He started that match and unfortunately, he sustained a hamstring injury in the first half as the Black Stars secured a narrow 1-0 win.

Even if he was fit Schlupp wouldn’t have featured in South Africa defeat in Johannesburg because the African country is on UK’s red list and any player returning to the UK from there would face mandatory isolation upon re-entry.

The club haven’t spoken about the injury but Schlupp is a doubt for their Premier League clash with Tottenham on Saturday.
