How Tottenham’s injury record this season compares to previous seasons

Tottenham Hotspur have had more than their fair share of injuries to key players during the current season.

At key parts of the campaign, they have been without the likes of Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli, Jan Vertonghen, Lucas Moura, Davinson Sanchez and Danny Rose.

Prior to the start of this season, Tottenham had averaged 15.5 injuries per season since the beginning of the 2012/2013 campaign.  

In contrast, we are still in January and Mauricio Pochettino has already reached 37 injuries already.

The latest two injuries occurred in yesterday’s Carabao Cup exit against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge when both Ben Davies and Moussa Sissoko both had to be substituted.

Some Spurs fans will have their own theories as to why this season has seen a massive increase in the number of setbacks our players have experienced.

Last summer’s World Cup along with the limited break which the likes of Lloris, Kane, Dele, Trippier, Dier and co had will certainly have had an impact, coupled with the demand placed on the squad to play every few games due to Daniel Levy’s reluctance to spend on new players.

If this trend continues, our top four hopes will become a big concern.
