Hey remember when Spurs had healthy players?

Tottenham Hotspur may be looking ahead to June 1 (HEY DID YOU KNOW SPURS ARE IN THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINALS?????????) but there’s still one game to play before that. Tottenham have all but mathematically clinched top four and participation in the Champions League for the fourth consecutive year; all they have to do is not blow a goal differential of eight to Arsenal.

Seems easy, right? Well, we’d like to think so. But there’s the slight problem of Spurs starting to run out of players. Tottenham released their injury report yesterday and, um. Yeah.

Yiiiiiiiiiiiiiikes. Apparently the win over Ajax took a little bit more out of the team than we thought. It looks like Spurs are now without both Jan Vertonghen AND Juan Foyth, which leads to the question of just who the heck will line up beside Toby Alderweireld against the Toffees on Sunday.

The obvious answer is probably Eric Dier, with Spurs, uh, I guess figuring something out at midfield. We’ll get into the details of what that might look like in a future post.

The good news is that both Tottenham Harrys — Kane and Winks — have returned to on-field rehab, which means they aren’t far from actually returning to full training. That’s good, as most of us will feel much better with a full Harry Contingent™ available against Liverpool in Madrid.
