Mauricio Pochettino confirms Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen will be checked over the coming days after the pair were forced off during Sunday’s 4-0 win over Stoke City at White Hart Lane.
Reports after the match suggest that both players asked to come off as a precaution, although the extent of their problems won’t be known until they are fully assessed. Alderweireld signalled to the bench at the beginning of the second half due to an apparent groin problem while the nature of Vertonghen’s injury is yet to be determined. The Belgium defender was making his first Premier League start since damaging ankle ligaments against West Brom six weeks ago, and the injury maybe related. Tottenham are already without Danny Rose who is "a number of weeks away from a return to full training" and Pochettino can ill-afford to lose another key player with his side pushing hard for a Champions League place.
