Ben Davies, a defender for Tottenham Hotspur, may miss four to six weeks due to injury, according to Alasdair Gold.
Since Micky van de Ven sustained a hamstring injury against Chelsea in early November, Ben Davies has been a regular in the Tottenham team.
In the Dutchman’s absence, the 30-year-old has been a constant, playing with Cristian Romero and Emerson Royal.
Over the last few months, Davies has performed admirably to keep Spurs within a hair’s breadth outside of the top four.
Nevertheless, during last Friday’s 1-0 FA Cup victory over Burnley, the £10 million player suffered a hamstring injury.
Additionally, it appears that Angel Postecoglou may be sidelined for a while, dealing him yet another blow to his injury record.
Davies could be out for six weeks
In his most recent video on YouTube, Gold provided an update regarding Davies’ ailment.
The Football.London reporter stated, “Ben Davies, from what I understand, four to six weeks is the kind of timeframe they’re looking at.”
However, I would argue that Ben Davies recovers from his previous problems really quickly. As a result, I have no doubt that he will want to return sooner rather than later.
Van van Ven was added back to the matchday roster on Friday, but he hasn’t played a minute since his injury.
With Davies out, Postecoglou will benefit greatly from the Dutchman’s return ahead of Sunday’s trip to Old Trafford.
Cristian Romero, who hurt his hamstring during the team’s 2-1 victory against Everton last month, is also a candidate to play sooner rather than later.
Additionally, Tottenham is ready to finalize a deal for Radu Dragusin shortly, which should increase Postecoglou’s options at the position.
‘Incredible physicality’: Cristian Stellini raves about £20m Tottenham ace but his attitude upset Postecoglou
In advance of Djed Spence’s anticipated loan transfer to Genoa, Cristian Stellini has rendered his judgment on the Tottenham Hotspur defender.
Radu Dragusin is about to sign with the Spurs today. According to reports, the Romanian completed his medical and will go in the opposite way on loan till the end of this season if his signing becomes official.
Cristian Stellini praises Tottenham’s Djed Spence
Cristian Stellini worked for Tottenham for over 17 months, first as Antonio Conte’s assistant and then as the team’s interim manager.
The 49-year-old has more knowledge of Spurs players than any of us, but the fans won’t remember him favorably due to the way things worked out under his leadership.
In response to rumours that Djed Spence, the 23-year-old Tottenham defender, is expected to sign a loan with Genoa until the end of the season as part of the Radu Dragusin trade, Stellini was called by Buon Calcio A Tutti in Italy.
Although Spence is a gifted player with amazing speed, explosiveness, and toughness, the Italian said there is still much space for improvement, particularly in attack.
Spence is a very reserved and courteous youngster, according to Stellini. He is extremely quiet, extremely explosive, and extremely fast. There are a lot of these physically gifted players in the English league.
“At the age of 23, he still has a lot of room for growth, particularly in the closing stages of the game—both in terms of finishing and providing assists. He must undoubtedly mature, or else he wouldn’t be so young.
However, he is a player with amazing physicality and superb technical skill for close play. He can be deadly at any pace or from a stop. He once took a step too far in his category when he joined Tottenham, a very good team, after winning a Serie B championship with Nottingham Forrest.
“Genoa is a good place for him to show off his talent.”
Ange Postecoglou was annoyed with Spence’s attitude
In the summer of 2022, Djed Spence signed a £20 million contract to join Tottenham from Middlesbrough (Sky Sports).
The skilled full-back was being courted by many elite teams, but Daniel Levy prevailed over them all to sign him.
Spence has only played 41 minutes of senior football for Tottenham, and he has already had two loan stints out. He’s about to spend his third stint at Genoa instead of Spurs.
He hasn’t been given a chance by Spurs manager Ange Postecoglou since the full-back didn’t impress him during the preseason.
According to The Evening Standard, Spence had trouble being on time and didn’t exhibit the proper demeanor. That made the choice to allow him to depart this month very simple.
