Another injury setback for Tottenham Hotspur has been reported, with one of their senior squad members pulling up in pain after a recent training session.
Spurs injury updates
The Lilywhites’ roster currently includes Micky Van De Ven, James Maddison, Pape Matar Sarr, Rodrigo Bentancur, Ryan Sessegnon, Manor Solomon, Ashley Phillips, and Ivan Perisic, all of whom are sidelined due to personal issues, demonstrating the manager’s workload.
The Premier League match between Ange Postecoglou’s team and Manchester City ended in a well-earned 3-3 draw at the Etihad Stadium. However, fans may have been concerned when they saw another name missing from the roster.
The England international, though, was unexpectedly absent over the weekend given that the manager had not previously disclosed his absence. An update on the 29-year-old’s fitness has since surfaced, adding him to the long list of injured players.
Eric Dier gets hurt again.
Football.London reports that Dier experienced some discomfort after practice on Sunday, which means he was ruled out of the away game and not risked to avoid aggravating his unidentified problem.
“Football.London understands the reason for Dier’s absence is due to the fact that he pulled up sore after training ahead of the game.”
Without “monstrous” Dier, Postecoglou might be in serious danger.
Dier has been reduced to a supporting role under Postecoglou, but Spurs will be aware of his physical presence in the middle of the backline, as demonstrated by his four Premier League clearance average this season.
In addition to being sponsored by Nike, Cheltenham’s skill set is currently registering an 89.2% pass completion percentage, demonstrating his ability to remain composed and in control of the game when he has the ball in his hands.
The £85k-a-week player for the N17 team (Tottenham salaries) is also a versatile player who can play in five different positions throughout the pitch, including He fills two roles in the midfield and can play everywhere across the backline, making him a valuable option to have on hand (Transfermarkt – Dier statistics).
Given the limited options he currently has in the capital, Dier’s coach will be hoping he can stage his comeback sooner rather than later. Tottenham reporter Dan Kilpatrick once called Dier a “monstrous” player.
