Is James Maddison injured? Tottenham ace fails to play 90 minutes in north London derby vs Arsenal

Tottenham came from behind twice to seal a 2-2 draw with Arsenal in the first north London derby of the season, but James Maddison did not play the whole match.

Maddison was brilliant for Spurs as he set up two assists for Heung-min Son before being taken off.

Maddison and Son proved to be a deadly duo

The England international was one of the signings of the season, so Spurs fans will be concerned that he didn’t play the whole game.

Is James Maddison injured?

The former Leicester City man was involved in numerous tackles throughout the match.

But he suffered a bad landing after a challenge that shook his knee.

He continued for ten minutes before being taken off with 12 minutes plus stoppage time remaining.

However, it appears Maddison avoided serious injury.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the match, he said: “I shook my knee a bit, and you don’t want to play in a derby when you’re not 100 per cent, so I had to withdraw.”

And to further boost Spurs fans, Ange Postecoglou also confirmed that the England international is fine.

He said: “Madders wasn’t 100 per cent in the game, but he did well.”

Maddison therefore appears to have avoided any serious injury, which is great news for Spurs fans.
