Tottenham injury update: Timo Werner, Ben Davies and Destiny Udogie latest return dates

May 3rd, 2024

Tottenham’s season is on the verge of unravelling.

While it has broadly been a productive first season for Ange Postecoglou, Thursday night’s loss to Chelsea made it three consecutive defeats.

It leaves Spurs seven points behind Aston Villa in pursuit of a top-four berth, with one game in hand.

Still, they now have a mountain to climb if they are to secure Champions League qualification and injuries have not made things easy.

Here’s everything you need to know about the latest on Tottenham injuries

Ben Davies was primed to replace Destiny Udogie at left-back but will miss the rest of the season after suffering a calf injury during the defeat to Arsenal last month.

Potential return date: Summer 2024

Timo Werner

Like Davies, Werner was injured against the Gunners and will not play again this season. Given he is only on loan from RB Leizpig, the German may have played his final game for Spurs – albeit there is an option to make the deal into a permanent arrangement.

Destiny Udogie

Udogie will also miss the rest of the season with an unspecified injury.

The Italian left-back, who has enjoyed an excellent first season at Spurs, confirmed he had undergone surgery in a post on Instagram.

Postecoglou expanded on the issue during his pre-Arsenal press conference, saying Udogie’s surgery had gone well after an “unfortunate incident” in training that is expected to see him miss this summer’s European Championship with Italy as well as the rest of the domestic campaign.

“It was non-contact. He just went to have a strike at goal by himself and got the injury,” Postecoglou said.

Spurs will hope Udogie can return to fitness in time for pre-season in the summer.

Manor Solomon

Solomon has endured an injury-hit first season at Tottenham, having played just 198 minutes of football in total and undergone initial surgery on a knee problem back in September.

However, the winger did not recover sufficiently and needed another procedure in March that is expected to keep him out for the remainder of the season.

“Lately I’ve been away from social media and focusing solely on my rehab and getting back on the field,” he said at the time. “The last period has been the most difficult and frustrating in my career.

“In the past 5 months I’ve been working as hard as possible to get back to doing what I love the most, but unfortunately, I haven’t fully recovered yet. At the same time, I’m full of motivation and will continue to do everything in order to be back stronger than ever to help my club & country.

“Thank you for your support, see you guys soon.”

Potential return date: Summer 2024

Fraser Forster

Guglielmo Vicario’s back-up has been unavailable since sustaining a foot fracture in training in mid-February.

He is unlikely to be in a position to return this season as third-choice goalkeeper Brandon Austin continues to provide cover for Vicario.

Ryan Sessegnon

Sessegnon will hope his latest surgery performed in February will finally rid him of the chronic hamstring problems that have hampered his career over recent years.

The 23-year-old underwent an operation on his right hamstring following an Under-21 game, having also had surgery on his left hamstring last year.

Like Solomon and Forster, Postecoglou has said that he does not realistically expect Sessegnon to return to action this season.
