Tottenham Hit Hard as Key Player Faces Extended Injury Absence

Injury Avalanche

Tottenham Hotspur's stellar start to the 2023/24 season under Ange Postecoglou has hit a roadblock, with three consecutive Premier League losses. The latest setback comes in the form of an injury to midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur, adding to the club's growing list of concerns.

Injury Blow for Bentancur

In a tough match against Aston Villa at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Bentancur suffered an ankle injury due to a rash challenge from Matty Cash. Subsequently substituted, it's now revealed by Fabrizio Romano that the Uruguayan midfielder is anticipated to be sidelined until at least 2024, following an ankle tear during the game against Unai Emery’s side. The recovery period is estimated to be around two to three months.

This is a significant setback for the 26-year-old, who had just started his first game of the 2023/24 Premier League season after an eight-month hiatus due to a knee injury sustained in the previous season.

Tottenham's Deepening Injury Crisis

Ange Postecoglou faces a mounting injury crisis, with Micky van de Ven out due to a hamstring injury sustained in the loss to Chelsea, keeping him sidelined until the end of the year. James Maddison, an inspired summer signing, has confirmed his unavailability until the new year, and Richarlison remains sidelined post-surgery. Bentancur's injury compounds the team's woes.

Bentancur, praised for his versatility earlier this year, now embarks on another recovery journey, aiming to contribute to Spurs in the second half of the campaign.
