Sergio Reguilon likely out of action for three weeks due to injury setback

Tottenham could go without Sergio Reguilon for the next three weeks after the full-back suffered a muscle injury, ahead of a game-packed month.

Reguilon joined Spurs from Real Madrid in September 2020 and proved to be an instant hit in north London, making 20 appearances in all competitions and participating with five assists.

The left-back has helped Jose Mourinho’s side tackle a challenge in the top four this season, and they have the opportunity to return to the Champions League on Thursday when they host Liverpool.

However, according to the Evening Standard, Spurs will be without Reguilon for Thursday night’s clash with the Spaniard being sidelined with a muscle injury.

Having been an unused sub for Spurs’ FA Cup victory over Wycombe the last time around, Reguilon underwent a scan on Wednesday to determine the severity of his injury. The verdict is that he is expected to be out for the next three weeks, missing not only the clash against Liverpool’s top four rivals, but also Spurs’ trip to Brighton, Chelsea’s visit, the fifth round game of the FA Cup with Everton and February. Premier League match against Manchester City.

Spurs could be running out of left-back options for their meeting with Liverpool, after Ben Davies was forced out of the second half against Wycombe with a blow. However, it is hoped that the Welshman will be deemed fit to face Jurgen Klopp’s side.

If Davies were not available, Mourinho could call on center-back Japhet Tanganga, who featured at Spurs left-back last season.

Asked about the fitness of Davies and his fellow full-back Matt Doherty ahead of the Liverpool clash, Mourinho hinted there were other injury issues within the squad.

“Yeah, and we’ve got more issues than I’m not going to share,” said the Tottenham boss. “You have to wait until tomorrow but we have a few more problems than that.”
