Reliable journalist: Tottenham concern over star with high chance of injury recurrence

Tottenham Hotspur centre-back Toby Alderweireld is to undergo a scan on his injured hamstring in two weeks.

The 28-year-old defender injured his hamstring and was substituted during the first half of the sensational 3-1 Champions League win over Real Madrid at Wembley on November 1.

Kristof Terreur, a journalist who is an expert on the Belgian players in the Premier League, broke the news on his official Twitter page on Friday afternoon.

Terreur stated that Spurs are being very careful as the chances of the injury reoccurring are high.

The injury was a significant blow for Spurs as the Belgian international had been a key player for Mauricio Pochettino’s side, making 15 appearances in all competitions.

Midfielder Eric Dier has been playing in the Spurs back-three alongside Davinson Sanchez and Jan Vertonghen in Alderweireld’s absence.

They travel to Watford in Premier League action on Saturday afternoon, looking to bounce back from their 2-1 defeat at Leicester on Tuesday.

Spurs have taken one point out of a possible nine from their last three league matches and have fallen to seventh place in the Premier League table.
