Tottenham forward, Richarlison out for up to a month with knee injury

Tottenham forward Richarlison will be out for “three to four weeks” with a knee injury, says boss Ange Postecoglou.

The 26-year-old Brazilian sustained the injury during Tottenham’s recent 2-1 loss to Wolves.

Richarlison has netted 10 goals in 22 Premier League appearances so far this season.

“Richy is disappointed because he’s been a key contributor, but that has been how our season has gone,” said Postecoglou.

Richarlison has scored nine of his goals in the last ten matches. Tottenham has faced injury challenges lately, with Postecoglou still missing defender Pedro Porro, and Ryan Sessegnon likely out for the remainder of the season following hamstring surgery this week.

However, there’s potential for a boost with the return of full-back Destiny Udogie, who resumed training this week.

Sitting fifth in the Premier League, five points behind fourth-placed Aston Villa, Tottenham will host Crystal Palace on Saturday.
