Tottenham Hotspur assistant manager Cristian Stellini has told Football.London that Richarlison is ready to play against Manchester City at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the Premier League this weekend.
Stellini has said that Richarlison has trained this week, and that Tottenham head coach Antonio Conte will have the Brazil international forward at his disposal for the match against Pep Guardiola’s side.
Spurs will take on defending champions Manchester City in North London in the league on Sunday.
Tottenham will head into the match on the back of a 3-0 win against Preston North End away from home in the FA Cup.

Richarlison did not play in the tie due to injury.
The £175,000-a-week (SalarySport) former Everton star has been struggling with a hamstring injury since the 2022 Qatar World Cup.
But, according to Stellini, Richarlison is now ready to face City.
Richarlison available for Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester City
Stellini said about Richarlison: “Like I said after the last game Richarlison had a small problem and now he is available. He has been training in this week and he is available.”
In our view, it is very encouraging that Richarlison is available for Tottenham Hotspur against Manchester City.
It gives Spurs another option in attack.
Now, we know that Richarlison is not guaranteed a place in the Spurs starting lineup, but this weekend, he could well start.
After all, City manager Pep Guardiola will probably not expect the Brazilian to start, so if he does, then it will throw him off.
Richarlison is a very good forward who can score important goals and is mobile, and he could make a difference against City if he plays.
