Barca attack picking up steam

Mido closing in on derby-day comeback

Tottenham striker Mido is expected to return to training in the next two days in his bid to overcome a groin injury in time to face Arsenal.

The 23-year-old has missed Spurs' last two games as the club aim to qualify for the Champions League.

Despite reports suggesting Mido stormed away from White Hart Lane having been told he was not fit to play against Manchester United yesterday, boss Martin Jol insists the 'sensible' option was made.

'Mido came in for an early fitness test but it was just too painful for him,' said Jol on

'We all agreed he was not fit to play, we also thought he might have a bit of an infection so it was sensible that he returned home.

'He desperately wanted to play. All season he has been training hard and I know he wants to help us get results in the last few matches.

'It's an injury that has niggled away at him, but I expect him to be out on the training ground again in the next 48 hours and I can assure you that he will do everything again this week to be available for Arsenal.'

Spurs face Arsenal at Highbury in a clash which could have a bearing on who claims the fourth Champions League spot for next season. The Gunners could also qualify at their rivals' expense if they win the competition.

Jol believes Mido adds the extra dimension to their attack which was missing in the 2-1 defeat by United.

He added: 'We missed him in the last 20 minutes against United because in the circumstances we were in, looking to try and get that equaliser, you would love to have a big man up front. Mido gives us that option.'
