Tottenham Hotspur’s senior team has been hit with injuries in recent weeks ahead of their crucial match against Ajax in the Champions League semi-final (PhysioRoom).
Harry Kane sustained another ankle ligament injury against Man City in the quarters, and Harry Winks has recently undergone groin surgery (Tottenham).
Moussa Sissoko, Erik Lamela, and Serge Aurier have also had stints on the sidelines, and Heung Min Son and Vincent Janssen are unavailable for the match.
However, Tottenham’s U23 youth team seemed to take a big hit in their 3-1 win over Derby yesterday too, as Troy Parrott was stretchered from the pitch.
This came after the Irish forward was on the wrong end of a late challenge from a Derby player.
Parrott has been in sensational form this season, scoring 17 goals in 23 games for the U23 and U19 sides.
This injury comes ahead of a busy summer schedule for the Irish national teams too, as the U17s have the European Championships, and the U21s have the Toulon Tournament.
However, the winger has now tweeted out positive injury news, claiming there were no broken bones and that he will return soon.
Very important win last night, the boys were excellent, thankfully the x-Ray went well and there’s no broken bones, thank you to everyone for the messages, I’ll be back soon ?? https://t.co/kshM1i76j1

Spurs Web Opinion:
Troy Parrott looks a real talent for Spurs, and despite the fact an injury at the moment wouldn’t hamper the senior team, it is always good for a youngster to get tournament experience. Parrott will only improve from playing in the U17 and U21 tournament with his national side, so fingers crossed he can get back to fitness as soon as possible.
