Tottenham manager gives updates on injuries

“Skippy picked up a small knock in training, so he’ll miss this weekend,” Postecoglou said at his press conference on Friday.

“Pedro and Richy both trained all week, so both are available.”

Moreover, Destiny Udogie is unable to attend the play because he recently had quadriceps surgery. He is out for the rest of the current season. This is a big loss for Tottenham, with Udogie making 28 Premier League appearances this season and playing a crucial role in Postecoglou’s system from left-back, and the Italian will play no part at Euro 2024 this summer, which is a blow to Udogie.

“From the last game, disappointing one for Destiny, for ourselves as well because he’s been a big part of our year,” Postecoglou said.

“It was an unfortunate incident in training; he’s had the operation; it’s gone well, and hopefully he’s in time for pre-season to get back into it.”

Tottenham will look to defeat their bitter rivals, Arsenal, at home. The North London Derby always entertains, and we hope that this match delivers the same as its predecessors.
