Tottenham are increasingly confident that the injury to Cristian Romero is not that serious and there is a likelihood that he could feature in their game against Fulham on Monday night.

The 25-year-old limped out in Argetina's 2-0 win against Peru and initial concerns were that he might have picked up an ankle injury but he says his withdrawal was more of caution than of damage.

The Spurs defender told La Voz (via Sport Witness): “That’s why I decided to come out at half-time, as we also have an important home game with Tottenham Hotspur on Monday against Fulham. But this is a team of animals (Argentina) and whoever comes in is sure to be a cracker."

Romero has been outstanding at the start of this season and his efforts since joining the club and has been rewarded with a promotion as one of the club's leaders and it's easy to see he's desperate to help the club continue their strong start to the campaign.

The Lilywhites also have injury concerns when it comes to captain Son Heung-min even though reports that he might also be ready despite limping through his country's game against Vietnam in the international break.

Brennan Johnson who has missed the last two games due to a hamstring injury picked up against Arsenal in the North London is also likely to return after staying back to work on his fitness.
