Tottenham Hotspurs’s defensive problems will be eased with the news Cristian Romero and Davinson Sanchez will return to the UK in time for the crunch clash Chelsea in the EPL.

South American contingent Romero, Sanchez and Giovani Lo Celso have been training in Croatia with a Spurs coach to avoid having to self-isolate for 10 days upon their return from international duty in red-list zones last week.

The trio are due to arrive back in England on Saturday, just 24 hours before their game against Chelsea.
Their returns come at a timely moment for coach Nuno Espirito Santo, whose plans in central defence are unclear heading into the weekend.

It remains to be seen whether the Spurs boss is prepared to throw the Argentine pair straight into action just a day after arriving back.
