The news of another injury in Tottenham’s match against Leicester City (Leicester) made me nervous.
Tottenham is in the middle of the 23rd round of the 2022-2023 season Premier League against Leicester at King Power Stadium in Leicester, England at 12:00 am (Korean time) on the 12th. 안전놀이터
Tottenham took the lead with Rodrigo Bentancur’s goal in the 14th minute, but Nanfalis Mendy (23rd minute), James Madison (25th minute), and Kelechi Iheanacho (1st half extra time) conceded a series of goals and were drawn 1-3. .
Even the adverse circumstances that allowed a reversal overlapped. In the 15th minute of the second half, Bentancur grabbed his knee and collapsed in the process of competing for the ball with the opponent. After checking his condition, his colleagues around him sent a replacement sign to the bench, and a medical staff and stretcher were put in.
Later, Pape Matar Sar was substituted and fortunately, Bentancur got up and left the field.
However, Tottenham cannot be relieved. While goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was virtually out of the season with a knee injury after the last Manchester City game, Yves Bisuma was on the operating table midweek with a stress fracture.
In a tight schedule, a deep sigh at the news of consecutive players’ injuries, and if the team’s main midfielder Bentankur leaves, the player base in the midfield will become even thinner.
Moreover, the upcoming European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League round of 16 first leg schedule is a problem. Serie A ‘defending champion’ AC Mila ahead of the confrontation, Pierre-Emile Hoivier is absent due to disciplinary action. Here, Bentancur also has to wait and see the results, so in the worst case, it has to digest the schedule without the main midfield line.
