Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino admits he is worried about Mousa Dembele’s fitness ahead of their Champions League game with PSV. The midfielder came off after just six minutes of Saturday’s 3-2 win at Wolves with an ankle injury.
He will be assessed before Tuesday’s game, with Spurs third in Group B and needing to win to keep their qualification hopes alive.

Speaking about the injury, Pochettino said: “It will be a shame because we hope it’s not a big issue. It’s very painful now but I hope it’s not a big issue and he can be with the team again soon.”
Fellow midfielders Victor Wanyama (knee) and Eric Dier (thigh) are already out, while Son Heung-Min replaced Dembele at Molineux.
Dele Alli was rested for the last Premier League encounter against Wolves to keep him fresh for Tuesday’s must-win tie against PSV.
