Cristian Romero’s absence tomorrow is unlikely to surprise anyone, after numerous international absences, ‘Cuti’ finally managed not to come back late, due to COVID-19 protocols, but with a serious thigh injury that – as a bare minimum – will rule him out until late February. If the surgery is plain sailing.
Giovani Lo Celso is another absentee for the 2 pm kick-off against one of the Premier League’s strugglers. This Argentinian has a knee injury and the Premier League Injuries website suggest that the 25-year-old will commence training soon and perhaps be ready for our Europa Conference League game against Stade Rennais FC on the 9th of this month.
Spurs’ prospect Dane Scarlett has a suggested 25% chance of being ready for tomorrow’s clash, as he recovers from a foot/ankle injury.
As for our visitors, Christoph Zimmerman has been ruled out ‘for several weeks, ever since his own ankle/foot injury incurred in late October.
Milot Rashica remains out due to his groin/hip/pelvic injury. Todd Cantwell is back from a brief flirtation with COVID-19, and that’s definitely one for us to watch, in my view.
