Latest Tottenham injury news as nine miss Wolves with fresh James Maddison and Van de Ven update
Following Gareth Southgate’s problems, Tottenham is juggling bans and fitness concerns in front of their match against Wolves. James Madison’s report from England
An update on James Maddison’s health was sent to Tottenham after he left the game against Chelsea before halftime due to injury. Ange Postecoglou suffered two severe blows in the same minute, while Micky van de Ven was also taken out prior to halftime.
It left the boss with just 10 men and without two of his most crucial players, before Destiny Udogie’s red card worsened the position early in the second half.It is now Postecoglou’s task to strike a balance between suspension and fitness for one more game prior to the international break.
Following the international break, Spurs’ roster will be reduced for a two-week period as they prepare to play Wolves at Molineux on Saturday at an early kickoff. Even though Maddison had a knock on Monday, Gareth Southgate has still summoned him up and he is expected to play for England.
Following the names of Callum Wilson, Jude Bellingham, and Bukayo Saka, Maddison was by no means the only Three Lions player to be called up with concerns. “There are a few of those that we might lose tomorrow after a scan today,” the manager stated on Thursday.
