Jan Vertonghen suffered an ankle injury when he twisted it stretching to try and keep the ball in play, how serious it is and how long he will be out is too early to say Pochettino told us after the game.
“It looks bad for Jan. We need to wait to assess him better on Sunday or Monday. He is very disappointed.”
That means if we retain the back three there is a clear choice between Ben Davies who plays the role for Wales or Kevin Wimmer who is the left-footed backup to Jan Vertonghen. Jamie Redknapp and Thiery Henry were both working as pundits for Sky and they were talking about Ben Davies playing the role, they didn't even mention Kevin Wimmer.
Wimmer played in the system against Arsenal and with the Europa League starting in February Davies might well be needed to rotate with Danny Rose, that could affect any decision to play Davies in a back three. We would surely be looking for continuity of selection at the back so perhaps Wimmer will get the nod in a weeks time
