Tottenham Loan Watch - September 19

Steven Caulker - Back on the Tottenham training table

Things are on the up on and up for Tottenham Hotspur. Two Liverpool red cards helped lead Tottenham to a stunning 4-0 home win over the Reds. The result lifts Tottenham into the mid-table, only three points back of fourth place with a game in hand. Things are even looking up on the injury front, as William Gallas and Sandro now seem poised to return from injury.

The loanees though are going through their own injury crisis. Most notably and sadly is the knee injury of Steven Caulker, currently on loan with Swansea City. Caulker has starred for a strong Swansea defense so far, but the injury has knocked out the defender for up to eight weeks and sent him home to Tottenham for treatment. Other players picked up injuries on the weekend too, as Nathan Byrne and Adam Smith departed hurt in their respective League 1 ties.

But some things are looking up, as Kyle Naughton put in another strong performance for a winning Norwich side and David Bentley began to establish himself at West Ham. Let's check out this week's performances:
