Spurs face midfield injury crisis


Jermaine Jenas - Tottenham Hotspur News

Tottenham Hotspur face a midfield injury headache ahead of tomorrow night’s Europa League play-off, first leg at Hearts.

to Tom Huddlestone, Luka Modric, Jermain Jenas and Wilson Palacios and Sandro are all out injured but Rafael van der Vaart returns from his ankle injury. Jake Livermore is also expected to start.

“Tom’s had a problem with his ankle since the back end of last season,” Redknapp told the club’s official site.

“Luka has a groin problem, he’s not fit. Jermain Jenas has an Achilles problem, Wilson Palacios won’t be fit for tomorrow and Sandro is out long-term. They are all central midfield players.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. So whats happened to Kranjcar, is he also injured? You forget that Lennon and Bale are in the side and remember, Corluka can also play a holding role in the middle of the park if necessary. Personally I dont see a problem. As Modric is out with a groin problem, how long do you think it will take the media and Cheatski fans to start putting two and two together and coming up with five?

  2. haha midfield crisis and were selling the most creative central player we have available due to injuries (kranjcar) and second best behind modric when everbody is fit anyway that makes sense pffff
