Emerson Royal unlikely to feature for Tottenham Hotspur against Newcastle United due to international duty with Brazil

According to football.london, Tottenham Hotspur are likely to be without Emerson Royal for their clash against Newcastle United post the international break due to international duty with Brazil.

The full-back signed for the North London outfit earlier this summer and has already made nine appearances for the club this season, including starting a couple of Premier League games.

The 22-year-old was on show last weekend as well when Spurs picked up their first victory after a month against Aston Villa, thanks to a goal from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and an own goal by Matt Targett.

Although Emerson has had to fight for a place in the starting lineup with the likes of Japhet Tanganga and Matt Doherty, he could nail down a starting spot if he continues his good form.

However, he might now miss out on a spot against Newcastle United on the 17th of October due to his international duties with Brazil. The Samba outfit have three fixtures lined up this month against Venezuela, Colombia, and Uruguay.

The problem for Spurs is that Brazil’s last game i.e., against Uruguay, is set to be played on Friday morning i.e 15th of October. Thus, given that the player will have to travel home after that and gain some match fitness, he could be a serious doubt for that weekend.

Tottenham paid a heavy price for sending their South American stars on international duty last month after they were ruled out of 10 days to quarantine rules. However, an exception has been made this time as players returning from red-zone countries can now train and play with the team if they are fully vaccinated.

While Royal will have to maintain isolation rules, he could at least not lose out on fitness and be ready for the games after the weekend as the club are set for a heavy fixture schedule before the next international break in November.
