Graham Roberts thinks Dembele will be OK for Arsenal

SPURS vs Arsenal

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Mousa Dembele has become the fourth Belgian player to reach 200 Premier League appearances, alongside Vincent Kompany, Marouane Fellaini and Simon Mignolet.

The 29-year-old (30 in July) twisted his ankle against Crystal Palace. It happened just before half-time when another challenge from a Palace player was simply ignored by the referee. That was typical of him during the game.

Pretty confident be ready for Sunday mainly precaution and he won't want to miss the game

Pochettino was unconcerned and reminded reporters his side were only looking up the table, not down it.

“The fans were very warm and tried to pressure the referee a little bit. Mousa suffered a twist to his ankle and I think in that moment we decided to change the shape. Son [Heung-Min] and Moussa Sissoko worked well. I think we played well and deserved the victory. 
"Mousa felt his ankle at half-time. I don't believe that is a big thing and we need to assess him. When you are playing you are not thinking about the gap or what happened yesterday or what will happen tomorrow. 
"We are not thinking to be above Arsenal. Our challenge now is to reduce the gap again to Chelsea. We are thinking about bigger things than only to finish above Arsenal. I totally understand your question but to achieve big things and to one day win big things your mentality must be bigger and thinking of big dreams, they are important to have."
