Spurs’ chances of coming away from Gary O’Neil’s in-form team with three points have slimmed dramatically after Postecoglou announced the worrying new injuries.

Both Porro at right back and Udogie on the left flank are integral to the boss’ style of play.

Explaining the injuries in a press conference, Postecoglou said: “Pedro Porro picked up a strain at training. Probably a couple of weeks for him”.

Destiny Udogie picked up a knock, not too serious. Game next weekend, should be back”.

“Fraser Forster – fracture in his foot, probably a couple of months”.

The loss of Forster, whose injury is the most serious, poses less of a threat seeing as the goalie has only made one appearance all season in the Carabao Cup.

Emerson Royal is likely to replace Porro at right-back, while Ben Davies could line up on the left .

Spurs’ have no doubt had an unlucky season when it comes to injuries.
