Victor Wanyama will not join up with his international teammates as he struggles to shake off a niggling knee injury.
The midfield enforcer was absent from today’s match-day 18 due to a "minor problem" which will be assessed over the next 48 hours. Wanyama damaged cartilage in his knee against Paris Saint-Germain during pre-season, an injury which resulted in him starting on the bench at Newcastle on the opening day. However, following a full week of training, Pochettino handed the 26-year-old a start in game week two - versus Chelsea – but even though he managed 90 minutes, Wanyama didn’t appear to be moving freely. His omission from the squad taking on Burnley saw Eric Dier sit alongside Mousa Dembele in a 4-2-3-1 but Spurs failed to ditch their Wembley hoodoo after the Clarets grabbed an injury time equaliser with new boy Chris Wood scoring on his Premier League debut.
