Tottenham Hotspur: Michael Bridge reveals Oliver Skipp injury news -Tottenham Hotspur News

Sky Sports journalist Michael Bridge has now revealed some big Tottenham Hotspur injury news involving Oliver Skipp.

The Lowdown: Return closer

As per Football.London’s Spurs reporter Alasdair Gold, Skipp is now closing in on a return to action, and is feeling less pain as he continues his recovery from a pelvic injury.

The central midfielder has not featured for the North London club since the 2-0 loss away at Chelsea in the Premier League back in January, but now it looks as if he could make a swift return, with Antonio Conte’s team set to play against Newcastle United at home in their first game back after the international break.

The Latest: Newcastle return?

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, Bridge has revealed that the Lilywhites are now trying to target the match against the Magpies for Skipp’s potential return:

“I’ve not heard anything too negative.

Apparently, they’re trying to target Newcastle, but nothing’s set in stone yet, so they’ve got a week-and-a-half.”

The Verdict: Big boost

If Skipp is able to return to the XI straight away, then it will certainly be a big boost for Conte and his side.

Should Tottenham start Skipp?

Since his injury, THFC have lost four out of their last nine games in the top flight, and have also been knocked out of the FA Cup (Transfermarkt), suggesting that they are better with him in the team.

Skipp ranks highly among his teammates in terms of average tackles and passes per match in the league, while he boasts the best pass competition rate (90.1%) of any Tottenham player to have made ten or more appearances this season (WhoScored).
