Ange Postecoglou has two new Tottenham undroppables vs Brighton after Romero injury blow

Latest Tottenham news with Ange Postecoglou likely already knowing two names on the team sheet to face Brighton

Without another important player, Ange Postecoglou will lead his Tottenham team to the south coast for a matchup with Brighton. Only a few weeks after recovering from an ACL injury, Rodrigo Bentancur joined the crucial duo on the injured list, forcing the Spurs manager to manage the last few months without James Maddison and Micky van de Ven.

The Uruguayan international played a variety of roles as a substitute before being brought into the starting lineup for the match against Aston Villa. But after becoming the victim of a terrible tackle by Matty Cash that caused part of his ankle ligaments to burst, he only lasted 32 minutes.

After losing that match, Spurs bounced back to win three of their next five games, including a thrilling away draw at Manchester City. Postecoglou’s availability for that option will now be limited for the next few weeks. “It’s not so great with Romero,” he said when asked about the player’s condition after he left the match against Everton on Saturday due to an injury. “He had a scan the other day. He’s got a hamstring strain. So we’re looking at probably four weeks, five weeks for him.”

Romero’s exclusion from the starting lineup suggests that Emerson Royal, who stood in at left back for the suspended Destiny Udogie, would likely hold his spot. Due to a string of yellow cards, the Italy international missed the match against Everton. As a result, he will probably return straight away, just in time for Postecoglou’s match against Brighton on Thursday.

Udogie makes a lot of mistakes in the build-up while he is not on the field, as seen by his driving runs from deep areas. Due to the absence of Romero and van de Ven, the backline will once more need to alter.

Eric Dier entered the game during halftime against Everton, but it appears exceedingly unlikely that the England international would start against the Seagulls.

Ben Davies, who has made a big impression since being thrust into the starting lineup, joined Emerson in the games that Romero and van de Ven missed earlier this season.Postecoglou’s remarks during the 4-1 victory against Newcastle indicate that he is also a major supporter of the Wales international.

Postecoglou conceded, “I thought Ben Davies was outstanding.” “He is having a string of victories. Although he’s developing into a center back, we must remember that he is not one yet. Ben’s still getting used to it. He’s performed really well.

“Especially in our system, center-back is still a position where exceptional qualities are required, therefore we’re lucky to have somebody who can fit in there. He’s quite good at processing information. Romero’s return has benefited him, and Vic has assumed a leadership position there as well.”

For Spurs to have any hope of winning their remaining four Premier League games in December and January, Davies will need to perform at the highest level since he will be without both Romero and van de Ven for the second time this season.
