Tottenham suffer huge injury blow ahead of North London derby vs Arsenal as player ‘ruled out for the season’

Tottenham have suffered a huge injury blow just days before the North London derby.

Spurs have enjoyed a brilliant start to the new Premier League campaign under the managerial tutelage of Ange Postecoglou.

Following his appointment in the summer, he’s inspired his side to four league victories this season – notably beating Manchester United 2-0 last month.

They continued their impressive start last weekend as they scored two goals deep, deep into stoppage time to defeat Sheffield United 2-1.

Postecoglou’s charges return to league action on Sunday when they face cross-town rivals Arsenal, who also have 13 points on the board.

But the Australian boss will be without the services of Ivan Perisic for Sunday’s clash at the Emirates.

He’s expected to miss the rest of the season after suffering a serious anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury.

The Croatian is set to undergo surgery on his right knee before starting his rehabilitation in London.

The experienced Croatia international sustained the injury in non-contact training and will undergo surgery. Wishing you well in your recovery, Ivan.”

Perisic swung in an inviting corner to set up Richarlison as Spurs secured three league points against Sheff United.

He’s played five league games this season.

The 34-year-old signed for Spurs from Inter Milan in 2022, penning a two-year deal. His contract is set to expire next July.
