Tottenham’s injuries; they are dropping like flies.

Tottenham’s injuries; they are dropping like flies.

We have suffered a few injuries and other problems over the International break (an understatement)

The Premier League break has seen Cristian Romero, Davinson Sanchez and Giovani Lo Celso all still abroad following their trip to Brazil and cannot return to the UK just yet unless they wish to head to a quarantined hotel. Things certainly have not gone to plan with several other players having experienced issues. Oliver Skipp became the latest player to experience a potential problem after the midfielder was forced off during England Under-21’s win against Kosovo with a groin injury.

In the game Skipp played in, he headed straight down the tunnel after 81 minutes when he was hurt and was photographed looking to be in some distress.

Then there is Son, who suffered what I hope was a slight injury (quickly recoverable) when he played for South Korea. At the same time, Ryan Sessegnon had to withdraw from the England Under-21 squad earlier this week, having suffered a knock in training. Even Kane, there were suggestions that there might have been a slight knock against Poland (how true that is, I don’t know).

Now Nuno has to assess things.

The club will now assess Steven Bergwijn and Oliver Skipp after both sustained injuries over the international break. As I stated above, Skipp hobbled off with a groin strain during England U21’s win against Kosovo, while Bergwijn was substituted after an hour in the Netherlands’ 6-1 over Turkey. He was pictured on the bench with binding and an ice pack around his left foot. Both players have started in all three of our league games so far.

Thoughts

I hope that injuries aren’t too severe, and with the expert help from the doctors/ therapists, some can be quickly reinstated back to the squad. The International break is ending on a bummer, then there is Giovani Lo Celso, Cristian Romero and Davinson Sanchez, another annoying problem.

All this couldn’t have come at a worse time, especially as we lead in the Premier League, and now we are back and against Palace and at home (Saturday). They will now relish playing against us, with probably a smile on their faces. And who is now managing them? Patrick Vieira, and he is no friend of Tottenham’s. The former Gooner would relish getting one over on his old enemy.

But fingers crossed it isn’t as bad as it seems.

COYS!

Be safe, Glenn
