Confirmed: Fresh injury worry for Tottenham ahead of Watford clash
By Amir Mir
Michel Vorm is a fresh injury worry for Tottenham ahead of their weekend clash against Watford after he sustained a knee injury during the 3-1 win at Swansea on Wednesday night.
The 33-year-old goalkeeper replaced Hugo Lloris between the sticks after the Frenchman missed the match through illness.
Now, it has been confirmed that Vorm will be assessed by the club as Spurs will be looking to pick up another three points in the race to clinch an unlikely Premier League crown.

For the majority of the season, Vorm has been backup to Lloris, who has been a calming influence behind the defence.
The Holland international has played only 11 games in all competitions, securing an impressive seven clean sheets during those matches.

Furthermore, he has played five Premier League matches as Lloris could replace him in the starting XI if he is fit for the weekend.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side are hoping to close the seven-point gap on leaders Chelsea, who travel to Bournemouth later on Saturday.
Spurs will host Watford at White Hart Lane in the early kick-off as they have the opportunity to put some pressure on their London rivals by narrowing the gap to four points.
Pochettino has guided his team to an unbeaten run on home soil this term, which has included wins against the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City.
In other Tottenham news, this 26-year-old could be sidelined until the end of the month.
