Tottenham ‘extremely nervous’ ahead of Liverpool match… “Son Heung-min and Madison, we need to watch their condition” → Johnson confirmed to be absent
He is in a state of ‘super tension’ ahead of the Liverpool game.
British media ‘The Athletic’ reported the injury situation of the Tottenham Hotspur players on the 29th (Korean time). Tottenham is preparing for the 7th round of the 2023-24 English Premier League against Liverpool on the 1st of next month.
Several players are suspected of being injured ahead of such an important game. According to the media, coach Enze Postecoglou reportedly said, “Son Heung-min and James Maddison have been training well.” The two players showed some discomfort during the North London derby against Arsenal on the 24th. Coach Postekoglou added, “We need to watch the condition of both players a little more.”토토사이트
However, Brennan Johnson’s absence was confirmed. Johnson left Nottingham and joined Tottenham ahead of this season. He is a player who can pose a threat to opponents during counterattacks with his fast speed and decent dribbling. He was brought in at the end of the transfer window, and has appeared in two Tottenham games, but has yet to score any attacking points.
Johnson, who suffered a hamstring injury in the game against Arsenal, will miss the game against Liverpool. However, Coach Postekoglou explained, “Johnson’s injury is not serious.” He is expected to be able to play again in the early future.
Meanwhile, Tottenham, who are on an undefeated streak this season, have reached their biggest challenge. This time’s opponent, Liverpool, is a team that has constantly harassed Tottenham over the past six years. Tottenham’s last victory against Liverpool was six years ago. At that time, Tottenham invited Liverpool to their home and won 4-1. Harry Kane scored multiple goals and Son Heung-min and Dele Alli scored one goal each.
Since then, they have never been able to catch Liverpool. In particular, they clashed in the final of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) in the 2018-19 season, but lost 0-2 and finished in second place.
