Tottenham fans worried as key midfielder could be a doubt for the trip to Swansea

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Victor Wanyama could be a doubt for the club’s trip to face Swansea City on Wednesday night after picking up a back problem in the 2-0 win against Burnley on Saturday.

The Kenya international has quickly become a key player in the middle of the park for Spurs this term following a summer move from Southampton, but he was withdrawn just before the break at Turf Moor after receiving a knee in the back from a Clarets player.

Mauricio Pochettino says the 25-year-old will need to be assessed further before determining whether he will be available for the journey to south Wales, and it is news that will come as a blow for the Argentine boss, who is already without the likes Harry Kane, Harry Winks, Erik Lamela and Danny Rose ahead of the trip to the Liberty Stadium.

Tottenham closed the gap on leaders Chelsea to seven points over the weekend, and supporters were quick to have their say on the worrying injury update concerning the Kenyan, predicting what could happen to the starting line-up if he doesn’t make it.
