The Spurs have a key midfielder back ahead of their FA Cup clash against the Citizens.

Tottenham have received a significant injury boost as midfielder James Maddison returns to training after a two-and-a-half-month absence due to an ankle issue.

Maddison sustained the injury during Spurs’ 4-1 defeat to Chelsea on November 6, leading to his substitution at halftime. Initial concerns hinted at a lengthy layoff, but the 27-year-old appears set to make a comeback around three months after the injury.

Since his £45 million move from Leicester in the summer, Maddison has been a key figure for Tottenham, contributing three goals and six assists in 11 Premier League appearances. His return to action could coincide with Spurs’ upcoming game against Brentford in the Premier League.

Despite Maddison missing 10 Premier League matches, Tottenham has maintained decent form, currently sitting fifth in the table, just three points behind fourth-placed Aston Villa. The club has faced challenges, dropping points against teams like Brighton and Manchester United, but victories over Liverpool and Newcastle highlight their progress under manager Ange Postecoglou.

While Maddison is unlikely to feature in the FA Cup clash against Manchester City on Friday night, Spurs fans can anticipate his return to the squad soon. The midfielder, a pivotal player in Postecoglou’s system, will be eager to contribute and help Tottenham in their pursuit of a top-four finish.
