Mauricio Pochettino told the press it was far too early to know what the problem is with Toby Alderweireld. He seemed to take a knock from Jan Vertonghen and couldn't walk after that, having to be stretchered off.
"It's very difficult [for him to go to play in Germany], for a holiday yes. Now it's very painful. We don't know. We need to assess tomorrow and give it some time, 24 hours, 48. Do a scan, do what the doctor needs to do to know what happened.
"He got a heavy knock in his leg. We don't know the problem. It was difficult for me to see from the bench. All I said was 'how are you?' and he said 'I have a lot of pain'. It's a big area - knee, leg, all."
This gives a chance to Cameron Carter-Vickers or Kevin Wimmer unless Eric Dier slots in back there having looked accomplished when he did today.
