Tottenham had to suffer quite a lot in order to earn the 3-0 victory over Tromso in the Europa league. They had three players injured after the match, which will be a major headache for the manager given that all of them are key for the club. Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas recently said that the Football Association was not looking at the health of the players because they were scheduled the Capital One cup in such a way that the players felt could be affected. However, the match against Tromso did more damage for Tottenham.

Mousa Dembele, Younes Kaboul, and Danny Rose all suffered injuries at various stages of this match. They are major doubts for the Premier league this weekend. It has been a great start by Tottenham as we have been able to compete along with the likes of Manchester United and Manchester City in the table so far. It was expected of them given that they spent in excess of £ 100 million in this transfer window. Even though they recouped most of the money through the sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid, their squad is substantially stronger due to the presence of several quality players across the pitch.

Villas-Boas did confirm that Dembele could feature against Cardiff during the weekend.

“Dembele should be okay. He felt a lot of pain when he was brought down, but now he’s steady. Younes felt muscle tightness in his adductor and we decided to take him off. He was struggling but he didn’t rupture anything. We have to be a little bit more careful with Danny Rose. We hope it’s not serious. We have to give him one night to see the reaction of his ankle. He is in doubt for Sunday but he should be okay,” Villas-Boas said.
