At this afternoon’s press conference at Hotspur Way, Ange Postecoglou gave a team news update ahead of tomorrow night’s match against Crystal Palace.
After a recent 2-0 victory against Fulham, Postecoglou’s team in North London has amassed 23 points from nine Premier League games, going undefeated in his first full season as head coach.
Arsenal hosts struggling Sheffield United, while Tottenham hosts Manchester City, who will face Manchester United, to move five points clear atop the standings.
Spurs team news vs Crystal Palace
Yves Bissouma is back in action following his one-game suspension, but he still runs the risk of receiving a one-match ban if he receives a yellow card at Palace. If this happens, he will be unable to participate in the derby against Chelsea, which will mark Mauricio Pochettino’s first visit to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium since he was fired by Daniel Levy in 2019.
Palace has struggled to score goals lately, as evidenced by their one goal in their last four Premier League games.
As per regulation, the Spurs team’s availability to the media is disclosed prior to their matchup with Roy Hodgson’s team.
The Australian disclosed that Pape Matar Sarr, who was also substituted, has recovered from a brief sickness, and that Destiny Udogie, who was substituted against Fulham, would be evaluated prior to the game.
Charlie Eccleshare, a reporter, was informed by Postecoglou that “Pape is fine – bounced back 24 hours after the game.” a little unwell, but has good training. We’re still going to evaluate destiny.
“It’s fair to say that training teeters on the brink, and Davies took a sore one after missing Fulham with a knock. Everybody else has fared well.
Pedro Porro labels one Tottenham teammate as the ‘best in the world’
Pedro Porro believes Cristian Romero, his Tottenham colleague, is the world’s top center back.
Romero, 25, has taken center stage in the new-look Tottenham defense. He is a young player with plenty of tournament experience, having won the World Cup and Copa America with Argentina.
Having scarcely made a mistake this season, the former Atalanta player and Micky van de Ven have established a dangerous partnership at the back.
The Lilywhites won 2-0 that evening thanks to the two players’ outstanding performance, which helped them maintain a clean sheet against Fulham on Monday.
Is Romero one of the best defenders in the PL?
Romero is accustomed to receiving great accolades from his fellow international players; most recently, Rodrigo de Paul and Lionel Messi named him the finest center-back in the world (Mirror).
Although some commentators, like Alejandro Moreno (ESPN FC), have mocked those allegations, Porro undoubtedly concurs with them.
“Best in the world,” the Tottenham right-back wrote in response to Romero’s Instagram picture. Mi cutieeeeiiii!
