Tottenham’s injury list is currently far longer than they would have hoped at this stage of the season, with two new knocks picked up first team stars in the 2-0 win over Huddersfield yesterday.
Jan Vertonghen and Mousa Dembele join the likes of Christian Eriksen, Hugo Lloris, Michel Vorm and Dele Alli on the side lines.
This comes just three days before Spurs face Barcelona in the Champions League, but there may be even bigger problems on the horizon.
What’s the last thing you want when the injuries are piling up? More games.
After progressing in the Carabao Cup, and being in Europe’s top competition, Spurs look to be facing a huge 4 games in 8 days at the end of October, and will be praying to have a full squad back by then.
Spurs play Man City on the 29th of October after the fixture was moved to accommodate a busy Wembley. They are then likely to play West Ham on the 31st in the Carabao Cup forth round, before Wolves on the 4th of November and PSV on the 6th.
This could be a huge week for Tottenham, which could make or break their season across three different competitions.
