Oliver Skipp has revealed that his recovery is going according to plan after undergoing surgery to repair a pubis injury.

Skipp was arguably Tottenham’s most consistent performer in the first half of the campaign, as one of the very few players who shone under Nuno Espirito Santo.

The midfielder quickly established himself as a favourite of Antonio Conte after the Italian arrived at the club in November of last year.

However, the 21-year-old has been out of action with a pelvic injury since the start of February, with Tottenham confirming a couple of weeks ago that the youngster had undergone surgery and would only return to action during pre-season ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

The Tottenham academy graduate put pen to paper on a new five-year contract with the Lilywhites last month, which is certainly just a reward for his progression over the last couple of years.

During his appearance on Spurs TV’s pre-match coverage ahead of the North London derby on Thursday evening, Skipp confirmed that his recovery is going according to plan.

When asked about his rehabilitation, the midfielder said on Spurs TV’s N17 Live (12/05/22 – 19:20): “It’s going really well thanks. It has been just about two weeks since my surgery and it is all going to plan so fingers crossed.”

Spurs Web Opinion

Skipp is going to be like a new signing for us in the summer, given how long he has been out of action for.

The 21-year-old’s absence has not been felt as badly as expected owing to Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s resurgence over the past couple of months.

However, I am really excited to see how a central midfield paring of Skipp and Bentancur would fare next season.
