John Wenham, who regularly breaks news regarding Tottenham’s youth players on his social media channel, Lilywhite Rose, has revealed that Ashley Phillips picked up an injury while featuring for England’s Under-19s on Tuesday.

A plethora of injuries are currently plaguing Ange Postecoglou; Richard Leonardison, James Maddison, and Micky Van de Ven are among those on the treatment table alongside Ryan Sessegnon, Ivan Perisic, and Mannor Solomon.

Desity Udogie is also questionable for the match against Villa due to a hamstring injury (The Athletic), and Cristian Romero is out for two more games due to suspension.

As a result, Postecoglou was forced to start Ben Davies and Eric Dier as a center back against Wolves, leaving him down to the bare minimum in defense.

Tottenham’s lack of pace at the back left them quite exposed at times at the Molineux Stadium, which has perhaps raised the possibility of the Australian turning to an academy player against Aston Villa.

Ashley Phillips picks up injury on England duty

Postecoglou may have to postpone his plans if he intended to start Phillips on Sunday, though, as Lilywhite Rose has reported that the 18-year-old injured himself during England Under-19’s match against Mexico.


Hopefully, Phillips’ injury was not too serious and he was removed from the game as a precaution. With all of the injuries and suspensions the teenager is currently dealing with, Postecoglou needs him as a bench option even though it was unlikely that he would start against Villa.

Raphinha may be joining the Saudi Pro League instead, according to rumors, thus Tottenham’s hopes of signing him could be dashed. The winger has been linked to Spurs, who apparently were willing to send a player to Barcelona as part of the deal.

Ange Postecoglou wants to add more players to the squad in order to capitalize on his strong start at Tottenham. The team enjoyed its best start to a season since they won the double in 1961 when he won nine of his first ten Premier League games in charge.

During his first window in command, the Australian made significant acquisitions, bringing in Guglielmo Vicario, Micky van de Ven, and James Maddison. To contend with teams like Manchester City, Spurs will need to bolster their depth at several spots.

There was a big void in the assault after Harry Kane left, which Heung-min Son has done a great job of filling thus far. However, Postecoglou has few choices to choose from behind the customary starting lineup.

Tottenham has been connected to a deal for Raphinha as a result. According to Spanish publication Sport, they will work hard to sign the former Leeds player in January.

Raphinha is apparently being sought for roughly £61 million by Barca, a price that Spurs now considers excessive. Nevertheless, the residents of North London were prepared to lower the cost by providing players with in return.

According to the source, Barca is interested in Cristian Romero among other names. But a recent development has cast serious doubt on any possible swap agreement.

Sport reported on Wednesday that Raphinha is a top target for Al-Hilal, a Saudi Pro League team. Neymar is now sidelined for Al-Hilal because of an anterior cruciate ligament injury he sustained earlier in the season.

They have targeted Neymar’s international teammate in an attempt to bring in reinforcements out wide. Al-Hilal presently leads the Saudi Arabian market, and with their financial capabilities, they could easily outbid Spurs on any deal.

During his previous stay in England, Raphinha made 67 appearances for Leeds, tallying 12 assists and scoring 17 goals. However, Spurs might not be able to get him back to the Premier League this time.

In January, Postecoglou also hopes to bolster defenses. Due to Romero’s suspension and Van van den Ven’s injury, Eric Dier and Ben Davies have recently been pressed into action.
