Olivier Giroud has apparently picked up an injury in training as he prepares to face Aaron Ramsey’s Wales on Friday night in a pointless friendly match.
The Frenchman has been photographed as pictured in The Sun clutching his leg at France’s training camp in Clairefontaine. With Mustafi and Welbeck still injured, under-fire Wenger could definitely do without more bad news before the interlull is even in full swing.
Meanwhile Tottenham look to be ‘doing a Giggs’, pretending a lot of their players are injured to get them out of international duty to ensure they’re fit for the North London Derby in two weeks time.
Harry Winks, Kane, Lloris, Vorm, Alderweireld and Deli Alli are all players who will all miss the upcoming internationals, yet are all bound to make their astonishing comeback at The Emirates on the 18th of November when we face the under-achieving noisy neighbours.
Pochettino is now clearly the best manager in Europe and Tottenham the best club side ever if Sky Sports are to be believed, and the Argentinian has now taken to joining in with the mind games and letting players miss international duty like Sir Alex Ferguson used to.
Alli ‘missed’ the weekend’s narrow win over Palace with a ‘hamstring injury’ and will now miss the England friendlies. Harry Kane was subbed as well after a kick (at 1-0 up) and will no doubt also sit out of the England games only to amazingly recover and no doubt be fighting fit for the derby.
As you know, Spurs have been amazing of late, they have put the pressure on the league leaders TWICE in recent seasons, almost finishing second, TWICE (but only actually doing it once).
They also conquered Europe and beat Real Madrid last week and drew with them a couple of weeks ago in the Champions League and have cemented their place as the best side in England/Europe/the world.
Despite not winning a proper trophy for nearly 30 years and a league title for 56 years, they are well good now and Pochettino is a proper genius and it won’t be long before that empty trophy cabinet has something in it better than their last trophy, a three-handled League Cup from 9 years ago.
