Tottenham Hotspur full-back Ben Davies will be assessed for a possible concussion after suffering a head blow in the Europa League defeat to Borussia Dortmund. The Wales international was replaced by Danny Rose after 13 minutes of the first half following a collision with goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.
Davies was initially cleared to resume playing after being treated on the field following the coming together with the Spurs captain. But after complaining of dizziness the 22-year-old was taken off as a precautionary measure.
The former Swansea City defender now faces tests to determine his fitness for the Premier League visit of AFC Bournemouth on Sunday but is expected to sit the game out. Midfielder Eric Dier is likely to be available for Tottenham however despite limping through the close minutes of the game with a groin injury.
"Ben is ok now," Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino told reporters. "We need to assess him in the next few days. He got a knock to his face and afterwards coming into the pitch again he started to feel dizzy and we take him off for a precaution. Now he is ok but now we need to wait and assess him in the next few days but now he feels well. [Dier] has a knock but we hope that he is ok for Sunday."
Mousa Dembele, Kyle Walker and Christian Eriksen were all rested for the 2-1 defeat at White Hart Lane, which saw Tottenham crash out of Europe. Top scorer Harry Kane was also an unused substitute and Pochettino was thrilled to come through the game relatively unscathed ahead of the final eight games of the Premier League season
"It is important because we are in a period after eight months that we start to compete in the season and it is tough," added the Argentine coach, whose Tottenham side are five points adrift of leaders Leicester City. "We need to look after all the players.
"It is true that I am happy because they all finished the game in good condition and now it is important to be ready on Sunday, we have another tough game. The Premier League is tough, it pushes you to give your best and we ned to arrive fresh and try and take the three points."
