Tottenham captain Ledley King made his return to action in a behind closed doors friendly against West Ham midweek.

In a squad consisting mainly of youngsters returning from loan spells after the football league season ended, King and fellow centre back Sebastien Bassong were the only two senior squad players to participate in a game where Spurs came from 2-0 down to win 3-2.

It is the first action since the 2-1 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage back in October and, after coming through the match unscathed for the full 90 minutes, is likely to be avalable for selection for the remaining fixtures against Liverpool on Sunday and Birmingham City on May 22nd.

“A strange situation” – Pochettino reveals Tottenham star picked up groin problem against Sheffield United

Mauricio Pochettino explains Tanguy Ndombele substitution in Sheffield United draw

It was another disappointing afternoon for Tottenham are they were held to a 1-1 draw by Sheffield United.

Tottenham took the lead through Son Heung-min in the 58th minute but were pegged back via a freak goal from George Baldock in the 78th minute.

Spurs tried to hit back but couldn’t get that second goal, and we ended up dropping more points in the race for the top four.

Tanguy Ndombele started the game but was eventually replaced at the start of the second half. Mauricio Pochettino was speaking after the game and claimed that the French midfielder never felt comfortable in the game (h/t Football.london).

Pochettino was then asked if the midfielder was injured, and the manager confirmed the Frenchman felt a niggle in the groin (h/t Football.london):

“We need to assess him now. I don’t know anything at this moment. He felt pain in his groin but I don’t know if that was before or during the game it happened.

“Yes, a strange situation because my feeling was that he wasn’t comfortable on the pitch but he said was ok during the game.”

The manager added that the doctor told him that Ndombele could not continue after the break, and said that the change could have affected the team.

Ndombele needs to be fit for Spurs

The Frenchman has made a decent impact since joining from Lyon this season. Ndombele has two goals and three assists for Spurs so far and has done better than our other summer signings.

The 22-year-old has missed some games this season due to an injury and hopefully, he is not out for a long time.

Tottenham to assess three players before Sheffield United clash

Tottenham picked up an important win over Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League.

Spurs had come into the game without a win in their last four Premier League clashes, but a professional performance saw us beat the hosts 4-0.

Son Heung-min grabbed a brace in the clash while Christian Eriksen and Giovani Lo Celso also scored.

It was great to see Lo Celso finally start a game for Tottenham after his summer move. The Argentine has suffered from a hip problem in recent months but scored the opener in this game.

Our next game is against an impressive Sheffield United. The Blades have drawn with Chelsea and beaten Arsenal in the Premier League so far and will be tough opposition.

“Now we’ve finished the game we need to assess all the players now.

“We need to assess Dele, we need to assess Tanguy, we need to assess Giovani.”

The manager spoke about our tough schedule too as we were in action against Everton last weekend.

Lo Celso and Sessegnon do their bit

Tottenham haven’t seen much of Lo Celso or Ryan Sessegnon after they joined the club in the summer.

However, the pair contributed in our win over Red Star in midweek. Sessegnon came off the bench and assisted Eriksen for the fourth goal, and it will be interesting to see if they feature in our next clash.

Jan Vertonghen and Erik Lamela ruled out of Sheffield United clash

Tottenham face a tough Sheffield United clash at the weekend and will be without two players. Hugo Lloris is a long-term absentee due to his elbow injury from a few weeks back. However, Jan Vertonghen and Erik Lamela are out with hamstring injuries.

Spurs posted an update on Twitter claiming that the two players are continuing their rehab and will not feature against the Blades.

Pair missing for a while

Vertonghen and Lamela have been out of action for a while. The last game they featured in was the 5-0 win over Red Star Belgrade at home.

Lamela scored once and provided two assists in that game and took his tally to three goals and three assists for the season.

Vertonghen, for his part, missed the start of the season but eventually came back to the side. Mauricio Pochettino tried a new defensive pairing of Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez in our midweek 4-0 win over Red Star.

Giovani Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon also featured in the win over Red Star. The two players have had their injury problems since joining us but could give Mauricio Pochettino a positive selection headache for the clash against Sheffield.

It will be interesting to see what kind of team Pochettino fields against the Blades. The international break follows this weekend’s game, and a win should give us something to build on for the rest of the season.

Tottenham supporters want Ryan Sessegnon to start after featuring in Red Star game

Tottenham got back to winning ways after a couple of poor results at Merseyside. Liverpool beat us 2-1 at Anfield and we held on for a point against Everton after Son Heung-min was sent off.

The clash at Goodison will be remembered for Andre Gomes’ horror injury, but we could have won the game had Son not been sent off.

The South Korean’s red card has been rescinded, and he found the back of the net twice against Red Star Belgrade in midweek. Giovani Lo Celso started for us against the Serbians and opened the scoring in Belgrade.

Christian Eriksen rounded off the scoring and Ryan Sessegnon provided the assist for the Dane. Sessegnon had only come onto the pitch for 10 minutes and recorded his first assist in a Spurs jersey.

Tough times for Sessegnon at Tottenham

This was the second appearance for Sessegnon this season after making his debut for us against Everton. The former Fulham star has struggled with injuries since joining in the summer, and hopefully, he remains fit for the remainder of the season.

Sessegnon was played as a winger by Mauricio Pochettino in both the games, and it will be interesting to see if he stays in that position at Tottenham.

The English youngster can also play as a left-back and performed that role for Fulham in several outings. Tottenham’s next game is a home game against Sheffield United, and many Spurs fans want Sessegnon to start for us now.
