Harry Winks could miss Tuesday’s game (Picture: Getty)Tottenham are sweating on the fitness of midfielder Harry Winks ahead of Tuesday’s trip to the Etihad to face Manchester City in the Champions League.
The England international started in Wednesday’s 1-0 win against Pep Guardiola’s side but was replaced by Victor Wanyama late on.
Mauricio Pochettino made seven changes for Spurs’ Premier League clash against Huddersfield at home on Saturday, thanks in part to injuries sustained by Harry Kane and Dele Alli.
However, while the likes of Toby Alderweireld and Heung-Min Son made the bench, there was no sign of Winks.
📋 #THFC: Lloris (C), Foyth, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies, Walker-Peters, Wanyama, Sissoko, Eriksen, Lucas, Llorente.

The midfielder was ruled out of the matchday squad as he’s carrying a groin problem and Spurs are understandably worried it could rule him out of the second leg at the Etihad.
Alli missed the game against the Terriers with a wrist injury but could return for the game against City.
Wanyama gave Spurs the lead against Huddersfield before Lucas Moura doubled it shortly after to make it 2-0 at half-time.
