Davies and Reguilón Struggle for Tottenham
How Sergio Reguilón was injured is anyone’s guess as it was never disclosed. Tottenham had been playing so-so football following the back-to-back Liverpool and Leicester City losses but was unbeaten in four matches before Sergio was injured.
It was not so much that Davies was not playing okay football it was just the timing of the injury and the schedule. Tottenham lost four out of five matches in the Premier League and was knocked out of the FA Cup in the nearly four weeks Reguilón was out.
As Sergio came back, the two were both on the training ground for about a month before Ben Davies injured his shinbone in early April. Likely no one suspected Davies would not play again the rest of the season from the injury but that was the case.
Whereas during the critical months of January and February Davies had to carry the load alone; down the stretch in April and May, it was Reguilón’s turn to carry the burden. At one point both were out and Matt Doherty even filled in.
After returning from injury with Tottenham on a losing skid, Sergio pressed most of the rest of the season and it resulted in play not as effective we had early in the season. Likewise, all the minutes’ Davies logged early and then covering for Reguilón took its toll and surely contributed to the Welshmans’ injury.
Had Reguilón not been injured in January the season may have continued in a different direction. However, Sergio did get injured and it was a blow at a bad time for a team needing a break. ultimately, like the team it was a disappointing overall season for the pair, so what will Tottenham do moving forward?
