From the Treatment Room

Head of Medical and Sports Science Stijn Vandenbroucke issues an update - in association with Spire Roding Hospital...

Hello everybody.

This week I will start by congratulating both Aaron Cresswell and Edimilson Fernandes on becoming full internationals with England and Switzerland respectively.

We are pleased for them both, and also happy to report that they, as well as everybody else who is back from international duty has come back in a good condition ready for the game at Tottenham Hotspur.

We have more good news that James Collins, Winston Reid and Diafra Sakho are all in full training and should be available for selection by the manager.

Aaron Cresswell
Ginge has come through his rehab after being withdrawn from the Wales squad with a calf injury, while Winston missed the Stoke City game and was not able to go away to play for New Zealand due to injury.

Diaf is now in his third week of full training and is getting fitter and stronger with every session.

Further encouraging news is that Arthur Masuaku is in his first week of full training with the PL2 squad after rehabbing from his knee injury and he will join the first-team squad next week.

Andy Carroll is also progressing with his rehab and trained with the PL2 squad this week.

Sam Byram is running on the pitch now following his hamstring injury. Sam is progressing well and working hard on his rehab with head physiotherpist Dom Rogan.

Reece Oxford has entered a new phase of rehab from his knee injury. Reece has now had the brace removed from his leg and is full weight-bearing. He will take the next step in his rehab soon.

Gokhan Tore is at the end of his rehab and will join training next week.
