The most recent two weeks have not gone well for the Tottenham Hotspur fans as the North London side faced two consecutive thrashings, initially in the hands of London rival West Ham United in Carabo Cup where they wasted a 2-0 lead to lose the match 3-2 at Wembley and later 1-0 misfortune at Old Trafford against Manchester United in the league in the weekend.
What’s more, now rubbing salt to their problem, another enormous blow could fall in their face as, as per reports, their star midfielder Victor Wanyama could miss the rest of the season because of a knee injury.
Spurs recently gave an update on their star midfielder last Friday, when they indicated that they are doing their best to tackle the midfielder’s damage issue.
The club said in a tweet: “Victor Wanyama is receiving treatment and continuing to go through rehabilitation, following up with a specialist next week”
But, now if a report from Dailymail’s is to be trusted, it can be said that Wanyama’s season could be over.
The Kenyan captain has been restricted to just two match starts for Tottenham this season, one in their defeat to Chelsea at Wembley and another substitute appearance against Newcastle.
Manager Pochettino also expressed his worry over the midfielder’s accessibility recently while discussing the issue and recommended that things are not taking a good shape right now as he is yet to get a report of the arrival date of the player.
“We are concerned about his situation,” he told reporters. “We must wait for when he sees the specialist and then we’ll see what happens.
“But of course after some time without him involved in the training sessions and with the team, we are concerned. But now we need to wait next week to have a more clear idea of what’s going on.”
Wanyama was a key member from Mauricio Pochettino’s solid midfield position of last season. Playing from the deep spot of midfield, he gave his team’s back four more solidness and helped his group to keep the best defensive record in the league where they conceded just 26 goals in 38 Premier League matches.
In his nonattendance, youth Harry Winks has got minutes under his belt, but missing a star player for whatever remains of the season could turn out to be a huge blow for Spurs.
