Spurs have seen a number of players sent home from international duty over the last week with fitness issues and now another can be added to the list.
Victor Wanyama was substituted at half-time during Kenya’s 1-0 victory over Liberia. There is no news as yet as to whether he’s injured and if so, how serious the problem is.
Considering the match was a friendly, we shouldn’t rule out the possibility that it was tactical, or previously agreed with the club that Wanyama would only play for 45 minutes.
If Wanyama does have an injury, he will surely be a doubt for Saturday’s match with West Ham. Eric Dier is of course an obvious replacement in the defensive midfield position, but he has been deputising for Toby Alderweireld of late and with the Belgian also a doubt for the West Ham clash, Mauricio Pochettino could be faced with a selection dilemma.
