Tottenham injury update: Destiny Udogie, Pedro Porro and Richarlison latest news and return dates

Tottenham return to Premier League action this weekend with a crucial fixture against north London rivals Arsenal in their battle for Champions League qualification.

Ange Postecoglou’s side sit one place below Aston Villa in the final qualification spot, albeit with two games in hand.

Spurs were abject in their last Premier League outing, a 4-0 humbling against Newcastle at St James’ Park. They must respond against Arsenal to put pressure on Unai Emery’s men and to keep Champions League qualification in their hands.

Despite a rest week with no FA Cup action, Destiny Udogie was added to Tottenham’s injury list. The 21-year-old will miss the rest of the season after picking up an injury in training.

Richarlison and Pedro Porro will both be eager to return against Arsenal this weekend.

Meanwhile, long-term absentees Ryan Sessegnon, Manor Solomon, and Fraser Forster are all still unavailable.

Here is your latest update of Tottenham injury news and return dates...

Destiny Udogie

Udogie has been ruled out for the rest of the season after undergoing surgery on his left quadriceps.

“An injury brings my season to an early end," Udogie wrote on Instagram on Saturday

"It doesn't take away from how grateful I am to every person that has supported me this year.”

Tottenham confirmed that the Italian defender will “continue his rehabilitation with our medical staff and is expected to rejoin the squad during pre-season.”

Potential return date: Summer 2024

Pedro Porro

Porro was forced off early in the second-half against Newcastle with a hamstring injury.

Post-match, Postecoglou confirmed the right back “felt something in the first half and he wanted to see how it went in the second half.”

The Spanish international has impressed this season and may be fit enough to feature against Arsenal.

Richarlison has missed Spurs’ last two Premier League fixtures after struggling with a knee injury since the beginning of March.

Ahead of their damaging defeat against Newcastle, Ange Postecoglou confirmed “he’s close” to returning and “on track to do that.”

The Brazilian forward will be desperate to return to fitness ahead of this weekend’s north London derby.

Ryan Sessegnon

Sessegnon’s Tottenham career has been significantly impacted by ongoing injury problems. The versatile 23-year-old has not featured in a single minute of Premier League action this season.

He has only managed seven minutes of senior football this campaign, after coming on against Burnley in the FA Cup third round.

The former Fulham player is unavailable after undergoing surgery on his right hamstring following an under-21s game in February.

It is unlikely the Englishman will play again this season.

Potential return date: Summer 2024

Manor Solomon

In March, Tottenham confirmed that Solomon had undergone “minor” surgery to the meniscus on his right knee.

Ange Postecoglou also revealed that the Israeli winger “is still not anywhere near rejoining the group.”

Solomon has only made six appearances this season, and has not played since September.

The 24-year-old will hope to return to fitness for pre-season.

Potential return date: Summer 2024

Fraser Forster

Spurs’ third-choice keeper has been out since February with a fractured ankle.

The former England international will likely be unavailable for the rest of the campaign
