Any hope that Jose Mourinho may have had for a fully fit squad to choose from for Spurs’ first game back against Manchester United has since been extinguished this week.
It was reported earlier this week that Japhet Tanganga has been ruled out for several weeks after suffering a back stress fracture (Telegraph).
Meanwhile, Dele Alli will serve his one-match suspension on Friday, while reports indicate that Jose Mourinho might not risk Giovani Lo Celso for the clash either with the Argentine not training with the squad this week (Evening Standard).
TNT Sports now reports that Lo Celso’s international teammate, Juan Foyth, is also set to be sidelined after he suffering a knee injury in training.
The report claims that the 22-year-old has injured the meniscus in his right knee and that the club will soon decide whether or not he requires surgery. It has not yet been revealed how long the defender is expected to be out for.

The players have had a longer break than they usually do between seasons and so it is only natural that a few of them pick up niggles when they return. While the injury to Lo Celso does not seem too bad, it sounds like Foyth and Tanganga are both set to be sidelined for a considerable period. However, I am not sure that losing Foyth will be a huge loss for us as Jose Mourinho does not seem to trust him.
