Wilson Palacios looks set to be on the sidelines for three weeks after undergoing an arthroscopy on his left knee. The player reported a problem after training on Thursday and staff moved swiftly to address the issue.
Palacios last played in the defeat at Blackpool before missing out on the next two games – the league match at Molineux and the Champions League tie with AC Milan.
Palacios’ absence does at least seem to ensure that Sandro will be one of the first names on the Spurs team sheet following his solid displays in midfield, so it is arguable as to how much the Honduran will be missed.
With the young Brazilian looking to have a bright future at Tottenham as a defensive midfielder and Tom Huddlestone soon returning to the ranks, you have to wonder as to what the future holds for Wilson at Spurs. Is he a useful member of the squad who should be retained, or would it be better to cash in this summer while his stock is still relatively high?
