Tottenham handed timely personnel boost ahead of Watford
The latest images stemming from the training ground of Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur will no doubt bring a collective smile to the faces of the club’s fanbase.
Antonio Conte’s men are of course primed to return to action this weekend.
After seeing a stellar recent spell of form brought to something of a halt at the hands of Southampton during the week, Spurs will turn their attentions towards a meeting with another of the Premier League’s bottom-half clubs, this time in the form of Watford.
Claudio Ranieri’s Hornets have endured a tough time of it of late, dragged firmly into the relegation scrap owing to five successive league defeats.
As such, it goes without saying that a return to winning ways is very much on the agenda for Tottenham on Saturday, amid efforts to keep pace with the Premier League’s top-4 chasing pack.

The Argentine, a summer arrival from Serie A outfit Atalanta, was of course just beginning to find his feet in north London before being ruled out for a lengthy stretch owing to injury last month.
Claims, though, are now beginning to mount that Romero is in line for an early return to the pitch, handing boss Antonio Conte a much-needed additional option at the heart of his backline moving forward.
