“He’s back” the highest paid Tottenham defender honestly says he’s fully back to face Everton

Tottenham Hotspur manager Ange Postecoglou has provided some good news on the player front ahead of Saturday’s Premier League meeting with Everton.

The Spurs boss has confirmed that Brennan Johnson, Giovani Lo Celso and Ashley Phillips are all available for the 3pm kickoff at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Johnson had to come off early in Tottenham’s win over Nottingham Forest last week after a clash of heads, but he has trained all week.

Meanwhile, Lo Celso sat out Spurs’ encounter with the Reds due to a muscle strain. He was a doubt prior to the Toffees game, but Postecoglou says he too is back.

And finally, Phillips returns to the fold ahead of schedule after suffering an ankle injury England Under-19 duty during the November international break.
