Tottenham failed to leap to fourth place again? Strong Fulham at home, caught in EFL Cup 2-2 draw

Tottenham will face Fulham in the 29th round of the Premier League (PL) in the 2023-24 season at Craven Cottage in London, England, at 2:30 a.m. on the 17th (Korea time). Currently, Tottenham is in fifth place with 53 points (16 wins, 5 draws, 59 losses, 39 losses, +20).

In the last game, Tottenham made the victory cry in Aston Villa’s away game. It was a more valuable victory because it was a villa that took the top spot with a completely different appearance under the leadership of Unai Emery.

However, he couldn’t rejoice despite the triumphant victory. Key center back Mickey van de Pen collapsed due to injury. Shortly after halftime, he suddenly collapsed on the ground. He had no choice but to urgently deploy Radu Dragushin.

The Telegraph reported, “Tottenham will determine the injury to Van de Pen within 24 hours. Van de Pen was scheduled to undergo a test on Tuesday, and is expected to diagnose a clearer condition. Unless surgery is required, the extent of the injury is unlikely to be confirmed until Postecoglou explains the situation himself on Friday.”

Van de Pen, who was acquired from Wolfsburg last year, formed a center-back line as Romero’s partner. He was in charge of the rear region with his fast speed. However, his chronic hamstring failed again. He missed nearly 10 games before leaving the team.

Fortunately, it does not appear to be a serious injury, but he is likely to miss this match against Fulham.

British public broadcaster BBC Chris Sutton predicted that Tottenham and Fulham would draw 2-2 during the 29th round match. Sutton said, “It is another tough game for Tottenham. The blow is especially heavy because there is no injured Van de Pen. Fulham have always been strong at home, and they have already caught Tottenham in the EFL Cup,” predicting a slugging draw.

Tottenham, desperate for a TOP4 leap, has to catch Fulham and secure three points. The center-back line is likely to be a combination of Romero and Dragosin.
