Tottenham Hotspur will soon be heading to the operating table.
Tottenham Hotspur lost 1-4 to Chelsea in the 11th round of the 2023-24 Premier League (PL) at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England, on Sunday morning at 5 a.m. ET.
The result ended a 10-match unbeaten run for Tottenham, who failed to pick up another point and move back into first place.
The English publication The Athletic reported on an interview with the player after the game.
In it, he revealed that he was set to undergo surgery.
“The last few months have not been easy for me.
I’ve had health problems.
I’ve already spoken to the doctors and I’m going to have an operation on my pubic bone soon,” he confessed. 카지노사이트가이드
“For eight months I’ve been fighting for the national team and the club, and I didn’t take care of myself.
I think it’s time to stop and rest for a while.
I will think about the surgery in the next few days and make the best choice for me,” he added.
If he is ruled out, Spurs will be without all three of their left wingers.
Ivan Perisic has a torn cruciate ligament and is unlikely to return this season.
Manor Solomon has a meniscus injury and won’t return until 2024.
After Perisic and Solomon went down, Son Heung-min was playing in the center of the field, with Xherdan Shaqiri moving to the left.
Heung-min had been doing a decent job on the left side of the pitch, but the decision to undergo surgery has ruled him out for the foreseeable future.
Without him, Spurs will be left with only Son Heung-min, Brennan Johnson, and Dejan Kulusebski as their main attacking options.
If more injuries occur, backups will have to step up.
With no European competition this season and an early exit from the Football League Cup, Tottenham’s schedule is more relaxed than in other seasons.
But there’s still the A-League in November and Boxing Day in December.
Son will also have to play in the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup next January.
After suffering a major injury last season, Heung-min’s early season struggles with injuries are a concern.
When he had his last groin injury, we had substitutes to manage him, but now we don’t have anyone else to play without him.
