Spurs midfielder Etienne Capoue has not suffered a fracture of left fibula [L'Equipe]
It was a pretty disastrous day for Tottenham.
Gareth Bale’s departure was expected of course. But losing 1-0 at the Emirates when dominating possession is rare for Spurs in a north London derby and will have been all the more galling considering the trend of their first two league games continued at Arsenal.
Tottenham are yet to score from open play in the Premier League this season and much will depend on the likes of Erik Lamela and Christian Eriksen to create with so many powerful midfielders.
So far, the big success from Spurs’ seven incoming players has been French midfielder Etienne Capoue, so watching him depart on a stretcher taking in oxygen in the second half at Arsenal was a blow, despite the fact he was replaced by Sandro, a more than capable (current) understudy.
L’Equipe therefore provide some good news late on Sunday evening. Etienne Capoue has pulled out of the France squad but has not broken or suffered a fracture to his leg.
Whilst there may be ligament damage, this is a small glimmer of good news for Spurs fans on a distressing day.
