Tottenham fans react to Victor Wanyama injury blow ahead of PL clash with Liverpool

Tottenham fans have been left in awe by the news that Mauricio Pochettino is “concerned” about the extent of the injury to Victor Wanyama, who will need to see a specialist.

The news was announced ahead of the pre-match press conference for the Premier League clash with Liverpool at Wembley on Sunday.

The Argentine boss spoke about Wanyama at his press conference saying, “We are concerned about his situation. We must wait for when he sees the specialist and then we’ll see what happens.”

The news about Wanyama comes after lengthy injuries to Erik Lamela, Mousa Dembele and Danny Rose. Rose made his comeback for Tottenham with a cameo against Real Madrid on Tuesday but prior to that he hadn’t played since the Premier League match against Sunderland in January.

Lamela hasn’t played since 2016 and there’s been a lot of mystery surrounding his injury, before the Argentinian announced he would need surgery.

Dembele has only made six appearances this season but the true extent of his injury has never been made clear.

It’s a worrying trend for Tottenham fans and they took to Twitter to voice their concern on Friday afternoon.

Football Weeks has rounded up some of their best tweets.

Tottenham welcomes Liverpool at the Wembley this Sunday, in what is the standout match of the domestic weekend.

The clash is sure to be an entertaining game between two sides who approach football in a different manner, with Pochettino and Reds boss Jurgen Klopp two of the most exhilarating managers around.

The Reds are without long-term absentees Sadio Mane, Adam Lallana and Nathaniel Clyne, but they are the Merseyside’s only injury concerns.

The Reds may be missing several key faces, but the same can also be said of Tottenham, with two of their midfield linchpins not playing a part this weekend.

Wanyama has only managed two Premier League appearances all season, and he still hasn’t recovered from an ongoing knee problem.

Dembele, meanwhile will not be in contention to start, despite travelling with the squad to Real Madrid in midweek. The Belgian has a knee injury.
