Tottenham Hotspur journalist Alasdair Gold has been speaking on his latest YouTube video to discuss all things related to the north London club. 

One player which the journalist did speak about was the returning Oliver Skipp after his season-long loan spell at City in the 2020/21 campaign.

Should Oliver Skipp start for Spurs this season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Skipp featured heavily for the Canaries last season, however he suffered a metatarsal injury in the penultimate game of the season which saw the midfielder undergo surgery.

The young midfielder was pictured in Spurs training last week which sparked excitement among the Spurs fans and Gold provided an update on his return from injury.

(1:52) “Some good news was seeing Oliver Skipp back. I wrote a piece just a few days back saying that he was ahead of his recovery time. And then I think it was either Friday or Saturday, the club showed him kind of taking part in some group exercises.

“From what I understand, they’re hoping that he’ll be back in full with the group next week which is brilliant.” 

TIF Thoughts on Skipp’s return…

The return of Skipp from his loan spell at the Canaries may come as a welcome one for the north London side.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg impressed for Spurs last season but the Danish midfielder played every single minute of Premier League football for the Lilywhites (via Transfermarkt).

With Oliver Skipp back in N17, he could certainly prove an option for Nuno Espirito Santo to take off some of the load put on Hojbjerg who will enter the 2021/22 season after playing every minute for Denmark at Euro 2020.

The youngster clearly earned the trust of last season as the manager played the midfielder in 45 of their 46 games – only missing the final game due to injury (via Transfermarkt).
