Tottenham’Emergency’ Richarlison, up to 6 weeks out…Arsenal-Man City match uncertain
Richarlison is expected to be out of power for up to six weeks due to an injury.
England’s ‘Football London’ reported on the 17th (Korean time), “Richallisson suffered a hamstring injury during the World Cup. According to our recent findings, he will likely miss 5-6 weeks due to the injury. Richarlisson suffered a calf injury ahead of the World Cup. I had an experience of leaving for about a month.”
Richarlison, from Brazil, entered the English Premier League (EPL) by joining Watford in the summer of 2017. He showed outstanding performance to the extent that the adaptation period was colorless, and he transferred to Everton after a year. And until his last season, he proved his mettle by leading Everton’s attack.
Tottenham Hotspur showed interest in this. Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, and Dejan Kulusevski were showing good form, but they couldn’t spend a season alone. Coach Antonio Conte, who wanted a player who could strengthen the offensive power much more than backup resources such as Lucas Moura and Brian Hill, invested 50 million pounds (approximately 79.7 billion won) to recruit Richarlison.
His performance so far isn’t bad. While playing in the front line as well as on the side, he played in 10 EPL matches and recorded 2 assists, and scored two goals in 4 European Football Association (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) matches. However, it is regrettable that he has not been able to play steadily, such as being excluded from the power for a month due to his injury.
Richarlison, who participated in the World Cup, faced injury once again. As the main striker of the Brazilian national soccer team, he played two of the three group stage matches, and participated in the round of 16 match against Korea and the quarterfinal match against Croatia. He showed good performance with 3 goals in 4 matches, but it was known that he played with an injury.
According to ‘Football London’, Richarlison played 84 minutes despite suffering a hamstring injury ahead of the match against Croatia. Richarlison, who returned to the Tottenham training ground immediately after Brazil was defeated by Croatia and was eliminated, conducted a thorough examination. And he appears to have been diagnosed with five to six weeks of recovery time. 토토사이트
It is an emergency for Tottenham. Son Heung-min is also not in 100% physical condition, and it is not easy to form a team in a tight schedule if Richarlison misses about six weeks. Tottenham will start the second half of the season in earnest, starting with the 17th round of the EPL against Brentford on the 26th.
Because there was a month-long gap due to the World Cup, the schedule is tight. After the Brentford expedition, we will face Aston Villa on the 1st of next month. Then, Crystal Palace (4th), Portsmouth (7th FA Cup), Arsenal (16th), Manchester City (20th) and Fulham (24th) have to play 5 games in January alone. In particular, Arsenal and Man City matches are very important schedules for ranking competition.
