Dele Alli is rated as a major doubt for England’s second Group G game against Panama on Sunday.

The Tottenham midfielder suffered a thigh injury during the first half of the win over Tunisia, and even though Fabian Delph was readied as his replacement, Alli managed to see out 80 minutes. "Hopefully I am okay," he said post-match. "It's my quad." Meanwhile, the Football Association confirmed that the 22-year-old was sent for a precautionary scan which revealed a "slight thigh strain," and with such a short turnaround between games, Gareth Southgate is not prepared to take any unnecessary risks. That could open the door for Ruben Loftus-Cheek who impressed during his 10-minute cameo. Elsewhere, Marcus Rashford will also come into the manager’s thinking having helped change the course of Monday’s game. The Manchester United attacker replaced a disappointing Raheem Sterling, who faded badly in the second half, and he looks poised for a starting berthing against the team ranked at 55 in the world by FIFA.

Roberto Martinez says the Belgium quartet of Thibaut Courtois, Eden Hazard, Toby Alderweireld and Mousa Dembele will put all talk of their futures on hold until after the finals in Russia.

"The group has decided to only focus on the World Cup. All the personal situations will be put to one side," revealed the national manager. Courtois has just 12 months remaining on his current deal and recent reports suggest Chelsea have turned down a £35m bid from Champions League winners Real Madrid. Meanwhile, team-mate Hazard is also attracting interest from the La Liga giants, and he said little to quell rumours of a potential move: "Do they interest me? Yes, maybe," he said. "If I stay at Chelsea, then the team have to do better than they did last season." Alderweireld appears to have fallen out-of-favour under Mauricio Pochettino following an injury-plagued season and the centre-back could leave, if a new deal can’t be agreed. Dembele appears the most likely to move on as Tottenham look to cash-in on the 30-year-old who is a long-term fitness worry.

Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld has left his future in North London open with his latest comments to the Belgium media.

According to Belgian newspaper Dezondag, the versatile defender is eyeing a summer exit after the World Cup with Belgium. "I have another two years contract. Tottenham decides about my future. Of course I have my own idea. But that is not the case now. The past season was tough. But I'm glad that I could play the last four matches. That means that I am ready for the World Cup." If Spurs activate the one-year option in his contract for 2019/2020, he can leave for only £25 million, at least £30 million short of his potential value. But after making only 14 top-flight appearances last year, the Belgian could be on his way out this summer.

Manchester United are keen to complete the double signing of Toby Alderweireld and Brazilian midfielder Fred before the start of the World Cup finals in Russia.

Reports suggest that United have already opened talks with Alderweireld in a deal said to be worth in the region of £55 million, although chairman Daniel Levy would like closer to £75 million. Alderweireld helped form the mainstay of the Tottenham defence under Pochettino, but after suffering a serious hamstring injury in November, he has struggled to nail down regular game time since his recovery. Discussions over a new deal have been ongoing for a while, but the club are not prepared to match Alderweireld’s wage demands and they will now look to cash-in. Due to a clause in his current contract, he can leave next year for £25 million meaning the club will push to off-load him in the summer. Elsewhere, Shakhtar president Rinat Akhmetov has already confirmed Fred will be sold to "a good and strong club" with United in pole position to land him for around £52 million.

Amid links this summer to Chelsea among other big-club vacancies, the Argentine manager signs on for five more years with Spurs after leading the club to back-to-back top-three finishes in the Premier League. Said Pochettino after the deal was announced: "I am honoured to have signed a new long-term contract as we approach one of the most significant periods in the Club's history and be the manager that will lead this team into our new world-class stadium. This is just one of the factors that makes this one of the most exciting jobs in world football and we are already making plans to ensure we continue to build on the great work that everyone has contributed to over the past four years."

The Football Association confirm Tottenham striker Harry Kane has been named as the England captain for the World Cup finals in Russia.

In a meeting at St. George’s Park on Monday evening, manager Gareth Southgate confirmed Kane will be skipper for the tournament: "Harry has some outstanding personal qualities," he said.

On hearing the news, Kane said: "To be captain is that little bit more," he said. "I’m so excited for the World Cup, I can’t wait to be there and experience it. To lead the lads out, it’s going to be special." England kick-off their campaign on June 18 against Panama at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium.

Harry Winks has been scheduled for surgery in an attempt to cure a longstanding ankle injury.

The 22-year-old was stretchered off at Turf Moor 13 months ago and has been hampered ever since. It was hoped that a recent stint at the world-renowned Aspetar Clinic in Qatar would help, but a decision has now been taken for Winks to go under the knife with a view to him being ready for pre-season. Having recently signed a new long-term deal, Winks maintains he is "determined to go forward positively" following a stop-start season which saw the promising youngster make just 16 Premier League appearances, while the problem ended any hopes of featuring at this summers World Cup finals. "It’s easy to dwell on the negatives but all I can do really is to focus on the positives. The most important thing is to get myself fit, get my ankle right and hopefully I can have a long, injury-free campaign next year, contribute to a lot of games and we can go on and win a trophy."

Heung-min Son plays down concerns of a serious injury after admitting he has been taking painkillers since April to help manage a minor ankle problem.

The Tottenham attacker was speaking in Seoul after joining his international teammates for a pre-World Cup training camp. Son has enjoyed another fantastic domestic season [12-goals + six assists] and coach Shin Tae-yong will be hoping he can continue that form heading into the World Cup finals despite a niggling ankle issue. "I really played a lot this season, but luckily I had no big injuries and gained some experience," Son said. "I did take painkillers for the last six weeks to play in matches, but there aren't footballers who are free from injury. I'll take some rest this week, and I'll be fine." South Korea face Mexico, Sweden and holders Germany in Group F and Son will have little time to rest up with friendlies against Honduras, Bosnia, Bolivia and Senegal prior to their opening game in Russia on June 18.

Erik Lamela scored a brace and added an assist, all in the second half, in an absolutely frantic affair as Tottenham erased a 1-3 deficit to eventually win 5-4.

Good grief, what a last hurrah for these two sides as it was end-to-end action for the full 90 minutes. It was tough news for Spurs early - first they got word that Jan Vertonghen was a late scratch, then the Belgian's absence seem to lead to giving up the opening goal inside of four minutes. The frenzy was on though as Harry Kane leveled it just three minutes later, going near post after a nice feed from Lucas Moura. Momentum shifted to the Foxes, who scored two unanswered as the second half unfolded, but Spurs stormed back. Lamela's first goal came in the 49th minute, tapping home another assist from Lucas. Lamela then got the fantasy assist by having an effort minutes later turned in by Leicester for an own goal. He got his brace on the hour mark, putting another short range shot home from a Kyle Walker-Peters ball. Leicester would level but leave it to Kane to score the final goal of the day, this one helped by Danny Rose.

Mauricio Pochettino is a "little bit concerned" about the injury sustained by Kieran Trippier and hopes the setback will not end his dreams of playing in this summer’s World Cup finals.

Trippier was forced off with less than 10 minutes remaining after a challenge from behind by Mo Diame which earned the Newcastle midfielder a yellow card. During his post-match press conference, Pochettino would not speculate on the severity of the problem but admitted it was a worry: "We need to wait until Thursday and after that we will assess," he said. "I wish, and I hope that he is OK. Of course, we are a little bit concerned about the situation. I hope fitness is not a big issue, and he can be ready and fit to play at the World Cup. I think it was a twist of his knee." Regardless, Trippier will not be risked in the final game now that their Champions League qualification place has been assured for next season. Serge Aurier will come into the side if he can overcome a hamstring injury.

Tottenham secured its mission to play Champions League football next season with a 1-0 win against Newcastle.

Although the Spurs attacker didn’t have the triple-captain outbreak that FPL.com managers dreamed about over the last week, including a scoreless draw in the first game of the double gameweek, Harry Kane still appeased with the match-winner against Newcastle when he flicked on Heung-Min Son’s pass early in the first half for his 28th goal of the season. We shouldn’t rule out catching Mohamed Salah stop the leaderboard, as Kane currently sits three goal behind the Liverpool star, especially given his performance to end the year last season.

Eric Dier was absent from training on Tuesday and the midfielder will miss tomorrow's match against Newcastle at Wembley.

Speaking ahead of the re-arranged Premier League clash, manager Mauricio Pochettino provided a mixed injury update for a game his side can ill afford to lose with Chelsea breathing down their necks in fourth place. "Last night Dier started with vomiting and fever and now it's normal that he needs a minimum of 48 hours to recover to be available again for training. We hope he will be available for the weekend." Kieran Trippier looks set to retain his place at right-back after Serge Aurier failed to recover from a hamstring strain. On the opposite flank, Ben Davies is expected to replace Danny Rose. Mousa Dembele is being monitored ahead of the final weekend but Harry Winks' season is over as he continues his rehab following an ankle injury. Jan Vertonghen has been cleared to play having recovered after being forced off at West Brom on Saturday.

What looked to be three easy points on paper turned into an upset as West Bromwich Albion scored a late winner to edge past a frustrated Tottenham side in a 1-0 final at The Hawthorns.

This had the makings of a trap game for Spurs, but they were a bit unlucky to find the net on a few occasions. A pair of chances came in quick succession around the half hour mark, but Harry Kane was unable to take advantage of a slick ball from Kieran Trippier and had his shot saved. Moments later, Christian Eriksen sent a ball the striker's way but Kane's header was off target. It seemed at the very minimum, Spurs would see out a goalless draw, as West Brom did not threaten the other end nearly as much, but fortunes turned with about five minutes to go when Jan Vertonghen had to be removed with an injury. Tottenham would then give up the match winner in stoppage time to a former Lilywhite, Jake Livermore. Vertonghen's availability for the remainder of the season is in doubt and hopefully will recover in time for the World Cup.

Then, in the 48th minute, Harry Kane scored his first goal in his last five home games after Kieran Trippier connected with the striker for his 27th goal of the campaign to double Spurs' lead and send them five points clear of Chelsea.

Mauricio Pochettino has ruled Danny Rose out of Tottenham's clash with Manchester City as the left back is dealing with a calf injury.

Rose has been battling a variety of injuries this season, with an ankle issue causing him to miss the most amount of time. Trying to re-establish himself before the summer, another medical issue could hamper his chances of going to Russia with the Three Lions. He has been ruled out of Tottenham's midweek clash with Brighton as well which is welcome for owners of Ben Davies.
