Tottenham Hotspur haven’t given supporters too much to shout about in recent times, but last night’s win over Borussia Dortmund will have certainly delighted a number of fans as they now find themselves in the draw for the next round of the Champions League.
But, one negative to take away from last night’s game was an injury worry, as according to the Evening Standard, Harry Winks is to be assessed after being forced off during yesterday’s win.
What’s the News?
The Englishman is waiting to find out the damage done to a problem with a hip and groin injury after he limped off in last night’s game at Signal Iduna Park.
“We don’t know yet,” the midfielder said when asked how bad the issue was.
“I’ve had a bit of a problem the last four or five days. A problem with my hip and groin.
“We’ll asses it today and see how bad it is, but nothing too serious.”
Winks, who is valued at £18 million (by Transfermarkt), has won the hearts of many supporters in the current campaign as he’s established himself as one of the standout performers in the side. Indeed, he’s formed a formidable partnership in the middle of midfield with Moussa Sissoko, which has brought the North London club plenty of success.
However, both supporters and the club will now face an anxious wait to see the extent of his injury, but Winks stating that the injury is ‘nothing too serious’ will be sure to release some tension.
