Tottenham's Mousa Dembele sends message after injury setback

The Tottenham Hotspur midfielder has taken to social media after the club's 0-0 draw with Everton.

Tottenham Hotspur player Mousa Dembele has taken to Twitter after being stretchered off during the match against Everton on Saturday evening.

The Belgium international was replaced in the 53rd minute by teenager Dele Alli after going down having made no contact with another player.

At the time it looked bad for the 28-year-old, who has featured in all of Tottenham’s matches so far this season. But now the player himself has sent a message on social media addressing both the result and his setback.

Tottenham drew 0-0 with Everton to continue their disappointing start to the new campaign, and Dembele wrote, “Pity we couldn’t win yesterday. Let’s hope the injury is not too bad. Thank you all for the support.”

Dembele divides opinion among many Tottenham fans but it seems he will play an integral role under manager Mauricio Pochettino this season if his early selections are an indication of things to come.

To date the former Fulham midfielder has featured 127 matches for Tottenham, but with just five goals and eight assists in that time he is not exactly the star-player Spurs so desperately need as they bid to return to the top four and challenge for silverware under Pochettino.
