Spurs fans struck by worry as heroic midfielder leaves the field

Mousa Dembele has just left the field at Wembley with what looked to be a minor injury. We can’t be too sure of the severity just yet, but the fact that he was able to prevent a dangerous attack moments before he was substituted suggests it was not totally debilitating.

Vincent Janssen, the bemoaned summer signing, was his replacement with Christian Eriksen dropping into Dembele’s role to try and build play from a deeper position.

Concern was immediate across the Twitter world, such has been the importance of Dembele under the guidance of Mauricio Pochettino.

Arsenal’s midfielders may have been rather chuffed to see the Belgian taken off before half-time, while Pochettino has enough concerns at the moment.

Other Spurs fans opted to remain mindlessly positive. That’s all good and well, folks, but this lad is possibly being a little too optimistic. Positive mental attitude can only carry you so far.

Dembele wasn’t that bad, really. Still a little rusty, that’s all!

That injury list does not make good reading if you’re a Spurs fan. Losing your arguably your three most crucial players will hurt any team – it might go some way to explaining Spurs’ recent poor form.
