Poor Kieran Trippier: Theory spreads explaining Tottenham’s horrendous injury problems after Crystal Palace


Crystal Palace vs Tottenham

The late match in the Premier League on Saturday saw Crystal Palace play host to Tottenham.

The big pre-match news was the absence of Wilfried Zaha for the Eagles.

In his pre-game presser on Friday, Roy Hodgson made no mention of any potential injury to Palace’s best player.

However news quickly spread that Zaha picked up a hamstring injury before the Spurs game.

After 23 minutes at Selhurst Park, Spurs were forced into a change.

Right-back Kieran Trippier was forced out of the match. He was replaced by Serge Aurier.

Why are so many Tottenham players getting injured?

The injury list at Tottenham is starting to get ridiculous.

Last weekend at Wolves, Spurs lost midfielder Mousa Dembele after six minutes with an ankle injury.

This week it was confirmed that Dembele is set to be out until the new year.

Tottenham have significant injury problems as Victor Wanyama (knee) and Eric Dier (thigh) are also on the club’s treatment table.

At the back, Jan Vertonghen is out with a thigh injury while Danny Rose has been missing with a groin problem.

Moreover, Davinson Sanchez is injured with a hamstring injury.

While Mauricio Pochettino has lost the likes of Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen in recent weeks to injury too.

So why are Spurs suffering so many injuries this season?

The theory doing the rounds on social media are that Tottenham are paying the price for their players being so successful at last summer’s World Cup finals in Russia.
