‘Werner + Davies’ out for season with injuries ahead of Chelsea game

Tottenham Hotspur are in a bit of a pickle ahead of their trip to Chelsea. Timo Werner and Ben Davies have been ruled out for the season with injuries.

Tottenham announced the news via the club’s official website on Sunday (Jan. 1). “Timo Werner has been ruled out for the remainder of the season with a hamstring injury. Ben Davies has also been ruled out for the rest of the season after picking up an injury in the North London derby,” the club said.

Tottenham lost 2-3 to Arsenal in the 35th round of the 2023-24 English Premier League (EPL) on April 28 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England.

Spurs fell behind 3-0 in the first half as their defense collapsed, conceding three goals in the first half alone. Despite a second-half consolation goal from Cristian Romero and a penalty kick winner from captain Son Heung-min, Spurs were unable to find any more goals and had to settle for a North London derby defeat.

But in addition to the loss, the Spurs were dealt an injury blow. In the 31st minute, Werner limped off the field with a grip on the back of his thigh and was replaced by Brennan Johnson, who was unable to continue. In the 43rd minute, Davies was replaced by Giovani Lo Celso, and after the game, news of Davies’ calf injury confirmed that both players were out for the season.

It’s a huge blow at a crucial time for Spurs. Spurs are currently in a tight UEFA Champions League qualification battle with fourth-place Aston Villa. The fifth-place Spurs have 18 wins, six draws, and nine losses (60 points), seven points behind Villa, who have played two fewer games. The loss to Arsenal made it impossible for them to catch up and move into fourth place on their own.

In such a situation, the team’s left flank has been hit by injuries. The loss of Davies in particular is a big problem. Spurs are now without a fullback on the left side of the 토토사이트 pitch. With the loss of Destiny Udogie, who is already out for the season due to injury, and Davies as a backup, the situation has become critical.

The loss of Werner, a left-sided attacking midfielder, further deepened Tottenham’s problems on the left. Son Heung-min has been playing as a frontline striker of late, but Werner’s absence could force him back to his natural position of left winger. It’s also likely that the injured Roberto Firmino will start up top.

Meanwhile, Tottenham will next travel to Chelsea on March 3 at 3:30 am.
