Under Ange Postecoglou’s direction, Spurs have had a fantastic start to the 2017 Premier League season.
Since being hired in the summer, he has led his team to four league triumphs this year, most notably a 2-0 victory over Manchester United last month.
They maintained their strong start last weekend, defeating Sheffield United 2-1 thanks to two goals scored in stoppage time.
On Sunday, Postecoglou’s squad will meet cross-town rivals Arsenal, who have 13 points as well, in league play.
Ivan Perisic won’t be available to the Australian manager for the match on Sunday at the Emirates.
After suffering a severe anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury, he is anticipated to miss the remainder of the season.
Before beginning his recovery in London, the Croatian will have surgery on his right knee.
Spurs broke the devastating news about Perisic on social media.
We can confirm that Ivan Perisic has a complex anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury in his right knee, according to the statement on X.
“The seasoned Croatian international will have surgery after suffering the injury during non-contact training. Ivan, best of luck with your recovery.
Richarlison was set up by Perisic’s inviting corner as Spurs defeated Sheff United to earn three points in the league.
This year, he has participated in five league games.
The 34-year-old signed a two-year contract with Spurs in 2022 after leaving Inter Milan. Next July, his contract is due to expire.
