Injury crisis rocks Tottenham ahead of Chelsea clash, manager cries out “it’s really painful, it’s too early to say for Sunday”

Spurs face an injury crisis up front with Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn doubtful for Sunday’s home Premier League game with Chelsea.

Already without South Korea superstar Son Heung-Min, boss Nuno Espirito Santo saw two more forwards pick up injuries in tonight’s 2-2 draw at Rennes.

It means that aside from central striker Harry Kane, Spurs have just Dele Alli and Bryan Gil available in supporting roles.

And it could force Nuno to change shape yet again, having seen a midfield diamond flop against Crystal Palace last weekend.

The Spurs boss said: “It’s really painful, it’s too early to say for Sunday.

“The physios are working with them. It’s been terrible, I must be honest.

“Let’s not hide behind nothing. After the Watford game, everything that has happened has not been very good for us.

“We scored then we lost control. We played a good team who caused some problems.

“It is hard to judge the game, I think we finished well. Rennes were a hard team to play but the attitude was good.”
