“Confirmed” He’s out of Fulham match,No replacement yet for spur star who lead Tottenham to victory on last match

The international break had pretty much the perfect effect for Tottenham and Ange Postecoglou. After ending on a positive note, heading to the top of the table and staying their for the past fortnight, the manager was not able to spend time with some of his injured players but also to watch and see how those that went away fared.

After a red card at the end of a frustrating first half against Luton Town before the break it would have been easy for things to take a turn for the worse but the new feeling at the club and some immense quality helped them pull through. Even without Yves Bissouma Spurs were able to fight their way to another victory.

Now they have dropped in the table slightly and know that anything but a win will leave them behind the front runners on goal difference only. Luckily for Postecoglu he is set to strengthen his squad once more. The suspended Bissouma will be out and needs replacing for the match with Fulham on Monday, there’s a group already in place to take his spot though.

“It’s been a pretty positive international break for us.,” Postecoglou admitted to reporters before the game. “In terms of availability I’ll address the international players first. Everyone is kind of back and medical reports seem to be good so no real issues around the guys from a fitness perspective.”

This comes as a positive after both Cristian Romero and Son Heung-Min had minor injury scares whilst in action for their country. Romero was taken off for Argentina shortly after half-time in their second fixture of the break against Peru whilst Son was rested for South Korea before playing through a knock in the second half.


None of this is to be worried about for Spurs though as the Australian manager added: “Gio Lo Celso played for Argentina as well which was great, so those guys all came through it well. With Brennan [Johnson] he has had a good, solid couple of weeks of training which is good for him with the guys who have been left alongside [Rodrigo] Bentancur, [Bryan] Gil. They’re all good.
