Moises Caicedo missed last week’s draw with Bournemouth after returning late from international duty.
It seemed a case of fatigue, plus a minor thigh problem he had picked up playing for Ecuador. We expected him to have all week to recover and be comfortable ready for Sunday’s game against Aston Villa.
But it seems the injury was worse than suspected. As Pochettino revealed in his press conference today, Caicedo has been training individually rather than with the group, and will do tests tomorrow to check whether he’s ready for the weekend.
