Another consecutive injury occurred at Tottenham Hotspur.
On the morning of the 12th (Korean time), Tottenham, who had the 23rd round of the 2022-2023 English Premier League (EPL), defeated Leicester City 1-4 at the King Power Stadium in Leicester, England. Tottenham maintained 5th place with 39 points (12 wins, 3 draws, 8 losses).
At the beginning of the game, Tottenham led a good flow. The opening goal was scored in the 14th minute of the first half. A corner kick that came up to the goal was hit by Leicester defender Viktor Christiansen and fell right in front of Rodrigo Bentancur. Ben Tancour shook the net with just his foot. After a video review (VAR) related to offside, the centrifuge was maintained. It was a lucky goal.
However, Tottenham reversed the game by conceding consecutive goals in the 23rd minute, 25th minute and 3rd minute of extra time in the first half. Tottenham’s momentum, which was expected to win a streak, was broken in an instant. 토토사이트
Bad news occurred in the 20th minute of the second half. Starting midfielder Bentancur was injured and replaced by Pape Sar. Earlier, a scene where Bentancur’s knee seemed to be pushed was captured. Bentancur, who collapsed on the ground and had a painful expression, had to receive first aid from medical staff for about 4 minutes. Pedro Poro, who was watching from his side, even sent a sign that the match could not be resumed. Fortunately, the stretcher came in, but Bentancur got up and walked out on his own.
Tottenham are in a situation where goalkeeper Hugo Lloris and midfielder Yves Bisuma are out of the line due to injuries. It was recently reported that Lloris will need six to eight weeks to recover from knee ligament damage. He doesn’t need surgery, but he needs rehabilitation for a relatively long time. Lloris not only has a great ability to save, but also has a big impact on the squad. Backup midfielder Bisuma underwent surgery to treat a stress fracture in his left ankle.
Even after the World Cup break ended, Tottenham, who struggled with injuries such as Bentancur, Hischarlisson and Dejan Kulusevski, were once again in danger. In particular, two blanks occurred in the midfield, and manager Antonio Conte’s concerns deepened.
