This could be devastating news to lose Allan for any extended amount of time. He’s transformed this team since making his full return against Manchester United.
The 22-year-old tweaked his hamstring in August that forced him to miss the Norwich City match. He returned for Tottenham a week later but only managed 15 minutes before his hamstring went.
He wasn’t able to start a match again until almost 6 weeks later. We really hope that he is not out for too long with his latest injury. We’ll likely see Christian Atsu back in the team over the next few weeks. Let’s hope it’s no longer than that.
