Spurs' Toby Alderweireld set for scan on hamstring injury vs. Real Madrid

LONDON - Toby Alderweireld says he will have a scan in the coming days after limping off with a hamstring problem in the first half of Tottenham's 3-1 win against Real Madrid on Wednesday.

The Belgium defender was replaced by Moussa Sissoko after pulling-up in the 24th-minute, with Eric Dier moving into the back-three.

Afterwards, Alderweireld confirmed he had suffered a hamstring problem and did not sound confident of featuring in Sunday's Premier League match at Crystal Palace.

"It doesn't feel very good," he said. "We'll have to see in the next couple of days how it feels. Something happened, there's no chance I could have played on.

"In the next couple of games, I'll have a scan and we'll take it from there."

Manager Mauricio Pochettino confirmed that Alderweireld is already a doubt for Sunday after picking up the injury.

He said: "He felt something in his hamstring. After tomorrow we will assess him. Sure for Sunday, it's difficult, but we'll see after we assess him in the next few days."

The victory sealed Spurs' progress to the Champions League knockouts and condemned Real to a first group-stage defeat since October 2012.
