Tottenham Hotspur Forward Manor Solomon Suffers Serious Knee Injury
Tottenham Hotspur forward Manor Solomon has suffered a serious knee injury and is set to be out of action for at least two months. The winger injured his medial collateral ligament in training and the news is a big blow for Spurs and manager Ange Postecoglou.
Solomon’s Injury a Big Blow for Spurs
Solomon only moved to north London over the summer on a free transfer from Shakhtar Donetsk following an impressive loan spell at Fulham last season. He has made six appearances for Spurs so far, recording two assists, though he has only played 280 minutes for his new club, with Son Heung-min, Richarlison, Dejan Kulusevski and Brennan Johnson ahead of him in the pecking order.
The next two months are set to be a tough period for Spurs, with matches against Chelsea, Aston Villa, Manchester City and West Ham. Their fixture list also includes clashes with Luton, Fulham, Crystal Palace and Wolves. With Solomon out of action, Tottenham will be without one of their key players as they look to remain unbeaten in the Premier League and go top of the table.
Other Spurs Players Out Injured
Solomon’s absence is compounded by other players currently out injured. Winger Ivan Perisic has already been ruled out for the rest of the season after injuring his ACL, while goalkeeper Alfie Whiteman and midfielders Rodrigo Bentancur and Giovani Lo Celso are also out.
Tottenham Unbeaten in the League Under Postecoglou
Tottenham have enjoyed a great start to life under Postecoglou, with the club unbeaten in the Premier League after the opening seven games and currently second in the table, just a point behind Manchester City. They’ll be aiming to go top this weekend when they take on struggling Luton in the early kick-off on Saturday.
