Antonio Conte is concerned about a possible injury to Richarlison following Tottenham Hotspur’s 3-2 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt in the Champions League.
Spurs needed a victory to boost their chances of making it to the knockout stage.
They fell behind early after Daichi Kamada struck in the 14th minute but responded strongly by netting three quick goals before the interval.
Heung-min Son bagged a brace while Harry Kane also converted his penalty to score his first Champions League goal this season.
Despite being reduced to ten men after Tuta’s red card, the visitors created a late scare by scoring a goal through Faride Alidou.
However, Conte’s men held on for an important victory. The Italian boss was happy with the result but expressed concern about a possible knee injury to Richarlison.
Tottenham Hotspur paid £50 million to sign Richarlison from Everton in the summer transfer window.
The Brazilian played a key role last season in helping the Toffees avoid relegation from the Premier League.
His levels have not dropped at Spurs as he has made a solid start to life in north London, scoring two goals and contributing three assists in 12 appearances across all competitions.
The forward was also impressive in the recent Champions League victory against Eintracht Frankfurt. He showed great movement and was involved in the build-up to the opening goal.
It will be a big blow for Tottenham if he remains sidelined for some time due to the knee issue.
