Tottenham in heavy blow with Cristian Romero ‘banned for four weeks as he sustained muscle injury during Chelsea draw’

TOTTENHAM defender Cristian Romero is expected to miss up to four weeks after picking up an injury in the Chelsea draw.

The Argentine helped Antonio Conte’s side to a hard-fought point at Stamford Bridge after Harry Kane equalized in added time.

But now he could be sidelined between three and four weeks due to a muscle problem, according to Football London.

This will see the South American Miss games against Wolves, Nottingham Forest, West Ham and Fulham.

He could also miss the September 10 clash with Manchester City at the Etihad.

Spurs’ group stage of the Champions League also begins early next month.

Romero’s performance on Sunday will be remembered for pulling Marc Cucurella’s hair ahead of Kane’s equalizer – a red card offense that went unpunished.

But aside from his devious play, he got on really well with Eric Dier and Ben Davies in Conte’s back three.

Now Davinson Sanchez is hoping to force his way into the squad for the upcoming clash with Wolves.

Sanchez started Tottenham’s last three games last season in which they didn’t concede a single goal and secured their place in the Champions League.

Loanee Clement Lenglet, who has not started since his loan from Barcelona, ​​is unlikely to be fit at the weekend.

Spurs meet Wolves on Saturday lunchtime and a win returns – at least temporarily – to the top of the Premier League table.

Conte’s men are currently fourth in the table behind Man City, Arsenal and Brentford.
