“Confirmed” Two key Tottenham attackers will be out of Liverpool clash

Tottenham could lineup against Liverpool without James Maddison and Brennan Johnson

Tottenham Hotspur’s upcoming clash with Liverpool on Saturday could see them facing some significant setbacks due to injuries. Brennan Johnson, the Welsh forward recently acquired by Spurs in a high-profile transfer, suffered a hamstring injury during their Sunday draw against Arsenal.

This injury forced Johnson to be substituted during the second half of the North London derby, with complaints about his hamstring. The severity of his injury is yet to be confirmed, but early reports from football.london via ECHO suggests that he could be sidelined for up to six weeks, depending on the diagnosis to be provided in the coming days.

The absence of Johnson would undoubtedly be a blow for Spurs, as they had invested around £45m in his acquisition earlier this month. His performance and contributions remained eagerly anticipated, and his injury could disrupt Tottenham’s plans.

Furthermore, Tottenham might also have to oversee another injury concern as James Maddison also saw himself forced to leave the field due to injury during the same match against Arsenal. Maddison experienced a knee issue after a challenge with Jorginho.

Injury-hit Spurs

Similar to Johnson, the extent of Maddison’s injury is still uncertain. Reports suggest that he will undergo a scan in North London this week to assess the severity of the injury. The outcome of this scan will determine his availability for the upcoming clash against Liverpool at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this weekend.

  • Injuries are an inevitable part of football, and both Tottenham and Liverpool will need to adapt to the circumstances they face. For Spurs, it’s a test of their squad depth and the ability of other players to step up in the absence of key figures.
