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.



  1. Last season we were so lucky with injuries which explains, coupled with Chelsea and Liverpool surprisingly not at the horses, why we did so well.This year there is a totally different situation, hence we are struggling.

  2. What a downer! I’d say we’ve not just been unlucky with injuries, we’ve been plagued! If were up there come December, I see great things potentially ahead!

    has most of our key players, at least, being in contention on Saturday.
    I don’t think our injury list is as grave as the ‘popular press’ would have it…no surprise there especially if Poch continues with three at the back e.g. Walker-Alderweireld-Vertonghen or Alderweireld-Vertonghen-Wimmer etc…the options are there.
    I continue to beat my drum i.e. two upfront…On va voir!
