Spurs boss Nuno responds when asked if Bryan Gil will start in NLD

Spurs manager Nuno Espirito Santo has left the door open on potentially starting Bryan Gil in Sunday’s Premier League trip to Arsenal.

The 20-year-old, who joined Tottenham in the summer, has impressed fans with his dazzling, confident and hard-working displays.

Nuno hasn’t been afraid to give Gil a decent amount of game time since he arrived at N17.

He has started all three Europa Conference League games for Spurs, as well as the Carabao Cup trip to Wolves.

The Spaniard has also made two Premier League appearances off the bench – two minutes against Watford and 28 minutes against Chelsea.

With Steven Bergwijn out of action, there’s an opportunity for Gil to get his first Spurs start in the top flight this weekend.

That said, Lucas Moura is back in training after missing Tottenham’s last two games, so he could potentially start too.

When asked by whether Gil would get the nod against the Gunners, Nuno replied: “All the players, all the players.

“We have a session tomorrow to prepare and then we make the decisions.

“We have Lucas back also which is good news so let’s try to make and prepare the game.”

Gil impressed in his latest display, the Carabao Cup penalty shootout win at Molineux following a 2-2 draw.

As well as converting his penalty, he worked hard throughout the game, demanded the ball often, and looked to make things happen.

He could’ve even got himself a goal in the 90 minutes, but for John Ruddy’s impressive save.
