Spurs Sweating Over Dembele

Spurs Sweating Over Dembele

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino admits he is worried about Mousa Dembele’s fitness ahead of their Champions League game with PSV. The midfielder came off after just six minutes of Saturday’s 3-2 win at Wolves with an ankle injury.

He will be assessed before Tuesday’s game, with Spurs third in Group B and needing to win to keep their qualification hopes alive.

Speaking about the injury, Pochettino said: “It will be a shame because we hope it’s not a big issue. It’s very painful now but I hope it’s not a big issue and he can be with the team again soon.”

 

Fellow midfielders Victor Wanyama (knee) and Eric Dier (thigh) are already out, while Son Heung-Min replaced Dembele at Molineux.

 

Dele Alli was rested for the last Premier League encounter against Wolves to keep him fresh for Tuesday’s must-win tie against PSV.
