Football London claim Ryan Sessegnon is four weeks away from making his Tottenham debut as he continues to recover from a hamstring problem – meaning his debut may come on September 14 against Crystal Palace.
Spurs have a number of injury worries, while Son Heung-min finally serves the last match of his suspension against Manchester City this weekend. Serge Aurier, Dele Alli, Juan Foyth and Ben Davies have all been injured.
Foyth only recently suffered the injury and will be out until September, while Davies has recovered but is undergoing his own pre-season after missing out earlier this summer. Aurier is ready to go and could face City this weekend.
Alli is close to returning but he may have to wait until next weekend’s clash against Newcastle. However, Spurs fans will have to wait another four weeks as England Under-21 star Sessegnon continues hamstring rehabilitation.
TBR’s view – Will Sessegnon play left-back, or left-wing?
Spurs fans are eager to see their new signings in action, but they may have to settle with seeing Giovani Lo Celso on the substitutes bench this weekend – as they look to stop Premier League champions Manchester City.
But it will be a while before Sessegnon makes his Spurs debut. It remains to be seen where Mauricio Pochettino will play Sessegnon, as Danny Rose remained at the club on the left side of defence.
It may mean that Sessegnon is used in his more natural position, on the left side of the attack.
