Kieran Trippier injured vs Crystal Palace
Tottenham claimed three points at Crystal Palace last weekend in the Premier League, however Spurs lost defender Kieran Trippier in the first half.
Trippier was subbed out the game in the 23rd minute for Serge Aurier.
Tottenham fans are still waiting for a full diagnosis on their full-back, but there has been a limited update on Tuesday.
Tottenham’s Trippier out for England
It’s been confirmed that Kieran Trippier has withdrawn from the England squad during the current international break.
It’s further been confirmed that Trippier sustained a groin injury in the Crystal Palace match.
Trippier had to report to the England get-together after being called-up by Gareth Southgate.
Yet he’s now been released back to Spurs to work on his rehabilitation.
It’s unclear how long Trippier will remain on the sidelines.
However, considering it’s a groin injury, the defender could be sidelined for 2-3 weeks.
[@MailSport] now understand Kieran Trippier’s injury has now been assessed by Tottenham Hotspur and it is not thought to be serious.

Why are so many Tottenham players getting injured?
The injury list at Tottenham is starting to get ridiculous.
Spurs recently lost midfielder Mousa Dembele to an ankle injury against Wolves. Dembele is set to be out until the new year.
At the back, Jan Vertonghen is out with a thigh injury while Danny Rose has been missing with a groin problem.
Moreover, Davinson Sanchez missed the Crystal Palace match with a hamstring injury.
While Mauricio Pochettino has lost the likes of Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, Victor Wanyama and Eric Dier in recent weeks to injury too.
So why are Spurs suffering so many injuries this season?
The theory doing the rounds is that Tottenham are paying the price for their players being so successful at last summer’s World Cup finals in Russia.
