Prior to their match against Everton this weekend, Tottenham is still without a number of important players.
Spurs under Ange Postecoglou are still impressive in spite of their persistent injury crises and suspension issues. They defeated Nottingham Forest last Friday, but it wasn’t without a cost: midfielder Yves Bissouma received a red card for a careless challenge on Ryan Yates in the second half.
Due to suspension, Italian defender Destiny Udogie, one of the Lilywhites’ best players this season, will not play against Everton this weekend, leaving Australian manager Postecoglou with little options. Despite having a large number of injured players, they are improving on the field as seen by their consecutive victories, which have put them in fifth place, one point behind Manchester City in fourth.
Despite having nearly a complete roster, Tottenham went undefeated in their first ten league games. However, injuries to players like Micky van de Ven and James Maddison have undoubtedly affected their play. Before victories against Newcastle United and Nottingham Forest, Pape Matar Sarr’s injury and Cristian Romero’s return from suspension undoubtedly contributed to the team’s ability to earn a point against Manchester City.
They have a whole week to get ready for the league game this weekend, so being eliminated from the League Cup early may actually be a gift in disguise.
Spurs have completely destroyed teams this season when they are at their peak and healthy. Even though they now have excellent players, bringing some of them back is essential to getting them back into the Champions League. In light of that, let’s take a look at the most recent Tottenham injuries.
1. Micky van de Ven
It won’t be possible to get the Dutch defender until at least January 2024.
2. Ryan Sessegnon
Another whose return is not anticipated until mid-January. January 14, 2024.
3. Ivan Perisic
excluded until the 2024 summer and won’t return to action this year.
4. Manor Solomon
had a meniscus injury to his knee and wasn’t well enough to return until at least mid-January.
5. Rodrigo Bentancur
After missing eight months due to a knee injury, he recently made a full recovery, and now he has another ankle problem. Probably coming back in February.
