In what comes as a boost to Tottenham, Football.London have revealed that Richarlison’s latest injury is not expected to sideline the forward for too long.
Richarlison has endured a frustrating first season at Spurs since his big-money move from Everton last summer, with the 25-year-old suffering multiple injuries over the course of the campaign.
The Brazilian sustained a calf injury in October and only returned to action just before the World Cup in Qatar before picking up a hamstring injury in the quarter-final against Croatia, which kept him out of action until mid-January.
It seemed as though Richarlison might have finally turned a corner when he produced his best display in a Tottenham shirt so far in the 3-1 win over Nottingham Forest.
However, the forward only managed a couple of minutes against Southampton before leaving the pitch in tears, with the injury causing him to withdraw from the Brazil squad for their friendly against Morocco.
Football.London have now revealed that Richarlison’s most recent calf problem is not thought to be serious and that there is a belief at Spurs that he will return to action ‘sooner rather than later’.

This is very good news as Cristian Stellini and Ryan Mason are going to need as close to a fully fit squad as possible to have a reasonable chance of guiding the team to a top-four finish.
Richarlison will certainly have an important part to play, particularly given the form he has shown recently.
