Tottenham’s Mousa Dembele reveals injury not serious

The Belgian was hurt in Spurs’ 0-0 draw against Everton but has stated that he hopes to be fit to play in the team’s next game.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Mousa Dembele has revealed on Twitter that the injury he picked up against Everton is not serious and that he hopes to be fit for the team’s next game.

The Belgium international has started all four of the North London club’s Premier League games so far, operating in a wide role that is slightly unusual for a player used to playing centrally.

Dembele has been a source of frustration for the White Hart Lane faithful since he moved to the club from Fulham, with the talented midfielder incredibly gifted but guilty of inconsistency and overplaying when in possession.

As can be seen above, the gifted playmaker has revealed that his injury is not as serious as initially feared and that he hopes to be ready to feature for Mauricio Pochettino’s men against Sunderland after the international break.

Dembele was hurt while crossing the ball from the byline, in what looked like it could well be a long lay off for the midfielder.

The 28-year-old is set to be tested for a place in the Spurs starting XI soon, with the summer additions of Heung-min Son and Clinton N’jie set to make competition for places in Pochettino’s team fierce.
