Tottenham were already feeling the pressure of having limited forward options off the bench, and unfortunately, they will be heading into the next 2-3 months without another. The club confirmed left-winger Manor Solomon tore his meniscus in training before the trip to Luton Town on October 7th.

Solomon already underwent surgery to repair his torn ligament. He tweeted, “Not an easy one to take for me personally, but I’ve already started my rehabilitation in order to come back as soon as possible and stronger than ever.”

Tottenham are already without Ivan Perisic, who tore his ACL and is likely out for the season, and Brennan Johnson. Manager Ange Postecoglou said Johnson is close to returning to full fitness, though.

The good news is Tottenham avoided losing Solomon for the entire season. Ideally, he will be back by January and ready to pick up where he left off. He had started the season brightly, assisting two of Son Heung-Min’s three goals in the 5-2 win at Burnley. Spurs are also boosted by Bryan Gil and Giovani Lo Celso’s return to the team following lengthy injury spells.

It is speculated academy player Jamie Donley will join the senior squad in the absence of Solomon. Donley has been flying for the U-21 team, scoring 5 goals and 7 assists across all contests so far this season.
