Tottenham injury news as Ange Postecoglou handed double injury blow in Spurs’ 4-1 Premier League defeat to Chelsea.

With a 4-1 home loss to Chelsea on Monday night, Tottenham Hotspur’s perfect start to the Premier League season came to an abrupt halt.

Dejan Kulusevski’s shot bounced off Levi Colwill’s back to give Spurs an early lead. But then a flurry of uncontrollable incidents flipped the game upside down.

Before Chelsea was given a penalty after Cristian Romero fouled Enzo Fernandez, they had two goals disallowed. Cole Palmer leveled the score from the spot after the defender was sent off for the tackle.

Micky van de Ven and James Maddison go off against Chelsea

With a hat-trick in the second half, Nicolas Jackson was the player of the match, but Ange Postecoglou’s team was cheered by their fans as they continued to play despite losing Destiny Udogie to a red card.

Spurs suffered a double injury blow at halftime when James Maddison and Micky Van de Ven were forced out due to injuries. This was not just their first loss of the season.

Just before Maddison was hauled off due to an ankle injury, Van de Ven pulled up with a hamstring strain. This week, worries will increase in advance of Saturday’s midday match at Wolves.

Postecoglou gave an update on the two summer additions following the game. “He [Maddison] got a knock on the ankle,” he stated. “We had already lost one man. At that time, it was reasonable to make a few adjustments.”
Postecoglou went on to say of Van de Ven, “It’s too early. You would think Micky would be out for a little bit because it’s a pretty big one.”

Due to their red cards, Cristian Romero and Udogie will also be absent for Spurs’ trip to Molineux. Ben Davies, a left-back, might also sit out the encounter after missing the matchday squad on Monday.

Postecoglou may be without eight players this weekend due to the long-term absences of Ivan Perisic, Manor Solomon, and Ryan Sessegnon.
