In Tottenham Hotspur’s fixture against Crystal Palace last weekend, the north London-based club didn’t have three key players in their squad as they were without Giovani Lo Celso, Cristian Romero, and Davinson Sanchez.
However, ahead of the heavyweight tilt with Chelsea this upcoming weekend, Nuno Espírito Santo’s squad could be seeing the calvary make their way. According to Sky Sports, the Portuguese tactician might have to throw in Lo Celso, Romero, and Sanchez straight into the match against The Blues.
For the last week, the three players have spent their quarantining in Croatia as the trio went to South America to compete for their national teams during the international window this month.
Despite Tottenham not wanting the players to depart, they decided to leave as the matches were FIFA World Cup Qualifiers.
It will be interesting to see what type of fitness level the three players have as they’ve been training on their own in Croatia ahead of the Chelsea matchup.
