It’s finally over. No more international football until March next year. None of those cruel muscle injuries that bug club managers when their players head out to represent their country.
The Premier League returns for a lengthy, non-disrupted spell at the weekend with an intriguing bunch of fixtures heading our way. One of the most exciting fixtures on paper has to be the visit of Mikel Arteta’s men to Leeds as they bid for a change of fortune after a miserable run of form before the international break.
It is unfortunate that Mohamed Elneny and Sead Kolasinac tested positive for COVID-19 while on international duty with Egypt and Bosnia respectively.
However, plenty of Spurs players have been in action all across the globe over the past week. Let’s see how they got on ahead of their return to proper (club) football, shall we?

4. Granit Xhaka – Switzerland

8. Runar Alex Runarsson – Iceland
10. Bernd Leno – Germany
