Gareth Bale injured again

By Francis Kusi

Gareth Bale is set to miss Spurs clash with Manchester City due to another injury.

The Wales international has been ruled out again with a muscle injury he received in training yesterday evening. Spurs face Premier League leaders Manchester City on Saturday evening, with City 14 points clear of Spurs.

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has been concerned about Bale’s injuries in the last couple of weeks: the same injury occurred in Spurs’ fixture against West Brom last week.

Since joining in the summer, the left-winger hasn’t been able to break through into the starting 11, with the likes of Heung-Min Son and Lucas Moura currently ahead of him in the pecking order.

Spurs kick off at the Etihad Stadium at 5:45pm on Saturday.
