The absence of Victor Wanyama has cost Spurs dearly. Not in results as such, but in terms of the overall strain up upon the squad.

Combine this with the increasingly limited cameos from Mousa Dembele and Spurs can think themselves fortunate that Harry Winks has coped so admirably with the pressure.

Poch said:

“Yesterday he was training alone, still not with the group, but with the sports scientist and physio. It was good. The reaction from his knee was good.

“He’s getting better every day. We’ll see if he can be available as soon as possible to help the team. He needs to feel his knee is safe and good and ready to step up again.”

The next question is when is Erik Lamela back?聽The snail race between the two recovering players is underway…

    Wanyama, the opposition midfield will be fearing his late tackles,usually because he’s lost the ball to them because he couldn’t trap a bag of cement.

    These injuries have really cost us this season – as you said, not in points so much, but we are playing a lot of fringe players and making them 1st teamers…If you were to pick our best first 11, we are 6-7 players short. (Lloris, Rose – not 100%, Toby, Wanyama, Dembele, Alli, Lamala) and I am still not sure Kane is 100%.

    Anyway, as for today’s game. Palace will park the bus but we’ll still get an early goal, they’ll try and score which will open up the game along with the flood gates.
    What can possibly go wrong?

          It’s not the sugar that bothers me so much as the stuff disgruntled employees might see fit to add to the mix.
