Tottenham Injuries

2:30 pm
Tottenham Hotspur currently have 5 players on the injury table with all expected to return later this month, although Alex Pritchard could take longer.

Danny Rose

Danny Rose has a thumb and wrist injury after being accidentally trodden on. Boots have changed over the years, no longer are they the relatively harmless studs, which still hurt, but sharp blades that damage. Proposed return date 17 October.

Ryan Mason

Ryan Mason produced a Man of the Match display against Sunderland and scored the winning goal, in the process getting clatterd by their goalkeeper. His knee injury has kept him out since then and he is expected to be back also for 17 October.

Nabil Bentaleb

Nabil Bentaleb has had a foot and ankle injury after starting the season poorly for him. He is due to return also on 17 October.

Heung-Min Son

Of our other injured players Son Heung-min has a foot and ankle injury and it is thought he will start training again next week with a return date currently set at 22 October.

Alex Pritchard

Alex Pritchard has been troubled with his ankle and foot for a while now, it hurts when he runs on it and so his season hasn't yet started. Big things are expected of him, but whether he will need longer to heal bfore Pochettino can see him in competitive action we will have to wait and see. Currently he has a return date set as 25 October.

If you're a fit defender, pop along to Spurs will you!

8:30 am
It was only yesterday I wrote a post about Spurs needing no more injuries with Kyle Walker not being fit enough for Wednesday's international against Denmark and news that Christian Eriksen would miss the game with a bad back.

What is it with bad backs? Christian Eriksen, Vlad Chiriches and Erik Lamela, three is a bit of a coincidence. Eriksen is hopeful for Chelsea, Walker is expected to be fit as is Younes Kaboul and Lamela resumes light training in a few days.

News today however that Zeki Fryers has now withdrawn from the England Under 21 squad with an ankle injury. He was the subject of a very late and hefty challenge from behind in the first half but it's not clear when he sustained the injury. With Danny Rose also injured Spurs could do without more defenders on the sidelines.

Currently Younes Kaboul, Vlad Chiriches, Kyle Walker, Danny Rose and Zeki Fryers make the resources in defence look stretched. Danny Rose is reportedly out for another three games so it's fingers crossed the withdrawing of Fryers is a precaution, although there is of course Kyle Naughton who can deputise at left-back if Walker returns.

Assuming Walker and Kaboul are both fit, do both start and does Tim Sherwood move Vertonghen to left-back, where he won't be happy playing. A few conundrums for Sherwood to solve before Saturday.

The bright light for Spurs is the weight off Soldado's back which I wrote about yesterday. Roberto has sent a message to the loyal fans who supported him through his nightmare.

"I’m speechless. The reaction really meant a lot to me. The fans were unbelievable all the way through and my team-mates as well. They’ve really supported me throughout this period. I’m feeling really good."

Jan Vertonghen added his voice to that of Tim Sherwood and Michael Dawson who spoke after the match yesterday.

“Roberto has had some bad luck and that’s why we were all happy for him.

“We know he is doing a lot of work for us. He needed the goal. It keeps the pressure off him.”

Vertonghen also confirmed that it is not Liverpool who may be caught for fourth:

"It is not just Liverpool we are chasing; I think there are other teams who can drop down. We are just watching fourth place - it does not matter who we catch."

That will need at least a draw at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

What was he doing on a motorbike?

8:13 pm
Firstly, I would like to wish Carlo a speedy recovery.

Right, now that I've got that out of the way, I would like to ask what our keeper was doing on a motorbike? I only ask, because after researching the accident rate (you can find that here in the Department of Transport In Depth Study of Motorcycle Accidents) of motorcycles, it's quite clear that all and sundry should stay well clear of them, let alone £35,000 per week professional footballers.

"Motorcyclists have an especially poor safety record when compared to other road user groups. Their killed and serious injury (KSI) rate in the UK, per million vehicle kilometres, is approximately twice that of pedal cyclists and over 16 times that of car drivers and passengers. Motorcyclists make up less than 1% of vehicle traffic but their riders suffer 14% of total deaths and serious injuries on Britain’s roads (DETR, 2000)."

Harry, if you haven't banned the players from owning motorbikes, then I think now would be the time.
