Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Mousa Dembele will, as expected, miss the Champions League clash with PSV Eindhoven on Tuesday evening having picked up an injury in the game at the weekend against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The 31-year-old was replaced by Son Heung-Min in the seventh minute of the first half with an ankle injury and manager Mauricio Pochettino has now ruled him out of the clash tomorrow.
“We need to wait today after the scan to have a better idea. The most important thing is he didn’t suffer an injury to his bone. That is good. Maybe his ligament is damaged but we need to know – today after the scan we will know better.”

The game was the Belgian’s 250th club appearance following his £15million arrival from Fulham back at the end of August 2012 and that wouldn’t have been the way he’d have wanted to celebrate it.
Whether he makes Crystal Palace is open to debate, but fingers crossed he’ll be back in contention following the November international break.
In other PSV injury news, Eric Dier (thigh), Danny Rose (groin), Jan Vertonghen (hamstring) and Victor Wanyama (knee) are all expected to miss the clash as well.
