Tottenham have revealed that striker Manor Solomon has undergone surgery after damaging his knee in training, but have not given a timetable for his comeback.
When he came in for captain Son Heung-min for the final 20 minutes of last weekend’s dramatic triumph over Liverpool, the Israeli attacker impressed.
However, his start in north London will be hampered by an injury sustained in training, which means he will miss the trip to Luton and the games after the international break.
“We can confirm that Manor Solomon suffered a meniscus injury to his right knee in training this week,” the club said in a statement.
“The forward had surgery today and will begin his rehabilitation with our medical staff right away.” Manor, I wish you a swift recovery!”
The 24-year-old has made two Premier League starts this season after signing as a free agency with Tottenham in the summer, with three more appearances off the bench, and he has excelled when given opportunities by Ange Postecoglou.
Brennan Johnson, who missed the match against Liverpool, is already expected to make a comeback for Spurs against the Hatters, while others like Rodrigo Bentancur and Ryan Sessegnon appear to be on the verge of returning after the international break.
With five victories from their first seven games and just two draws heading into the second international break of the year, the Lilywhites have had one of their finest starts to a season.
When he addresses the media later today, manager Ange Postecoglou is anticipated to deliver fresh updates on injury news.
