Following the 2-1 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers, Pochettino spoke to the in club media after the game.
With Palmer and Sterling already facing suspension ahead of Wednesday, it seems like another player is set to be absent despite only just coming back.
Pochettino told the clubs website after the game, “He [Ugochukwu] is a player that we were recovering but with all the circumstances, we were forced to play with him.”
The circumstances that Pochettino is labelling include the absence of Moises Caicedo, Enzo Fernandez and Romeo Lavia.
Pochettino continues to say that we are going to perhaps ‘lose him’ after he was substituted in the 2nd half.
