Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has been given a boost for the title run-in after Clinton Njie continued his return to full fitness by training with the rest of the squad ahead of the crucial Premier League game against Manchester United on Sunday (10 April) . Erik Lamela, meanwhile, also appeared in the pictures provided by the club during the Wednesday's training session after he missed the last trip to Liverpool.

Pochettino signed Njie, the 22-year-old forward from Lyon during the summer transfer window to strengthen his attack due to his versatility in covering different areas, being able to play both on the wings and even as a back-up for Harry Kane. Njie was a regular in the Spurs bench during the first part of the season and had time to prove his pace with some impressive cameo appearances, providing an assist during the 4-1 win over Manchester City earlier in the campaign.

Yet, the Cameroonian saw his adaptation to the Premier League hampered before Christmas after he was forced to undergo surgery in his knee following the Europa League win over Monaco earlier in December 2015.

The forward is yet to play since then but earlier on March revealed that he was back on the pitch doing some light workouts in order to return to action in time to help Tottenham in the title race.

He said then: "It's important that I'm still hungry, I still want to play and I still want to prove to the fans what I can do so, for me, I just want to get back fit and do a good job. Mentally it hasn't been easy but it happens, so I've just been looking forward to coming back stronger. I can see the good job the guys are doing and I can't wait to get back onto the pitch and be part of it."

Pochettino suggested last week that his long-awaited comeback is just a matter of time and now looks closer after the club have posted a picture of him in full training ahead of the coming game with Manchester United.


"Cameroon international attacker Clinton Njie was among the training group as he continues his recovery from a knee injury," Tottenham added in the club website.

Lamela, meanwhile, looks also in line to return to action as the former Roma star was also in the session. He picked up a calf injury on national duty with but London Evening Standard said earlier this week that he and Jan Vertonghen could return to the first-team squad at the weekend.
