Tottenham Hotspur will need all the help they can get in attack tomorrow night against RB Leipzig in the Champions League, as they were dealt another injury blow today.

It was announced that Steven Bergwijn had joined Heung-min Son and Harry Kane on the Tottenham injury list following the Burnley match at the weekend.

Bergwijn had been seen limping towards the end of the game and Spurs have now revealed that the Dutchman sustained a significant sprain on his ankle, as he now begins and extended rehabilitation period.

This leaves Tottenham with the likes of Dele Alli and Lucas Moura as makeshift striker options tomorrow night against Leipzig.

Jose Mourinho was also asked whether Erik Lamela would be fit enough to start the match against the German side after making the XI against Burnley three days ago. The Argentine’s injury problems have been well documented and prevalent over the years.

Football London claim that the head coach responded as follows: ‘Scrunches his face up at the suggestion of Lamela and shrugs his shoulders.’

Later in the press conference, he said: “I think Dele played very very well against Burnley. Again it is easy to understand. We have Lucas and Dele Alli and then Lamela is a question mark, Sessegnon coming from an injury. These are the attacking players that we have, we don’t have others. Not easy, but we go.”
