Tottenham Hotspur did not have the ideal start to this Premier League season, with the World Cup heavily disrupting preparations.
Spurs had nine players in the World Cup semi finals, meaning the majority of their first team played the maximum number of games possible in Russia.
This did not afford Tottenham much of a pre-season, as their players were at the tournament until the very end, before needing a couple of weeks of holiday.
It also meant that the majority of the first team came back fatigued from such a hectic non-stop schedule, something that continued through the season.
Tottenham played a whopping 17 matches in December and January alone, and perhaps these factors have contributed to a heavy injury list all season.
TBR Football believe Spurs’ upcoming mid-season break could finally give the team a chance to recharge and fight the fatigue.
Spurs are set to have 22 days without a single game after their Prem match against Crystal Palace was rescheduled.
They will likely fly away to a training camp outside the UK.
