Tottenham's Manor Solomon

The Israeli winger has appeared in six games for Tottenham

Manor Solomon, forward for Tottenham, will be sidelined for at least two months following a major knee injury.

The Israeli international will need to spend a significant amount of time on the sidelines due to medial collateral ligament rupture.

Following a productive loan stint at Fulham the previous season, Solomon transferred from Shakhtar Donetsk to Spurs in the summer. After a strong start to the season, the news comes as a significant shock to Ange Postecoglou.

During his summer arrival, Solomon has participated in six matches.

The 24-year-old substituted for Son Heung-min for 22 minutes of Saturday’s 2-1 win over Liverpool for Tottenham.

He follows Rodrigo Bentancur and newly acquired Brennan Johnson on the north London club’s expanding injured list.

Ivan Perisic suffers a knee ligament injury that will keep him out for a while, while Ryan Sessegnon and Giovani Lo Celso both have hamstring problems that will keep them out as well.

When Solomon was on loan at Fulham last year, the former Shakhtar winger also sustained a knee injury.

The Israeli international will miss the first three months of the 2022–23 season due to a setback that occurred during a game played behind closed doors and necessitated surgery.
