The latest on Oliver Skipp ahead of Tottenham vs Newcastle


An injury update on Tottenham midfielder Oliver Skipp has emerged on Friday.

The young midfielder has enjoyed a superb 2021/22 to date, thrust straight into Spurs’ starting line-up at the beginning of the campaign by Nuno Espirito Santo.

And Skipp has since continued to impress and prove himself a key player for the Lilywhites. Tottenham have lost just one of the last eight Premier League games in which the youngster has featured.

However, a recent injury has since seen Skipp miss Tottenham’s last nine league ties, four of which they fell to defeat in.

This only reiterates his importance to Spurs and, as a result, Antonio Conte and co. will be keen to have the midfielder back as soon as possible.

But, according to football.london, Skipp may not return until the middle of April: ‘football.london understands that Skipp's problem is continuing to improve and the 21-year-old midfielder is working outdoors.

‘However, he is still doing so on his own with sports science staff rather than with his team-mates and there is an expectation that he could be around two weeks from a return to first team action in mid-April.’

Tottenham vs Newcastle

Tottenham’s next outing comes against Newcastle United on Sunday.

The game is a must-win for Spurs, if they are to have any hope of securing a top-four place.

Conte’s side are currently fifth in the Premier League, three points behind fourth-placed Arsenal who also have a game in hand.

Below Spurs, meanwhile, Manchester United are one point behind and West Ham three, meaning Tottenham could easily end this weekend down as low as sixth if they lose.
