Big boost for Spurs: 21-year-old pictured in training ahead of Palace game

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham Hotspur have received a much-needed boost ahead of their upcoming fixture against Crystal Palace, with star defender Destiny Udogie returning to full training.

The left-back’s return comes following a minor injury that sidelined him, along with Pedro Porro, in their last match.

While Porro’s availability remains uncertain pending a late fitness test, Udogie’s presence in training suggests a potential return to action for the weekend’s game.

Tottenham’s official X account shared an image of Udogie back in training, signaling positive progress in his recovery.

Ange Postecoglou felt the absence of both full-backs during the 2-1 defeat to Wolves.

The defeat saw Spurs slip to 5th in the Premier League table, with Aston Villa seizing the 4th spot after successive victories over Fulham and Nottingham Forest.

Currently trailing Aston Villa by 5 points, Tottenham hold a game in hand, providing them with an opportunity to close the gap in the race for a top-four finish.

Unlike Villa, who are also competing in the UEFA Europa Conference League, Spurs have the advantage of focusing solely on league fixtures.

However, with the competition for Champions League qualification heating up, Tottenham cannot afford any more slip-ups.

The return of Udogie and the potential inclusion of Porro could provide a significant boost as they aim to secure a win against Crystal Palace and keep their Champions League hopes alive.
