Spurs midfield injury crisis piles up


Jermaine Jenas - Header

Spurs are suffering a midfield injury crisis ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup tie with Fulham, as Jermain Jenas and Aaron Lennon have been confirmed as long term absentees.

Jenas has been sent for an operation on his groin, whilst Lennon’s groin problem will keep him out for another six weeks.

With Tom Huddlestone stretchered off against Everton and David Bentley missing the game with yet another groin injury, Spurs are lacking in midfield options as they hope to continue their push for the FA Cup as well as their league position.

Spurs are sweating over the extent of Huddlestone’s injury, as the influential playmaker is set to under-go scans on his ankle and foot today.

Harry Redknapp has been left with a lot of frustration as the injury list piles up, revealing the extent of his problems.

“David Bentley has a tear in his groin and Lennon’s got to rest for six weeks. We are picking up knocks to key players.

“Jenas looks like having an operation on Wednesday.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. with all these midfeld problems why cant we re-call o hara????

    surley hes got the steel we could need in the middle of the pitch?

    he may not be the biggest guy, bet he does get stuck in!!!

  2. Yes it’s a concern but don’t forget Kranjcar and Modric can play centre midfield,we could also call back Jamie O’Hara and not to forget Dos Santos who only went out on loan.

  3. harry knew we were lightweight in midfield so instead of buying a central midfielder in january he bought kaboul back when we had defensive cover as corluka could of played centre back or dervite with naughton, hutton, walker or assou used as right back. So i blame harry for this lack of midfield back up.

  4. J – you are a dick

    We have a couple of injuries… so what!

    Squad can handle it, just like we learnt to play without lennon, we can play without the Thud.

    not sure we can bring Ohara back and if he even wants to come back. BUT if yes/yes … get him now or we might never see him again

  5. Ledleydaking, dont come on here abusing people because you disagree with their opinion, it’s not what the site is all about son.

  6. great so lennon is out for ANOTHER 6 weeks, this is a joke.
    he makes at least 5 more chances a game and scares the hell out of defenders, we really miss him

  7. I think the team needs to look at the fact so many players are suffering groin problems. I’m guessing proper stretching or certain fitness techniques could be used. Figure something out that prevents any more groin problems please. Common sense Harry.

  8. Maybe we are over working our team in training, maybe the way the players are being coached, could be causing these injuries, as it is odd to have so many out with the same problems, ie groin.

  9. Spurs do have a bad history of players suffering from long term injuries. We have had enough sick notes. Physios have got to be looked into. Smting, smwhere is not right. Hope we don’t lose good talents like we did with Anderton.
