Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho has told Football.London that Ben Davies picked up a knock in the FA Cup tie with Wycombe Wanderers on Monday night.
Spurs’ trip to Adams Park proved a little trickier than hoped, as the Championship side took the lead through Fred Onyedinma.
However, Tottenham rallied and equalised through Gareth Bale before Harru Winks and a Tanguy Ndombele brace sealed a 4-1 win.
Spurs are through to the fifth round of the FA Cup with that win, but the attention will quickly turn to Thursday’s big Premier League clash with Liverpool.
Mourinho did rest a number of key players for the game ahead of facing Liverpool, but Ben Davies may now be a doubt.
The Welshman was given a start at left back, seemingly with the idea of resting Sergio Reguilon for the clash with Liverpool.
Davies made it through most of the game, but was substituted in injury time as compatriot Joe Rodon came on to see the game out.
Mourinho has though confirmed that whilst he didn’t see ‘huge fatigue’ in his players, Davies did have a ‘bad feeling’ and has left Mourinho sweating over a potential calf injury.
“I didn’t see huge fatigue. Ben Davies was just a bad feeling, I hope it is not anything on his calf, so hopefully we managed to play and not have big injuries or fatigue and not to have extra time,” said Mourinho.
Davies may not have started against Liverpool anyway, but an absence would likely rule out using the 3-4-2-1 system we saw at Sheffield United given how Davies brings balance as left-sided centre back.
