Tottenham to assess Argentina star Cristian Romero’s injury before Fulham clash

Cristian Romero is apparently a doubt for Tottenham Hotspur’s clash against Fulham after the international break.

The Argentina international unsurprisingly started for his nation when they faced Peru on 18 October in Lima. He was at the end of a rash challenge from Peru’s Paolo Guerrero.

But he played on. He was, however, substituted shortly after the start of the second half. He was evidently in discomfort and there is no certain update on the nature and extent of the injury but it seems to be an issue with his right ankle.

According to Football.London, Spurs will assess the 25-year-old’s injury before the game against Fulham. Thankfully, the former Juventus star will have more recovery time with the game taking place on Monday night.

Romero out vs Fulham?

Romero is arguably one of our most important players. He is as important to our team as James Maddison or Son Heung-min because of the quality he brings to the backline.

Micky van de Ven had a pretty good international break, meanwhile, and should be in contention to start once again. The 22-year-old has taken a lot of burden away from Romero.

Eric Dier and Davinson Sanchez are available as backup options but no Spurs fan needs a reminder that the duo are evidently out of favour under Ange Postecoglou. Hopefully, Romero is fit enough to play against Fulham.

If not, it is best not to risk him. No Premier League match is easy but Fulham are one team fans will expect Spurs to win against, with or without their 2022 FIFA World Cup-winning centre-back.
