Tottenham boss Ryan Mason provides injury update ahead of Sheffield United clash
Speaking in a press conference (h/t Football.london), Tottenham Hotspur interim manager Ryan Mason has issued an update on the condition of his squad ahead of the Premier League contest against Sheffield United.
Tottenham will be in action for the first time since the Carabao Cup final defeat last weekend when they take on the already-relegated Sheffield United at home on Sunday evening.
With the race for the top four going down to the wire, it is imperative that Tottenham bag all three points against Paul Heckingbottom’s Blades if we are to stay alive in the battle.
However, heading into the game, Tottenham will once again have to deal with the absence of seasoned campaigner Ben Davies. The Welshman picked up a calf injury during the clash against Aston Villa in March just before the international break and hasn’t featured since.
And, Mason has confirmed that the Tottenham defender will not be available for selection on Sunday when Sheffield United come visiting either. (h/t Football.london)
“Same as last week, just Ben Davies out now.”
Mason also provided an update on the condition of star striker Harry Kane. The 27-year-old had picked up an ankle injury and missed out last league game against Southampton. However, he did return to the cup final where he looked off colour. Mason, though, insisted that the England captain was fully fit. (h/t Football.london)
“Harry was fine in terms of his injury. He was disappointed like all of us. Harry is a top professional, like the group are.”

Having Davies would have been useful in the run-in period due to his experience and the fact that Sergio Reguilon seems to have gone off the boil of late. But it is also reassuring to know that Kane is fit and there are no other fresh injury concerns.
