Micky Hazard is very worried for these Tottenham Hotspur players

White Hart Lane 4

Tottenham Hotspur legend Micky Hazard is dreading the prospect of one of Spurs' English contingent picking up an injury with England tonight.

Tottenham Hotspur legend Micky Hazard has admitted on Twitter that he will be praying for no Spurs player to pick up an injury on international duty this weekend.

Four English Lilywhites are in action tonight as England take on world champions Germany in Berlin for what could be a feisty affair, given both nations' history between each other on the international scene.

The likes of Danny Rose, Eric Dier, Dele Alli and Harry Kane will all start against the Germans - four players who have had a massive impact in helping Tottenham challenge for what could be a first league title since 1961.

Mauricio Pochettino's men sit five points behind Premier League leaders Leicester City with seven games to go, and Hazard concedes that he will effectively watch tonight's game through his fingers in fear of an injury.

Hazard is right. Should one or more of those four players pick up an injury it would have potentially fatal effects on Spurs' title charge.

As it stands, Pochettino has them playing some excellent stuff which has yielded results, but all it takes is one injury to disrupt the balance in Tottenham's first XI.

They have survived without Jan Vertonghen, with Kevin Wimmer deputising to great effect in central defence, but could they still survive without, say, Kane?
