No break for Spurs ace
Spurs have received some good news on the injury front, after it was revealed that new signing Etienne Capoue has not broken his leg.
There were fears that the France midfielder, who was stretchered off in the defeat to Arsenal on Sunday, had suffered a fracture but, following some early scans, that is not the case.
Capoue has though pulled out of the France squad for their World Cup qualifiers this week and he may yet have some ligament damage, so he may face a spell on the sidelines.
The international break does give him more time to recover, as Tottenham don't now have a game until Saturday September 14, when Andre Villas Boas' men entertain Norwich.
