Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou might have the option of including James Maddison in the squad for the upcoming FA Cup clash against Manchester City.
Tottenham’s playmaker James Maddison has been sidelined due to an ankle injury since early November. However, he is reportedly on track to make a comeback within the next week, with the potential for his long-awaited return in the fourth-round tie against the current English champions.
Maddison has proven to be a crucial player for Spurs since his arrival from Leicester during the summer transfer window. In his 11 Premier League appearances before the injury, he contributed with three goals and five assists. His return to the squad will likely be welcomed by the team as they aim to strengthen their midfield options and boost their attacking capabilities.
Maddison’s potential return is not the only positive news for Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou. Manor Solomon, the Israel international winger signed from Shakhtar before the season, is also aiming to be back in contention for the FA Cup clash against Manchester City.
Solomon, who made five league appearances before sustaining an injury in September, could add another dimension to Spurs’ attacking options if he is fit for the highly anticipated match.
Maddison and Solomon will be eager to avoid any setbacks as they progress in their recoveries, aiming to return to action against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side.
