Another blow for Tottenham: Star player is now a doubt for the Arsenal game

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham Hotspur faced a significant setback as left-back Destiny Udogie confirmed his unavailability for the remainder of the season due to injury.

The blow was compounded by doubts surrounding the availability of right-back Pedro Porro for the upcoming clash against Arsenal.

Club insider Paul O’Keefe provided insights into Porro’s situation, indicating that the Spaniard would undergo assessment by the club’s medical staff with hope that he will be ready for the Arsenal game.

In response to a question about Porro’s availability, he said:

“Assessing. They are hopeful he makes Arsenal.”

Absence of Porro and Udogie a major blow for Tottenham

The absence of Udogie and the potential unavailability of Porro come as a major blow to Spurs, as both full-backs play pivotal roles in Ange Postecoglou’s tactical setup.

With Tottenham currently sitting in 5th place, just 3 points adrift of the top four with a game in hand, the timing of these injuries couldn’t be more challenging.

As Spurs brace themselves for crucial fixtures against Arsenal, Chelsea, and Liverpool, Postecoglou faces a daunting task of navigating through these tough encounters successfully, specially in light of the injury setbacks.

Ange will need Emerson Royal and Ben Davies to step up in the absence of the Udogie and Porro as he will hope to overcome the recent setbacks and keep the top 4 hopes alive.
