Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that Davinson Sanchez has picked up a hamstring injury.
The central defender has had to play four matches in the space of a short period of time which is physically demanding for any professional footballer.
Sanchez last featured for Spurs in Wednesday night’s Champions League victory against PSV Eindhoven at Wembley, where he did manage to play the full 90 minutes.
Hamstring problems have been somewhat of an issue for Spurs this season with fellow central defender Jan Vertonghen currently sidelined with the same issue.
It is not known as of yet what grade of strain Sanchez has suffered. The 3 grades of hamstring injury are:
- grade 1 – a mild muscle pull or strain
- grade 2 – a partial muscle tear
- grade 3 – a complete muscle tear
The length of time it takes to recover from a hamstring strain or tear will depend on how severe the injury is.
A minor muscle pull or strain (grade 1) may take a few days to heal, whereas it could take weeks or months to recover from a muscle tear (grade 2 or 3).
A post on the official Spurs Twitter account confirmed: “@daosanchez26 misses out at Selhurst Park this evening with a hamstring injury.”
