Photo: Tottenham handed boost as key man returns to training

Tottenham Hotspur appear to have been given a new boost fitness wise ahead of the showdown against Manchester United at Wembley stadium on Sunday.

The club published photographs of the training session which was held at Hotspur Way earlier on Thursday and the biggest news of the day was Jan Vertonghen being involved in the action.

The Belgium international suffered a thigh injury in the draw away to Barcelona in the Champions League back in December and he has been on the sidelines for a few weeks now.

But going into the game against Manchester United on Sunday, the 29-year-old is back on the pitch and he was spotted in the training session which was held on Thursday.

With Tottenham still keeping in touch with Liverpool and Manchester City in the title race, it is very vital to have everyone available.

Sunday’s game will be another chance to keep up the fight for a top four place while maintaining any slim hopes there are of winning the title.
