‘Then we can cancel’, ‘will be turned on’ – Tottenham fans fear worst as key player misses north London derby against Arsenal

Tottenham fans have reason to worry ahead of their Premier League clash with Arsenal with Cristian Romero out of their starting XI. The defender has been a key force in Tottenham’s backline in the second half of the season and his absence will undoubtedly be a huge blow for Spurs.

With a hip injury against Liverpool, Romero was unable to recover on time for today’s game. Devinson Sanchez has been selected to replace the star alongside Eric Dier and Ben Davis to form a back three.

On Twitter, Spurs loyalists expressed their concern that their star defender will not be available ahead of such an important clash that could determine who will finish fourth this season and qualify for the Champions League. Here’s a selection of tweets:

@Spurs official No Romero. Did he have the coronavirus? We can cancel it, can’t we?This is how it works

@Spurs official Of course, we can postpone the game until Romero is back, right?i mean it works for arsenal

@Spurs official I guess it’s funny while it lasts. Without Romero, our defense would be opened. A score of more than 3 is required to have a chance.

It is uncertain whether Romero is fit for Spurs for the remainder of the season against Norwich City and Burnley, both of which are must-win games. They cannot drop points if they intend to overtake Arsenal for the last Champions League berth.

Tottenham and Arsenal to face Ruben Neves: report

According to 90 Minutes, Tottenham will face Arsenal in the play-off transfer market after their Champions League qualifying campaign. The outlet reports that the north London sides will sign Portuguese midfielder Ruben Neves from Wolves this summer.

The Wolves star has attracted a lot of attention after his impressive performance at the Molineux Stadium. If reports are to be believed, he has even caught the attention of Catalan giants Barcelona in recent weeks, with the star looking poised to make a big-money move to a top team.

While Arsenal are considered the favourites to sign Neves, Tottenham have decided to muddy the waters a bit. While both teams are excellent clubs, they have a similar position in world football and they appear to be the best and most likely transfer destinations if Neves decides to leave Molyneux.

Neves and his representatives won’t have an easy time picking his next destination, but the star is about to play European football again. While he’s also reportedly on United’s radar, the Red Devils’ absence from the Champions League next season means the Gunners will be favoured over struggling Old Trafford.
