Spurs: Alasdair Gold relays teasing Cristian Romero injury update

Alasdair Gold has dropped a teasing injury update concerning Tottenham Hotspur centre-back Cristian Romero.

What’s the latest?

In a recent article for football.london, the Tottenham Hotspur correspondent relayed the comments of Antonio Conte regarding the hip injury sustained by the 24-year-old, in which the Italian stated, despite the fact reports have suggested the Argentina international will be sidelined for the remainder of the season, Romero is desperate to get himself fit before Spurs’ final game of the season against Norwich City on Sunday.

In his piece, Gold wrote: “Cristian Romero will miss out on the [Burnley] match with his hip injury and while Conte does not believe the Argentine will return this season, the Spurs boss has stated that the defender is desperate to be fit for the final match at Norwich.”

Supporters will love Conte’s claim

While, at present, it would appear extremely unlikely that Romero will be back in time to face the Canaries this weekend, considering just how important the fixture is in Tottenham’s bid to secure a top-four finish in the league this season, the suggestion that there is a chance the centre-back could feature at Carrow Road on Sunday is sure to be an update Spurs fans will love.

Do you think Newcastle will get a result against Arsenal tonight?

Yes

Indeed, following his £42.5m arrival in north London last August, the £60m-rated defender has been imperious in the Tottenham back three over his 22 Premier League appearances, helping his side keep five clean sheets, as well as making an average of 1.5 interceptions, 2.8 tackles, 3.3 clearances, 51.9 passes and winning 5.9 duels – at a success rate of 62% – per game.

These returns have seen the £31k-per-week centre-back average an extremely impressive SofaScore match rating of 7.15, ranking him as Conte’s joint fourth-best performer in the top flight of English football.

A truly wasted talent...

As such, should the 24-year-old be successful in his attempt to make it back for the Norwich fixture this weekend, it is clear to see that the Argentine’s return would come as a huge boost to Tottenham’s chances of leaving Carrow Road with all three points in tow – something that could well prove to be enough to secure Champions League football next season should Arsenal fail to win at Newcastle United this evening.
