Tottenham midfielder will miss the Champions League tie with Manchester City

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks has been ruled out of Tottenham Hotspur’s tie with Manchester City.

Winks has a groin injury and has been left at home for treatment, the club confirmed. 

Eric Dier and Serge Aurier have also been ruled out.

Winks started Tottenham’s win over City last week, in which the North London side registered a 1-0 first half lead.

Tottenham are now expected to start with Moussa Sissoko and Victor Wanyama in central midfield.

Winks’ injury is a problem for Tottenham beyond tonight. Spurs are battling for a top four place and cannot afford any more fitness issues.

Winks suffered with injuries last season and had been largely fitness free this season until this blow, at the worst possible time.

Here is a look at how Tottenham fans reacted to Winks’ blow…
