Tottenham’s pre-season tour got off to a perfect start with a 4-1 win over AS Roma, but there is already a major injury concern ahead of the new campaign.

According to the London Evening Standard, Victor Wanyama suffered a recurrence of a knee problem in training prior to Roma game.

As a result, Wanyama was left out of the team. Spurs didn’t miss him, securing a convincing victory thanks to doubles from Fernando Llorente and Lucas Moura.

But Tottenham now face an anxious wait to discover the extent of the injury. A similar problem saw Wanyama miss the first four months of last season.

The Standard reports that Spurs claim Wanyama was only left out of the team to face Roma as a precaution, and his injury isn’t as serious as last time.

But if I recall correctly, Wanyama wasn’t expected to be out for long last term, yet his return date was repeatedly pushed back.

Hopefully it isn’t too much of a problem – Tottenham are desperately short in central midfield due to injuries to Harry Winks and Josh Onomah, while Mousa Dembele could leave in the current transfer window.
