Can Clinton N'Jie have a late impact on the title race for Tottenham?

Tottenham Hotspur missed out on a golden chance to pull clear of rivals Arsenal at the weekend, instead being held to a 2-2 draw at home.

Star striker Harry Kane scored an outstanding goal, but the lack of attacking options available from the bench was highlighted late on as they tried and failed to kill off the game.

One player who could yet have an impact in the title race is summer signing Clinton N'Jie, who has been out of action since injuring his knee in the Europa League against Monaco at the end of last year.

With games against Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League adding to their Premier League commitments, Spurs need options available and N'Jie returning to fitness over the coming weeks would be a big help. report N'Jie is due to return on March 19, ahead of the home fixture in the league with Bournemouth.

This will set him up to be available for key April clashes against Liverpool, Manchester United, and Chelsea, with the next round of Europa fixtures mixed in too if Spurs get past Dortmund over two legs.

N'Jie, 22, was a summer signing from Lyon but did not really get going prior to his injury, used mainly as an impact substitute, and has largely been a forgotten figure as Spurs have charged up the table.

Now with time on the sidelines and a chance to work on his fitness and suitability to the Premier League, he could be returning at the perfect time with fresh legs to make an impact, and become an unlikely hero in his very first season in England.
