Tottenham will be without a key trio in January for the Asian Cup and the Africa Cup of Nations.
Ange Postecoglou, the manager of Tottenham, will face a challenge in January when three of his first-team players depart for international games. Postecoglou just won back-to-back Premier League Manager of the Month awards.
Tottenham has had an incredible first season in the Premier League thanks to last-second victories and brave draws that have propelled them to the top of the league standings.
They were not significantly impacted by the loss of Harry Kane, and they were not significantly impacted by the injuries of veteran players like Ivan Parisic, Manor Solomon, or even newcomer Brennan Johnson.
However, assuming their nations reach the competition’s final, Yves Bissouma and Pape Matar Sarr will only be absent for six weeks at the most due to the test that will take place when the Africa Cup of Nations begins in January.
From January 12, 2024, until February 10, 2024, captain Son Heung-min will be traveling to Qatar with Jurgen Klinsmann’s Taegeuk Warriors, during which Spurs will play four games that are previously arranged against Manchester United, Brentford, Everton, and Brighton.
It’s one thing to lose players to injuries, but losing your team’s captain and two of your most important midfielders will test your team’s willpower during what has otherwise been the best start to the season.
The Lilywhites are anticipated to enter the January market in an effort to bolster the team’s quality, but it is unclear how far the board will go to support Postecoglou, who has undeniably improved the club’s image.
