CHIPOLOPOLO midfield genius Enock Mwepu has returned to full training after several weeks out on the sidelines.
The 23-year-old has been out of action following a hamstring injury suffered in the club’s 2-1 FA Cup triumph over West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns on January 8.
Mwepu had since missed his team’s last three matches – which all ended in a 1-1 draw. Even though he has returned to training, he will play no part against Spurs.
“Enock Mwepu and Jeremy Sarmiento are back in training but won’t be considered on Saturday while Alexis Mac Allister is ruled out after testing positive for Covid on World Cup duty with Argentina,” the club continued.
Since joining the English side from RB Salzburg at the start of the 2021-22 campaign, the Zambian star boasts just one goal in the English topflight from six matches.
All things being equal, Mwepu could be ready for Brighton’s Premier League clash with Watford on February 12 at the Vicarage Road.
As it stands, Potter’s men are ninth in the log having accrued 30 points from 22 league matches in the 2021-22 season.
