‘Will miss out’: Ange Postecoglou confirms £50m Tottenham player won’t be playing against Liverpool

Tottenham face Liverpool this weekend in a game that should be an absolute cracker.



On Saturday in north London, there will be a ton of offensive potential on display, but alas, one of Spurs’ most exciting forward talents won’t be playing.

Brennan Johnson will not play against Liverpool this weekend, as Ange Postecoglou announced in a video shared on Tottenham’s social media.

Johnson won’t play against Liverpool

Postecoglou shared a disappointing update on the Welshman.

“Brennan will miss out this week, it’s nothing too serious but enough to keep him out this week,” Postecoglou said.


Johnson missing this game is a huge disappointment.

Against Joe Gomez or Trent Alexander-Arnold, who, with all due respect, haven’t been playing their finest defense lately, the winger could’ve had a field day down the left flank.

Though it is not entirely unexpected to learn that Johnson will be absent. After all, the £50 million man had a diagnostic on his hamstring earlier this week, according to Alasdair Gold of the Gold and Guest Talk Tottenham Podcast, so it would seem that is the problem keeping him out.

“Brendan Johnson is the same. In the midst of this week, he underwent a preventative scan to see how things were going. According to what I gather, it was done largely out of prudence. I would love to see him in full flight going at that Liverpool defense, especially at home. Hopefully, it was just a tight hamstring with him. Whether they take the chance and start him or maybe they put him on the bench.

However, as Postecoglou notes, it appears as though this scenario isn’t too bad, and he should be ready for next week’s match against the New York Jets. Of course, hamstring injuries can be pretty difficult and can take a while to heal from, especially if you’re a player that depends on pace.

Johnson was just starting to get hot for Tottenham before this injury, so let’s hope he can bounce back even stronger..


Report: Spurs advised to target where Liverpool have been proven ‘to be vulnerable’

When they play this weekend, Tottenham has been told to take advantage of Liverpool’s weakness in the early going.

According to Daily Express columnist Matthew Dunn, for Spurs to take advantage of this vulnerability, the game must get off to a great start.

Liverpool has scored 15 goals while without giving up a goal in the second half of any games this season.

Although they have given up the first goal in five games, they have bounced back to win each time.

According to Dunn’s article, Tottenham had a history of sluggish starts under former manager Antonio Conte, but Ange Postecoglou is aiming to fix this problem.

Tottenham hasn’t lost a game without scoring since Postecoglou took over, and the team has played with more aggressive intent right away.

The report also mentions that this season, both sides have shown a tendency to play their best second halves of games.

Spurs also had a great attitude to make a late comeback against Sheffield United, scoring twice in stoppage time to turn the game around. Liverpool has scored 7 goals in the final 10 minutes so far.

Similar to how they did during the North London Derby last week, they replied right away to both of Arsenal’s scores.

One thing is certain when this is kept in mind. There will be goals in the game, and the final minutes may determine the result.

Given the quality of players on both sides and their attacking styles, the match is expected to be highly
