Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino will be anxiously awaiting the scan results of young English midfielder Harry Winks, over fears that an ankle injury could rule him out for the rest of the season, according to the Evening Standard.
The 21-year-old suffered damage to his ankle during Saturday’s 2-0 away win at relegation battlers Burnley. A tackle with Burnley’s Irish full-back Stephen Ward caused him to fall into the home dugout.
Pochettino said on Winks’ injury:
He is in hospital now, doing scans. Now we need to wait,
We wish it is not a big issue and we hope it’s not a big problem for the future for him.
The defensive midfielder eventually left the field, receiving oxygen, and was taken to hospital.
The absence of Winks for the rest of the season would be a blow to Pochettino due to the impressive role he has played in the team this season. A product of the Spurs youth system, Winks has seen his playing time increase over the last three seasons since making his first team debut in the Europa League, during the 2014-2015 season.
Kenyan midfielder Victor Wanyama is another midfielder who is doubtful for Wednesday’s trip to Swansea. Wanyama was also substituted off against Burnley, suffering with a back problem.
