boss has been dealt a fresh injury blow after Richarlison was ruled out for up to a month following a knee injury.

The striker has been in superb form of late, notching up nine goals in his last 10 fixtures.

However, the Brazilian is now set for a spell on the sidelines after he picked up the knock in the 2-1 defeat against Wolves a fortnight ago.

‘Richarlison’s out three to four weeks, he picked up a knee injury in the last game so he’s out for a while,’ the Australian said in his pre-match press conference ahead of their home fixture against on Saturday.

‘He’s had a great middle part of the season for us and been a big contributor but that’s kind of how his season has gone and we’ll just have to compensate for him not being there.’

Meanwhile, Postecoglou could be boosted by the potential return of Destine Udogie at left-back but Saturday’s game will come too soon for fellow full-back Pedro Porro after he suffered a muscle strain in training two weeks ago.

‘Destiny has a chance for tomorrow, he trained so we’ll see how he pulls up. Pedro is probably another week away.’

Elsewhere, Manor Solomon remains unavailable for selection as he continues his comeback from a knee injury, while there are more injury woes for Ryan Sessegnon who underwent another surgery for his hamstring after he picked up an injury in midweek.

‘Sess is a tough one, it’s through no fault of his own and he’s worked hard to come back,’ Postecoglou added.

‘It’s always challenging when he hasn’t had any reward for all his hard work in rehab in terms of getting out there to play.

‘He will get the support he needs, he’s had surgery, he’s a positive guy and he’s been through this before so hopefully that helps.’

Spurs will hope to get back to winning ways at home against Palace as they look to keep pressure on Aston Villa in fourth.

The Eagles, meanwhile, will be hoping to make it two wins from two under new manager Oliver Glasner following their 3-0 home win over Burnley last weekend.
