Injured Tottenham star confirms he will ‘definitely’ play against Aston Villa 

Destiny Udogie has handed Tottenham Hotspur a major boost by revealing that he will be fit for Sunday’s Premier League clash against Aston Villa on Sunday afternoon.

Udogie was forced to sit out the disappointing 2-1 defeat at Wolverhampton Wanderers after being sent off in the second half of the London derby against Chelsea when he picked up a second yellow card in the early moments of the second half at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

While Spurs did not release any information regarding the left-back’s fitness, Italy boss Luciano Spalletti confirmed last week that the defender was omitted from the national team squad for their Euro qualifier double header against North Macedonia and Ukraine due to injury (Sky Italia).

Destiny Udogie is fit to face Aston Villa

A few days ago, The Athletic’s Charlie Eccleshare confirmed that the 20-year-old was suffering from the same hamstring issue that kept him out of the clash against Crystal Palace last month.

The journalist stated that Spurs were hopeful that the former Udinese man would be fit to start against the Villains.

Ugogie has himself now confirmed to The Athletic that he is “feeling really good” and will “definitely” be ready to take to the pitch in North London come Sunday.

The youngster also remarked that he and his teammates are intent on getting back to winning ways after two disappointing results.

He added about the upcoming clash: “We’re at home so we have to go out and play for the win. We go on the pitch to win every game. So that’s the focus.”

This is fantastic news as the experiment of playing Emerson Royal at inverted left-back, which Ange was forced into against Wolves, did not work at all. I am now a lot more confident about our chances on Sunday knowing that Destiny Udogie will play.
