Tottenham confirm Mousa Dembele is unlikely to return until the new year.
Speaking ahead of this weekends’ game at Selhurst Park, manager Mauricio Pochettino revealed the 31-year-old damaged ankle ligaments in the opening exchanges of Saturdays’ game at Molineux. "It is always about the patience, how he is going to react to the injury, but we hope he is going to be ready by early January." His absence is likely to open the door for Harry Winks who looks set for a more prominent first-team role during the coming weeks and over the festive period. Thankfully, Eric Dier and Victor Wanyama have recovered much quicker than anticipated and will bolster the squad this weekend. It was initially feared that Wanyama had suffered another lengthy setback in Carabao Cup, but Pochettino revealed the injury affected his right knee, and not the left, which has hampered him for the past year. A thigh injury was expected to keep Dier out until after the international break, but the 24-year-old is already back in full training. Nov 8 - 4:42 PM
