Injury issues mounting for Ange after Fabrizio Romano shares more bad news out of Tottenham

After losing in the league for the first time this season on Monday, Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou now has to deal with more concerning injury news.

Spurs absentees in full

In the Premier League, the Lilywhites lost to Chelsea 4-1 at home. It was an enjoyable match for the impartial spectator, but Postecoglou would want to forget about it quickly. While Spurs were reduced to nine men in the second half, they were commended for their audacity in playing a high line. These were just a few of the game’s many positives.

Some important players did, however, also leave the pitch throughout the game. More worryingly, Mauricio Pochettino’s team forced the removal of James Maddison and Micky van de Ven due to injuries. Cristian Romero and Destiny Udogie were given red cards.

Postecoglou said after the game that Maddison had taken a hit to the ankle, but van de Ven’s injury appeared to be far more “serious” as he walked off the turf while gripping his hamstring.

“It’s too early but looking at Micky you’re thinking it’s a pretty significant one so you’d assume he’ll be out for a little while.”Regarding Maddison and van de Ven, Postecoglou stated.

“Madders got a knock on the ankle and we’ll just have to assess him and see how it is.”

Spurs’ early-season success has been largely attributed to the two, with Postecoglou having the greatest start of any new manager in Premier League history.

On the list of absentees are Maddison, van de Ven, Romero, Udogie, Ivan Perisic, Manor Solomon, Ryan Sessegnon, Alfie Whiteman, and Ben Davies. According to reports from the past 24 hours, Postecoglou will now be without a player for the foreseeable future.

Richarlison set for surgery


In fact, forward Rickardson has declared that surgery is planned to address a chronic problem with his pubic bone. Fabrizio Romano has provided an update on this development. As a result, it looks like the Brazil international will miss some time due to injury, with Postecoglou’s problems now becoming worse at N17.

“It’s not been an easy few months for me… I’ve experienced health issues,” Richarlison stated on Tuesday.

“I’ve previously discussed my upcoming pubic surgery with the physicians. It seems like it’s time to relax.

Richarlison has been a constant for Spurs this season despite occasional criticism, starting seven league games and participating in 10 total. It’s unclear if the 26-year-old’s pubic bone problem is the reason he didn’t play in their match against Chelsea, although he was on the bench. Postecoglou described Richarlison as a “fantastic” player following his game-winning goal and assist in a thrilling 2-1 victory over Sheffield United in September.

Regarding Richarlison to Match of the Day, Postecoglou remarked, “He’s an incredible football player.”
