James Maddison's swift recovery to provide a boost for Spurs vs. Bournemouth.

England international James Maddison is poised to make a swift return to action, all set to take on Bournemouth this Saturday following his recent injury scare last weekend against Manchester United.

Manager Ange Postecoglou provided an encouraging update on the situation, affirming that the Tottenham creative midfielder had participated in training without any restrictions today.

Maddison's departure from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on crutches initially raised concerns about his availability. However, he swiftly dispelled worries, clarifying: ‘Madders trained today unrestricted. We'll see how he holds up but at the moment he will be available.’

Elaborating on the injury incident, Postecoglou shared: ‘I think it was the incident when Romero got brought down, he had a shot and it was a block tackle. His ankle was a bit sore after that but the medical team looked after him.’

He further elucidated the circumstances, stating: ‘There was no real push to have him available. It was down to him. People would have seen him in a moon boot but it was more precautionary. He has felt good and probably could have trained yesterday.’

In regard to the future of Hugo Lloris at Spurs, the manager weighed in. The French goalkeeper's intent to depart the club had been evident since June, and Guglielmo Vicario has since assumed the role of the new primary goalkeeper, with Fraser Forster as the backup against United.

Commenting on the dynamics of the team composition, Postecoglou remarked: ‘ You can't just have any number of players you want and I'd say it's unlikely we'll have three goalkeepers on our list.’
