21-year-old Tottenham ace deemed a doubt for Premier League opener

Tottenham youngster Ryan Sessegnon deemed “touch and go” for the Manchester City fixture

A report from football.london provides the latest on the fitness of Tottenham Hotspur youngster, Ryan Sessegnon ahead of the Premier League opener vs Manchester City next month. The good news for Tottenham fans is that the player is back on the training pitch with the club’s medical staff.

However, it is expected for him to take seven to ten days for a return to full training. Nuno Espirito Santo will have to take a late call regarding the player’s availability in their game against the defending league champions on gameweek 1.

So far, Sessegnon has missed Tottenham’s all three pre-season friendlies due to a minor hamstring injury (h/t football.london). The player returned to N17 this summer after a loan spell at 1899 Hoffenheim. 

Is Ryan Sessegnon an important piece in Nuno’s system?

Sessegnon burst onto the Tottenham scene after he assisted a goal in the club’s UEFA Champions League game against Red Star Belgrade. He then went on to score his first Champions goal for the club against Bayern Munich.

The player is known for being an attack-minded fullback as he has played down the entirety of the left flank in his career. During his at Craven Cottage, he scored 20 goals and raked in 9 assists in 71 Championship appearances. 

Hence, he could prove to be a vital player for Spurs’ new boss. During his Wolves days, Nuno’s go-to formation was one with three centre-backs and wing-backs. In that system, the full-backs can assume more attacking license due to the solidity given to them by an added centre-back.

If Nuno persists with that system at Spurs, of which there are no indications yet, Sessegnon could show his true potential as a fullback. 

Competition at Left-back

With 23 Bundesliga appearances in his pocket to add to his time in the Championship, the 21-year-old could be ready for a first-team spot. However, the competition at Spurs for the left-back spot is healthy.
