Tottenham Hotspur could be without left-back Ben Davies for up to three weeks, according to the Evening Standard.
Davies initially reported for international duty with Wales but has since returned to London after being unable to feature in their World Cup qualifying double header along with a friendly against Mexico.
Welsh caretaker boss Robert Page confirmed that the defender had suffered a suffered soft tissue injury while also describing the problem as ‘significant’ (BBC).
Tottenham’s other left-back Sergio Reguilon, who was not called up for duty with Spain was also forced to hobble off during the 2-0 win at Aston Villa on Sunday with Davies taking his place in the second half.
Tottenham will certainly be hoping that Reguilon’s problem isn’t as severe as Davies’ otherwise Jose Mourinho could face the prospect of travelling to Newcastle United early next month without a senior left-back. Previously, the club had been able to utilise Jan Vertonghen as cover, until he left on a free transfer to join Benfica in the summer.
