Tottenham faces double injury setback as two key players miss training

Pedro Porro and Destiny Udogie were absent from training on Thursday ahead of Tottenham’s Premier League clash with Wolves. The two defenders had played a crucial role in the team’s recent win against Brighton & Hove Albion, but Udogie had to leave the game due to injury in the 80th minute. Udogie has made 21 appearances this season, scoring twice, while Porro has appeared 23 times and contributed eight assists in the Premier League.

Postecoglou initially downplayed any new injury concerns after the Brighton match, but the extent of the issue might be worse than initially thought. Moreover, Tottenham has been struggling defensively, conceding in every Premier League game since mid-December. With Porro and Udogie unavailable, there may be an opportunity for other players such as Radu Dragusin, Ben Davies, and Emerson Royal to step in and fill the defensive gaps.

Postecoglou has praised both Udogie and Porro for their contributions, highlighting Udogie’s outstanding attributes and Porro’s exceptional performance. Micah Richards also commended the two players for their performance in a previous game, emphasizing the impact they have on the team’s attacking play. Tottenham’s match against Wolverhampton Wanderers is scheduled for Saturday, with live coverage available on BBC Radio 5 Live.
