Nuno Espírito Santo will have to survive the next couple of fixtures without two of their three available left-backs at the Club. 

Not only will Ryan Sessegnon be sidelined for some time due to an injury sustained during September's international break, but now Ben Davies will also be out for a while.

Nuno speaks

The Portuguese manager revealed Davies has not been able to play in Premier League or in the UEFA Europa Conference League because of a pain in his appendix. 

"He has a problem on an inflammation on his appendix," Espírito Santo said. "He has been taken care of, he has had some scans, but he is not able to play, he is in pain. We wish that he recovers soon and he can join us."

Options

While Davies and Sessegnon are out, Nuno will be forced to start Sergio Reguilón against Aston Villa, which also happens to be Spurs last match before the October international break. 

Reguilon may be the only natural left-back available in the squad, but there are other players such as Joe Rodon or even Maksim Paskotši, who could also be adapted to play in that position if required.

The Welsh International, who arrived to Spurs from Swansea City in 2014, featured just 20 times in the league last season but was an important figure in Tottenham's Europa League campaign.

This season, Davies has already played five games across all competitions, including one league appearance in Tottenham's 0-3 loss against Crystal Palace. 

The Welsh international now joins Sessegnon and Steven Bergwijn as the Spurs players' who are out indefinitely. 

After the international break, Spurs will be back competing until October 17th., where they will face Newcastle United at St. James Park.
