“Spurs have the squad to cope with an injury like that now,” Ex-Spurs man expects them to cope with injury to key man
By Bruce Grove -

Tottenham had one of the most successful transfer windows in the summer as the Lilywhites plan to end this season with a trophy.

Jose Mourinho inherited a quality squad most of whom had reached the Champions League final last year, yet he was backed to bring in even more players.

Spurs now have at least two top players who can play in the same position in their team, making the competition for a place very tough.

As the team flies high in the Premier League and other competitions, injury to key players might affect them, but their squad depth in this campaign shouldn’t make that a problem.

The Lilywhites have lost Tanguy Ndombele to an injury that forced him to miss the north London derby.

It is believed to be a minor injury problem, but no one knows how soon it will be before he is back in the starting XI.

He has been a top player for the club this season and he will be missed, but Paul Robinson expects other players to step up in his absence.

“Spurs have the squad to cope with an injury like that now,” he told Football Insider.

“This season they have got strength in depth in all areas.

“Ndombele has been outstanding this season and a key part of the success enjoyed so far. He has reached another level, the level we expected of him when he first came in.

“He will be a big miss if he is out for a length of time but Jose Mourinho has the players to cope with it.

“Lo Celso started on Sunday but they have also got Harry Winks who can play in that role. The squad is very balanced.

“Yes, Ndombele will be missed from the starting eleven but there are players who are more than capable of coming in and doing a job.”

We would hopefully be okay against Palace at the weekend but need N’Dombele back for the midweek game away at Liverpool.
