You may have missed it during the post-match furore surrounding Harry Kane on Sunday, but Moussa Sissoko also picked up what looks to be quite a significant muscular injury.
The Frenchman has had his fair share of detractors since arriving from Newcastle for almost £30m over two years ago, but he is slowly beginning to win supporters over following a spectacular resurgence. "I have always said I feel better in the centre," Sissoko revealed when asked what has triggered his upturn in form. "My strength is my power. I use it a lot. I’m a player who can do box-to-box, who can defend and go with the ball and at the same time go forward, behind the defenders. I don’t try to be someone else, I just try to be myself and play how I can. That’s why I’m successful right now." Mauricio Pochettino was hopeful that the setback was not a "big issue" but following a scan, it appears that the groin injury could keep Sissoko out for at least a month. Jan 16 - 5:38 PM
