Eric Dier picked up an elbow injury in the Champions league clash with Juventus and is a doubt for the Premier League game away at Bournemouth on Sunday.
The injury news was confirmed on the official Tottenham Twitter page on Friday lunchtime.

Dier has played all 29 Premier League games for Tottenham this season, starting 28 of them.
He’s formed a solid partnership with Mousa Dembele in the middle of the park, and would be a big loss.
Football Insider verdict:
We don’t want to do disservice to Bournemouth, who have found a place in mid-table and should avoid relegation this season, but there are worse games that Dier could miss. His services often go unheralded in the Tottenham team – Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Heung-Min Son get all the plaudits, while Dembele is the rock in midfield. But Dier does a good job and Pochettino will be hoping he can call on him for Sunday’s trip to the south coast.
