Latest Tottenham injury news: Six miss Liverpool and Ange Postecoglou faces double dilemma

Ange Postecoglou faces some major dilemmas ahead of Liverpool, courtesy of Tottenham’s injury list. During the North London Derby defeat to Arsenal, Spurs lost Timo Werner to a muscle problem and Postecoglou revealed the severity of his injury before also confirming a further blow to his fitness.

“Unfortunately we had a couple of problems during the game. Timo with his hamstring obviously, so we have two and a half weeks left and he will miss the rest of the season,” said the Tottenham boss. earlier this week. “Ben Davies has a calf injury and is out of the game and will likely miss the rest of the season as well.”

As a result, Emerson Royal and Richarlison were brought into the starting XI, however, the Brazilian duo struggled to make an impact at Stamford Bridge. Despite the poor defeat, a possible positive outcome of the clash was the latest injury news.

“It’s very difficult to say a short recovery,” Postecoglou said when asked about injury updates ahead of Liverpool. “Obviously some of the lads are still feeling the effects of the game. I’ll have a better idea this afternoon. I don’t think, knock on wood, that anything significant came of it (the game against Chelsea).”

The Lilywhites now head to Anfield after three consecutive defeats, but perhaps fortunately for Postecoglou, Liverpool are winless in as many games. Injury problems are also affecting Jurgen Klopp, with Diogo Jota still unavailable, while defensive duo Conor Bradley and Virgil van Dijk are big doubts.

In north London, with the hope that everyone will emerge unscathed from the game against Chelsea, Postecoglou’s absentee list will remain at six. Werner and Davies recently joined Destiny Udogie as missing with a muscle problem in a treatment room that already consisted of Fraser Forster, Manor Solomon and Ryan Sessegnon.
