Potential injury blow for Pochettino as 25-year-old limps off on Friday

Tottenham have been given another fitness worry following the news that Eric Dier was forced to limp off with an injury during the first half of England’s European qualifier against the Czech Republic.

As reported by Football.London, the 25-year-old required treatment after he was fouled by Czech midfielder Tomas Soucek, only 10 minutes into the match as England kicked off their Group A affair at Wembley stadium.

The midfielder has already been troubled by injuries for much of this season, after recently making a return to action following a long spell on the sidelines.

Even though he attempted to play on with the injury, Dier was substituted after 16 minutes with England coach Gareth Southgate choosing to replace him with Chelsea star Ross Barkley.

With England’s next fixture only three days away, it remains very unlikely that Dier will be able to make a return against Montenegro on Monday.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side will be facing Liverpool right after the international break and the Tottenham boss will be hoping to have his key midfielder available for the trip to Anfield.
