How will Ange address Spurs’ defensive deficiencies?
It is undeniably the defense that is one of our 99 issues. Spurs’ defense is plagued by several serious problems.
Specifically, a deficiency of available and fit defensemen. After the Premier League transfer window closed and Spurs sold Davinson Sanchez, there was a fear that the team would be left with just three senior center backs, one of whom is obviously out of favor.
Now the universe is biting off more than it can chew. Spurs are down to just one starting defensive quartet after the chaos of the Dad DerbyTM, wherein Cristian Romero and Destiny Udogie both received red cards and suspensions, and Mickey van de Ven appeared to tear his hamstring. Even that defense is in doubt, as Pedro Porro missed practice yesterday due to rolling his ankle during the game.
