Dejan Kulusevski injured in Tottenham vs Brighton as Ange Postecoglou provides update

In the aftermath of Tottenham’s disappointing 4-2 loss to Brighton, manager Ange Postecoglou provided an update on Dejan Kulusevski and his condition. While the winger appeared to be okay, Postecoglou acknowledged that checks were still underway to ensure his well-being.

The match at the Amex Stadium saw Kulusevski involved in a significant incident, conceding a penalty in the first half with a challenge that resulted in a spot-kick for Brighton. Additionally, the Swede received his fifth yellow card of the season during the game, leading to a suspension for the upcoming clash against Bournemouth.

Despite facing challenges, Kulusevski displayed resilience, enduring a rough tackle from Brighton’s Lewis Dunk in the 82nd minute. Dunk received only a caution for the challenge, and Kulusevski continued to play until the final whistle.

In response to questions about Kulusevski‘s condition, Postecoglou offered reassurance and here is what he had to say via football.london:

“I think so. We’re checking him out.”

With Deki set to miss the clash against Bournemouth due to suspension, the intervening period provides an opportunity for him to recover fully. The international break and the subsequent match against Burnley on January 5th offer a timeline for the winger to regain full fitness.

Despite the suspension setback and the physical challenges faced during the Brighton game, Kulusevski’s overall well-being remains a priority for Tottenham.

The fortunate aspect is that Kulusevski seems to have escaped more severe consequences from Dunk’s rather reckless challenge.
