“Tottenham’s Nightmare Continues: New Signing Faces Months on the Sidelines with Injury”

Manor Solomon has been declared out for at least two months by Tottenham, inflicting yet another injury blow on Ange Postecoglou.

Postecoglou has revitalised Spurs with an offensive style of play, and his team now sits second in the Premier League rankings. They are only one point behind leaders Manchester City and have yet to lose a game in the Premier League.

However, the Australian is dealing with an increasing injury list, with Solomon becoming the ninth first-team player to be absent. Since his arrival in the summer, the summer acquisition has made six appearances, including two assists in last month’s rout of Burnley.

Solomon, on the other hand, will be out for at least the next two months due to a major knee injury. The attacker has injured his medial collateral ligament and will have to spend some time in the hospital.

The nature of his injury will most likely become apparent ahead of Saturday’s trip to Luton Town. Solomon spent last season on loan at Fulham, but was forced to sit out the first three months of his time at Craven Cottage.

The attacker was sidelined due to a knee injury sustained during a behind-closed-doors encounter, which necessitated surgery. He ultimately returned after the World Cup, appearing in 24 games.

He now joins fellow newcomer Brennan Johnson, Rodrigo Bentancur, Ryan Sessegnon, Giovani Lo Celso, Bryan Gil, and Ivan Perisic on the injured list. Johnson had made a good start to his Spurs career until suffering a hamstring injury against Arsenal.

Meanwhile, Perisic sustained a catastrophic ACL injury last week that will likely keep him out for the remainder of the season. Perisic’s time at Tottenham is set to come to an end, with the club admitting he will require surgery.

“We can confirm that Ivan Perisic has an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injury in his right knee.” “The experienced Croatia international sustained the injury during non-contact training and will have surgery,” the club said in a statement.

“Ivan will then commence his rehabilitation with our medical staff and is expected to be sidelined for the remainder of the season.”

The Croatian has only appeared as a substitute this season, however he was used in every game he was available for. He joined Spurs last summer, but his contract expires at the end of the season, making it doubtful that he would return.

Meanwhile, Solomon’s setback may provide an opportunity for Gil, who is working his way back from a groyne injury. The Spaniard has lately resumed training and will now compete for a spot in Postecoglou’s team.
