Nuno has some great news for Spurs fans ahead of NLD


Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo has welcomed Lucas Moura’s return to training ahead of the North London derby.

The Tottenham attacker is back in the fold after missing the last two games with a knock, and could feature against Arsenal.

Moura had to go off during the Europa Conference League draw at Rennes after being on the receiving end of a heavy challenge.

The Brazilian missed the Premier League loss to Chelsea and the Carabao Cup penalty shootout win over Wolves.

Likewise, Steven Bergwijn limped off during the Rennes game and missed the following two games.

But while the Dutchman remains on the sidelines, Nuno was able to provide better news on Bergwijn’s fellow attacking ace.

“It’s important to have all the options that we can have,” the Tottenham manager told the Spurs media team.

“It gives you so many solutions that we need and it’s so good to have Lucas back.”

Meanwhile, football.london quotes Nuno as saying: “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.

“Like I said to you, it’s a different game, it’s a different game. We must feel it.”

Bryan Gil is also in contention to start for Spurs on the flanks, with Harry Kane and Son Heung-min likely to complete the front line.

The 20-year-old, who was a late substitute against Chelsea last Sunday, started the Carabao Cup game at Molineux and impressed.
