Tottenham could welcome four first team players back into the side for the visit of Crystal Palace this Saturday, as per the club’s official Twitter account.
They tweeted that central midfield duo Eric Dier and Tanguy Ndombele as well as young English full backs Kyle Walker-Peters and Ryan Sessegnon have all been training and will be considered for selection.
Ndombele has shown signs of promise but missed the north London derby last time around because of a thigh problem, while fellow summer new-boy Sessegnon is yet to make his debut having come in from Fulham with a hamstring issue.
Walker-Peters needs to establish himself as the club’s first choice right back but faces competition from Serge Aurier, while Dier may also struggle to force his way into the side.
The return of top flight football marks something of a fresh start for Spurs’ season after a slow and tricky start where they’ve had two tough away games and had to deal with uncertainty over the future of some key men.
Four returning players adds to the sense that this is where their campaign starts in earnest and there was excitement among the fanbase about the early injury news.
It remains to be seen how many of the returning faces will make the team against Roy Hodgson’s men but Tottenham certainly have more options now.

Good to hear Tanguy and Sess are fit. Sanchez being out is bad but it does mean we’ll definitely play Jan and Toby next to each other. Overall good news (apart from Gio)
