Tottenham’s Premier League season continued to be difficult at the weekend, with a 1-1 draw at home against Sheffield United.
The newly promoted club will likely feel at least a little harshly treated after they had a goal ruled out for offside. Spurs are now 14th in the table, and 11 points away from the top four.
Tanguy Ndombele was forced off midway through the match, and his injury situation has caused a little concern in France. Didier Deschamps has already lost Juventus’ Blaise Matuidi, meaning midfield is the last place he needs another injury.
However, there’s optimism around the Tottenham player, even if it’s been made clear there is an issue after he came off with an adductor problem.
L’Equipe quote Deschamps as saying: “It’s not very bad, he has a little worry that should be resolved within 48 hours. If I had uncertainty, I would have made the decision (to call someone else up), but that’s not the case.”
France face Moldova in Paris on Thursday before travelling to Albania for their next match on Sunday.
Mauricio Pochettino will certainly hope there are no risks taken with his player during the current international break.
