Tottenham Hotspur confirmed on Friday that goalkeeper Michel Vorm is being assessed after picking up a knee injury in the dramatic win against Swansea on Wednesday night.

With the Dutchman set to be absent for the Premier League clash against Watford at White Hart Lane on Saturday, and first-choice stopper Hugo Lloris still a doubt because of illness, it means there could be a debut for Pau Lopez between the sticks.
The victory at the Liberty Stadium kept Spurs seven points behind leaders Chelsea and still in the title race, but
the injuries are starting to pile up.
Harry Wink and Erik Lamela have been ruled out for the rest of the season, while Danny Rose won’t return until the end of the month. However, Harry Kane could return against the Hornets.
Tottenham fans were quick to have their say on the injury update via social media, with many worried about the potential of Lopez starting, and others hoping that Lloris is able to return on Saturday.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction to the news…
