Tottenham has been hit hard with a double injury setback ahead of their crucial title showdown against Manchester City, with a total of eight players now confirmed to be unavailable for the match.

Tottenham Hotspur has encountered a significant setback as they gear up to face Manchester City in a crucial showdown that could impact the Premier League title race. Manchester City, aware that a victory would maintain their grasp on the title heading into the last matchday, are set to clash with Spurs on Tuesday.

Manager Ange Postecoglou revealed a dual blow to his team’s fitness ahead of this pivotal match. The injury list, already burdened with six key players, now includes two more significant names, further complicating Tottenham’s preparations against the formidable City side.

Richarlison’s absence, following a recent injury and exclusion from Brazil’s Copa America squad, has been compounded by midfielder Yves Bissouma also being sidelined. These injuries add to the challenge for Spurs, who are striving to keep their faint hopes of Champions League qualification alive, although Aston Villa could shatter those aspirations with a win on Monday.

Postecoglou addressed the sentiment among some Spurs fans who may prefer their team to lose, potentially aiding Arsenal’s title bid. He dismissed this notion firmly, stating that genuine success comes from hard work, dedication, and a focus on achieving long-term goals rather than fleeting victories for rivalries’ sake. He emphasized the importance of the fans’ support, believing that those in the stadium will rally behind the team as they always have, regardless of external chatter.
