Spurs v Wolves - team news
Fri 14 May 2021, 14:30|Tottenham Hotspur
Ben Davies remains sidelined for Sunday’s visit of Wolves and Ryan Mason has conceded he’ll 'be surprised' if the Welsh defender is back before the end of the season.
The full-back has been troubled by a calf issue since mid-March - his last appearance now seven weeks ago at Villa on 21 March - and time is running out for him to return with only three Premier League fixtures remaining against Wolves on Sunday (2.05pm), Villa on Wednesday (19 May, 6pm) and the finale at Leicester on Sunday week (23 May, 4.30pm).
Speaking after training on Friday, Interim Head Coach Ryan reported: “Ben is the only player who hasn’t trained (with the group), I’ll be honest, I’ll be surprised if he’s in contention for any of our remaining three fixtures."
Ryan was asked in his press conference how that might affect Ben’s involvement at this summer’s European Championships - Wales’ first game is against Switzerland in Baku on 12 June.
He responded: “Ben was out on the training pitch today doing some individual work and hopefully he’ll progress over the next few days and next week. It’s too early to make a decision on the Euros but I’m sure Ben feels confident about that. We just know because he’s been out for such a long time that it’s not realistic to expect or think that he will return to training and will be playing for us in the next 10 days.”
