We are pleased to have Dr. Rajpal Brar, an expert on injuries, as our exclusive columnist. He will provide his opinions on Tottenham Hotspur’s injury status every week.


Dr Rajpal Brar suggests that Ryan Yates of Nottingham Forest may have suffered ligament damage as a result of Yves Bissouma, a Tottenham midfielder.


After going head-to-head with the Forest star, the Mali international was given a red card; however, this occurred after VAR entered the match on December 15.


When video of the challenge surfaced on December 17, at 9:53 p.m., Tim Sherwood of Premier League Productions criticised the midfield player, saying, “That is a disgusting tackle by Bissouma.” Why must he perform this task?




Dr. Brar, a sports scientist and physical therapist, spoke exclusively with Tottenham News about the current state of play.


“I have to agree with Sherwood’s judgement, characterising it as an abhorrent challenge.


“There’s a chance the opponent’s planted foot could harm some knee ligaments if sufficient power is applied.


“Just a shoddy challenge that could jeopardise people’s safety.”

The 27-year-old will serve a four-game suspension for receiving the red card, which is his second sending-off of the year.


He won’t be available for the first team until at least the end of the month due to his January travels for the Africa Cup of Nations.


He missed Saturday’s 2-1 victory over Everton and is expected to miss the upcoming matches against Burnley, Brighton, and Bournemouth.
