Tottenham Hotspur took on Sheffield United this weekend at the new stadium, but were held to a draw by the newly-promoted side.

Spurs looked rather flat yet again in the Premier League, with one of their brightest sparks in Tanguy Ndombele being forced off at half time with a groin injury.

After only just welcoming new signings Giovani Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon back into the team, this is the last thing that Pochettino will want.

Ndombele has been a major driving force in that Tottenham midfield ever since the start of the season when he scored on his debut against Aston Villa.

France manager, Didier Deschamps, who called both Ndombele and Moussa Sissoko up to the most recent squad, has now given an update on the midfield man.

He claims that Ndombele only has a small problem and they will assess him over the next two days, adding that he has not called up a replacement.

He said (L’Equipe): “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.”
