Tottenham midfielder Dembele likely to be out until 2019

Dembele is the latest Tottenham central midfielder to be struck down by injury this season

The 31-year-old Belgium worldwide was forced off in the first half of Tottenham's 3-2 win at Wolverhampton Wanderers and missed Tuesday's 2-1 Champions League victory over Dutch side PSV Eindhoven.

Dembele is out of contract in the summer and has been linked with a move away in January, with the Belgium midfielder appearing to have no interest in signing a new deal.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said Thursday that the club are lucky to be playing their home games at Wembley even as they wait for their new stadium to be finished.

Unsurprisingly, Pochettino said he would prefer to keep his players at the club, but added how he managed them would be crucial.

Spurs make the trip to Selhurst Park on Saturday for what will be their fifth game in 13 days and last before the November internationals.

The Kenya midfielder has been restricted to three substitute appearances in the Premier League this season, but Spurs confirmed he has returned to training following a knee injury.

However, Rose and Vertonghen remain out.

"And that starts to create your motivation and inspires you to feel happy, optimistic and to translate a very good energy".

"We will see what the evolution is, it may be a situation that can change quickly and be positive".

They played 90 minutes in midweek - and are both heading on worldwide duty - so Pochettino must decide whether to risk them at Selhurst Park.

"It was a tough game against PSV in the Champions League". It will be tough to play two games.

"We need to be grateful for Wembley, because without Wembley now we play where?" he said. It is play, play, then move them there and play again.
