To say that Tottenham Hotspur have had somewhat of an injury hit season would be an understatement to say the very least.
Mauricio Pochettino’s injury-ravaged squad took to the field against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last night and suffered another issue within the first half.
Ben Davies, who came back into the side in place of Danny Rose was forced off after 33 minutes.
The Welshman’s injury was astonishingly the 36th separate injury which Tottenham have had to deal with this season.
In the second half, Sissoko had to be replaced to take the tally to 37.
Some of the headaches which Pochettino have had to deal with have included:
Harry Kane (Ankle)
Dele Alli (Hamstring x3)
Davinson Sanchez (Hamstring)
Lucas Moura (Thigh)
Victor Wanyama (Knee)
Moussa Sissoko (Groin)
The injuries have certainly tested the depths of Pochettino’s squad and his team selection, yet his side are third in the Premier League, in the last sixteen of the Champions League, the fourth round of the FA Cup and made it to the semi-final of the Carabao Cup before losing on penalties.
