Kyle Walker had his match against Liverpool cut short after sustaining an injury in the first half, and worried Spurs fans have taken to Twitter.
The right-back left the field after just 28 minutes at White Hart Lane, and was replaced by striker Vincent Janssen after getting treatment from the physio. Spurs supporters are now waiting to hear how serious the injury is.
The match finished 1-1 after a first-half penalty was slotted away by James Milner, before Danny Rose levelled for Spurs in the second half.
Fans of the White Hart Lane club are concerned by their lack of depth in defence and are hoping Walker makes a speedy recovery.
One fan questioned Tottenham’s decision to sell DeAndre Yedlin to Newcastle in midweek.
Here are a selection of their views on Twitter.

Eric Dier was pushed back to the right-back position after starting the match in the defensive midfield role alongside Victor Wanyama.
Spurs have right-back Kieran Trippier available, but he wasn’t included in the squad to face Liverpool.
Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping for a quick recovery for Walker, as his side faces an extended fixture list with Champions League football this season.
