Tottenham: Insider drops Ben Davies injury concern

Tottenham: Insider drops Ben Davies injury concern -Reaction

Tottenham insider John Wenham has admitted he is ‘concerned’ over an international break injury to Ben Davies, as per Football Insider.

The Lowdown: Davies’ Wales withdrawal

Davies has been a regular at centre-back since Antonio Conte took over in north London, failing to feature in just one of Spurs’ last 20 Premier League games.

The 28-year-old started for Wales against Austria last week, playing the entirety of his team’s 2-1 World Cup play-off victory.

The defender even provided an assist for Gareth Bale but has since pulled out of the national squad as a precaution after feeling tightness in his thigh.

The Latest: Wenham reacts to Davies injury

Wenham was asked for his thoughts on Davies’ injury by Football Insider. He admitted that he is ‘concerned’ and claimed it would be ‘really disappointing’ if the defender were to miss domestic action as a result.

“Yeah, not good, I’m concerned.

“He’s been playing a lot in that back three, it’s been very settled in the last few weeks.

“It would be really disappointing if he was unavailable for these last few games, a blow for sure.

“They are all must-win games now and we need our top performers in there.

“Davies has been an unsung hero and no one thought he would play as much as he has this season.

“So fingers crossed he’s OK to face Newcastle at the weekend because that’s when the hard work starts.”

The Verdict: Fingers crossed

Reports have hinted that Davies is expected to be fit for the clash with Newcastle this weekend, which would be a huge boost for Conte.

However, that is yet to be confirmed, so Spurs will be sweating on the defender’s condition over the coming days as they look to put pressure on Arsenal in the race for fourth following the international break.

Will Tottenham finish in the top 4 this season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Conte is already without Japhet Tanganga for the rest of the season, and although Cristian Romero is set to return to training, Spurs won’t want to rush the Argentine straight back into the starting XI, making Davies’ availability even more important ahead of Sunday.
