After a couple of months of wait, the Premier League has finally restarted, with Aston Villa vs Sheffield United kicking things off in a drab 0-0 draw on Wednesday afternoon.
Manchester City then thumped Arsenal, and all eyes will now be turned to Friday, where Norwich City will play Southampton before Tottenham welcome Manchester United in London as José Mourinho faces his former team.
However, he will be doing so without Juan Foyth, who has injured his right knee in training, according to TNT Sports in his home country.
The outlet also report the club are currently looking into whether or not they need to operate.
Both Lionel Scaloni and the doctor of the Argentina national team, Daniel Martínez, have been in contact with the Spurs defender, as they are awaiting the news of what happens next.
It’s explained the national team members also spoke with medical staff at the Premier League club to exchange opinions and they will decide together between Wednesday and Friday whether or not surgery will be needed.
TNT point out that while Foyth might not fall into Mourinho’s plans, he is ‘highly regarded’ by the Argentina staff.
The outlet also speculate this could also affect his reported move to Leeds United, although that isn’t exactly the priority right now.
