Blow for Ange: “Monstrous” Tottenham player pulls up in training in yet another injury setback.

Ange Postecoglou has unbelievably been dealt a further fitness setback to one of his most experienced stars.

Tottenham Hotspur have been handed another new injury setback, with a fresh report revealing that one of their senior squad members has pulled up in pain following a recent training session.

Spurs injury news

The Lilywhites’ roster now includes Micky Van De Ven, James Maddison, Pape Matar Sarr, Rodrigo Bentancur, Ryan Sessegnon, Manor Solomon, Ashley Phillips, and Ivan Perisic, all of whom are sidelined due to personal issues, demonstrating the manager’s workload.

At the Etihad Stadium, Ange Postecoglou’s squad defeated Manchester City 3–3 in the Premier League, but there was definitely reason for alarm among the home crowd when they saw that another player’s name was absent from the roster.

Although Eric Dier has only made one start and the same number of substitute appearances in the top tier thus far this season (WhoScored – Dier statistics), the center-back has nevertheless been a part of most matchday squads.

Though the manager had not previously indicated that the England international would be missing, the England international’s disappearance over the weekend was unexpected. As a result, the 29-year-old has now been added to the long list of injured players.

Eric Dier sustains new injury

Football.London reports that Dier experienced some pain after training prior to Sunday’s match. As a result, he was ruled out of the trip and not risked to further aggravate his unidentified issue.

“Football.London understands the reason for Dier’s absence is due to the fact that he pulled up sore after training ahead of the game.”

Postecoglou could be in real trouble without “monstrous” Dier

Dier has been reduced to a supporting role under Postecoglou, but Spurs will be aware of his muscular presence in the middle of the backline, as seen by his four Premier League clearance average this season.

In addition to being sponsored by Nike, Cheltenham’s skill set is now registering an 89.2% pass completion percentage, demonstrating his ability to remain poised and in charge of the game when he has the ball in his hands.

The £85k-a-week player for the N17 team (Tottenham salaries) is also a versatile player who can play in five different positions across the pitch, including two midfield roles and all across the backline, making him a valuable asset to have on hand (Transfermarkt – Dier statistics).

Given the few choices he now has in the capital, Dier’s coach will be hoping he can stage his comeback sooner rather than later. Tottenham writer Dan Kilpatrick famously called Dier a “monstrous” player.
