That's a good point too. Now I revert back to, does anyone know of he's injured?!
That's what I'm concerned about. Possible fracture.
Only for about 5 mins though.
Ok So Eriksen back, great news.
Dembele and Mason facing fitness tests on foot and knee injuries respectively so must be close.
Bentaleb still2-3 weeks away with ankle injury.
Pritchard supposedly still struggling with ankle injury picked up in summer, return date unknown.
Son out with unspecified foot injury.
Sounds a bit scary
our injury luck from last year seems to be catching up on us...
Any news or updates on Son, Pritchard, Mason, Nabil etc?
A bloke on Twitter said Son hopeful to return to training next week but unlikely to face Liverpool. Pinch of salt...
25th September :
Nabil Bentaleb, Mousa Dembele, Ryan Mason and Alex Pritchard remain sidelined for tomorrow's (Saturday, September 26, 12.45pm) huge game against Manchester City.
"All four are close, but all four are out," reported Head Coach Mauricio Pochettino after training on Friday.
Mousa has been out since picking up a foot injury against Everton on August 29, Nabil has missed our last four matches with an ankle problem, Ryan damaged his knee in scoring the winner at Sunderland on September 13 and Alex has an ankle problem
If all 4 were 'close' to a return on 25 September, you'd expect/hope all 4 to be available for the Liverpool game (Dembele of course appeared off the bench v Swansea).
For what its worth http://www.physioroom.com/news/english_premier_league/epl_injury_table.php#c19 (who tend to work off average recovery times) says :
Back for Liverpool 17 Oct - Mason, Bentaleb, Rose
Back for 22 Oct - Son
Back for 25 Oct - Pritchard
Feel so bad for Pritchard. Can't wait to see him in the team
At least these players will all be "rested".
Pritchard's had surgery - out until the new year
This is why I don't like internationals.
If Woy gets Dele injured I'll do my fucking nut.
Absolutely gutted, genuinely thought he'd be able to bring something to our squad this season.
We were a bit lucky last year, but even this year, the types of injuries sustained aren't muscular.
There'll always be a risk of ankles being twisted and various knocks happening, but muscular injuries seems to have been more or less eliminated. Which is a huge credit to conditioning work.
Seriously, fuck that u21 tournament. Pritch's season is not far from being a write off and Kane is, if not quite burnt out, then at least looking like he needs a rest.
That type of tournament should be the reserve of genuine youth players, ie players who have something to prove before reaching the top level. Pritch arguably falls into that category, but there's no way a guy scoring 20+ goals in the top flight should have had to play in it.
They should have the u21 tournament the same summer as the senior. So you have to pick which one they can enter. Will reduce burnout.
That makes too much sense for them to run it that way, arseholes.
OS official announcement
Hugely disappointing news, had hoped he would have had a few games pre-Christmas to allow him to move into becoming a genuine first team candidate.
I echo the sentiments above about the E u21's - crazy tournament for any player genuinely part of a first team squad, and particularly disappointing that the Sky 4 got most of their players released from it which meant we had to many payers involved.
One tiny glimmer of consolation with these situations it's that at least it's one less player to keep happy not getting much time on pitch
