Tottenham injury crisis: Four full-backs ruled out of clash against Leicester

By Harry Sykes

Tottenham have been hit by a full-back crisis ahead of their penultimate Premier League clash of the season on Thursday night.

Spurs announced on their official Twitter account on Wednesday afternoon that right-back pair Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier both miss the trip to Leicester.

Trippier is absent with the concussion he sustained in Sunday’s 2-1 win against Manchester United, while Walker has an ankle injury.

It means that manager Mauricio Pochettino will be unable to call upon four full-backs in total for the clash at tje King Power Stadium.

Tottenham announced last week that Kyle Walker-Peters, 20, who is the club’s third right-back specialist and has trained regularly with the first-team squad this season will not be available for selection again this season after being called up to the England squad for the Under-20 World Cup.

In addition, Spurs posted a statement on Tuesday that first-choice left-back Danny Rose has undergone knee surgery and will be sidelined until next season.

Pochettino is likely to use one of his centre-backs Eric Dier or Toby Alderweireld at right-back against Leicester, as both have considerable experience of playing in that position.
