Is it Injuries FC or Tottenham Hotspur FC?


Ange Postecoglou must manage an injury or a ban to one of his Tottenham Hotspur players each and every game.


Goal scorer Pape Matar Sarr added his name to that list during Spurs’ 3-1 victory over Bournemouth after he was substituted off the field due to injury in the first half.

Shortly before, the £15 million acquisition had given his side the lead when he took advantage of an error made by Bournemouth, advanced, and slotted the ball into the goal.


Ian Wright told Premier League Productions (31/12/23 at 3:05 pm) said he was “sad” for Pape Matar Sarr and that he hoped the player would be fit for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations.


The Senegalese international was sobbing and obviously upset that he was unable to finish the match while receiving counseling from Son Heung-min as he left the field.


Although the full degree of his injuries is unknown, the fact that he was able to walk off indicates that he will be trying to recover over the next few days.


Regarding Sarr’s goal, Wright remarked, “We have seen a lot of this, goalkeepers trying to play out when it’s not on.”


“I find it incomprehensible that Sarr received so many touches before firing his shot. There is nobody approaching him. Really unexpected from Bournemouth, but good job on him.


Regarding Sarr’s injury, I feel bad for him. Depending on how bad it becomes, he might miss the AFCONs that he has. I’m hoping he’ll be okay.




Tottenham is back to winning ways.

As Spurs defeated Bournemouth with all three points, their fierce rivals Arsenal lost by even bigger margin.


Spurs are only one point behind their neighbors after Mikel Arteta’s squad lost 2-1 at Fulham. Spurs are currently in fifth place.


It also implies that Liverpool, led by Jurgen Klopp, will have the opportunity to widen their lead at the top when they visit Newcastle United on New Year’s Day.


Right now, only three points separate first and fifth place for Jurgen Klopp’s team and Aston Villa, who are now in second place.
