Tottenham set to miss four vs Fulham with Johnson injury update and double boost

Tottenham injury news with the latest updates on Ange Postecoglou’s squad ahead of the clash with Fulham on Monday 

Ange Postecoglou has had an extra two days to work with his Tottenham squad after the international break and

He has no plans to abandon it. With several South American athletes joining Hotspur again Spurs hold a significant advantage with much less than three full days till the Premier League season began.

Given the relative lack of depth in the team compared to some of their top four and current title competitors, it is a minor benefit that they won’t want to give up, even if it means playing against them on Friday with less rest.Only a victory over London rival Fulham will allow Postecoglou and his team to reclaim the top spot in the standings, and they might be five points clear before any of their nearest competitors play again.

That is getting too far ahead though and for this match, hosting Fulham on Monday, Spurs have the chance to respond to Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool. With the extra few days to work things are in good order. “It’s been a pretty positive international break for us,” the boss admitted.

“In terms of availability I’ll address the international players first. Everyone is kind of back and medical reports seem to be good so no real issues around the guys from a fitness perspective.” Given the long-term injuries

already strewn among the company, this is a significant boost.Ryan Sessegnon is also injured, and Manor Solomon and Ivan Perisic will also be out for a little longer.

This has left a significant gap in the team’s wide offensive places, but fortunately, things haven’t gotten much worse during the past two weeks. “With Brennan [Johnson] he’s has had a good, solid couple of weeks of training which is good for him with the guys who have been left alongside [Rodrigo] Bentancur, [Bryan] Gil,” Postecoglou said. They’re all excellent. In that regard, Monday night was helpful. All of the international players ought to be accessible, and Brennan’s performance will be monitored over the following few days.

Johnson has only played twice so far since signing for Spurs from Nottingham Forest on deadline day. Arriving with a knock and struggling to overcome his fitness troubles, not being picked for Wales’ most recent squad has only gone to help the 22-year-old and he is now back in contention to play once more.

Previously, there was concern that the club captain would be endangering his position, but that does not appear to be the case. Additionally, after Dejan Kulusevski was involved in the Belgium vs. Sweden game that was abandoned due to a shooting in Brussels, Postecoglou confirmed chats with him this week.

The winger, one of Tottenham’s key players, is expected to play despite being involved in the incident or being close to it. The boss replied, “No, he is OK. “We had a conversation. Like everyone else, we shake our heads at incidents like these where people attend a football game and such things occur.

“Deki is fine, but it’s sad and a little confronting how similar it is to your real world. He participated in team training yesterday and is prepared to play. While the Swedish star is ready to go, Bentancur is still not ready.”We’ll be careful with him,” the manager said.

He is now sort of engaged in the entire training session because he is sort of thoroughly trained. He has been introduced to training gradually over the past month, and he has done well. He is currently in full training.

“We’ve got to be mindful that he’s missed a fair bit of football, but I think the more he trains with the first team over the next few weeks we’ll sort of pick our moment. He’s looking good at training and it was great to have him for the last couple of weeks to fully integrate with the guys who are here and we’re looking forward to having him back.”

Games are still too far for the Uruguayan international for now, but Gil has moved one step closer to becoming a real option as he gradually reintegrates back into the first team mix. The Spaniard also had a difficult time getting into a rhythm during the preseason and suffered a serious injury, but he returned to the team in time to play Luton.

He could be really valuable to us. His Australian head coach added, “He’s one like I said the last couple of weeks it has been amazing to see him simply working really hard at training. “He has been absent for the entirety of this campaign, and it has been widely documented that we lost Ivan and Manor, who play that left-wing position.It’s fantastic to have Bryan well and available once more.

“He’s, I guess, in the same boat as everyone else because at some point he’ll be forwarded an opportunity and then it’s up to him. He certainly has all the criteria and credentials to play in that position for us and, like I said, his training is getting stronger now, he’s part of the group and I’m sure he’ll get an opportunity.

“We’ve got a Monday night game and then we back it up with a Friday night game, so we’ll probably need a

the team to play those two games in the upcoming five or six days.Although Gil making the starting lineup on Monday would be unexpected, the team’s announcement might also be shocking.

Due to Yves Bissouma’s ban, a midfield position is available. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg appears to be the front-runner, but if Postecoglou wants to shake things up, Giovani Lo Celso’s return will help. The Argentine was chosen for his nation once more, although he has not yet made his league debut for Spurs this year and has been having trouble with his form and fitness for some time.

“He is obviously very highly regarded with the Argentinian set-up because they always call him up and he played in both games,” explained Lo Celso’s club manager. “He didn’t play significant minutes but he played in both and played 15-20 in the second game. It is great for him and his confidence.

“Unfortunately, he had a rocky start to the season for us, but he’s yet another player who hasn’t contributed, and that’s good for us. Even though we’ve been successful, some players, including Brennan, Bentancur, Gil, and Lo Celso, have yet to contribute significantly to our team.

“Having them back will give us the focus to sustain and keep enhancing the performances, even in terms of training and level-raising. The squad is protected from complacency and anyone feeling comfortable about things when there is competition during practice and games.

Once more, it suggests that the most recent injury updates from Hotspur Way will not necessarily result in rapid alterations to the first team. The available backup and rotational alternatives have caused many people to hold back on their calls for Postecoglou and his side to win the championship. The starting lineup is established and in top form, with only small changes due to fitness, minor modifications, or suspension.

On the other hand, there is greater freedom and choice as well as less pressure and workload on those starting nearly every game now that Lo Celso, Gil, Bentancur, and Johnson are all on their way back.
