“Worrying update” spur manager give update on Tottenham New attacker who got injured

Ange Postecoglou has delivered a worrying update on Brennan Johnson’s fitness following Tottenham’s 2-2 draw against Arsenal in the North London Derby. The Wales international had to be withdraw in the second half after suffering a hamstring injury.

Johnson was handed his first start for Spurs by Postecoglou as he lined up alongside Son Heung-min, Dejan Kulusevski and James Maddison in attack. The 22-year-old was unfortunate not to score his first goal for Tottenham after DavidRaya pulled off a stunning save to deny him in the first half.

Johnson was signed from Nottingham Forest during the summer transfer window for a fee of £47.5million. Richarlison and Manor Solomon were amongst the substitutes – with the latter coming on to replace the Welsh forward after his injury.

Cristian Romero scored an own goal to put Arsenal ahead before Son Heung-min equalised before half-time. Bukayo Saka put the Gunners back in the lead from the penalty spot, before the South Korean forward grabbed his second of the game minutes before Johnson’s injury.

Speaking after the game, Postecoglou has now provided an update on Johnson’s injury. “I’m not sure with Brennan [Johnson], he felt his hamstring,” the Spurs boss told reporters.
