Dembele out until January


Mousa Demble is unlikely to be available until the New Year due to ankle ligament damage.

The Belgium international was injured during Tottenham's 3-2 victory against Wolves last weekend and scans have confirmed ligament damage to his right ankle.

The injury will prevent him from featuring for Tottenham over the busy Christmas and New Year period but manager Mauricio Pochettino is hopeful of having him available in January.

“We hope he will be ready from the beginning of January. Always it is about how the player is going to react after an injury but I hope he will be back as soon as possible and hopefully early in January to help the team win games," Pochettino told his weekly press conference.

“We always miss all of the players when they are injured. In 13 days we have played five games, every two and a half days we are competing.

“It is a massive, massive effort for the players and I am so pleased but in the same way we need to say some nice words about the staff because the staff are doing a fantastic job helping the players to be ready in every single game.”

Eric Dier (thigh) and Victor Wanyama (knee) have both returned to training with the squad and could be included in the squad to face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday, but Jan Vertonghen (hamstring) and Danny Rose (groin) will miss the game.
