Team news | Brighton vs Spurs | Romero out for a number of weeks

Wed 27 December 2023, 11:00|Tottenham Hotspur

Ange Postecoglou has a fresh injury concern with vice captain Cristian Romero set to be sidelined for the next 'four or five weeks'.

Our number 17, who was forced off at half-time in our 2-1 win over Everton on Saturday with a hamstring issue, was pictured during the second period sitting with an ice pack under his leg.

And, after a scan this week, Ange has confirmed that the defender has picked up a hamstring strain that will see him sidelined for at least the next month.

"No, no. He's no good. He's had a scan, so he'll be out for four or five weeks," Ange confirmed. "Everyone else got through it okay. There's a few sore bodies there but we've had a, sort of, easier training week, last few days anyway, but everyone else is okay."

One player who will be a new option for Ange Postecoglou though is Destiny Udogie, who is available for selection once again after completing his one-match ban.

James Maddison, Ivan Perisic, Ryan Sessegnon, Manor Solomon, Rodrigo Bentancur and Micky van de Ven are long-term absentees and remain out of action.

Ange had an update on Micky here...
