Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas was trying to remain positive about a trio of players who sustained injuries in the 3-0 Europa League win over Tromso on Thursday night.

Mousa Dembele was hacked down from behind and required a stretcher to leave the pitch, Younes Kaboul hobbled off with an adductor problem five minutes from time and Danny Rose suffered an ankle injury at White Hart Lane giving Villas-Boas a few issues ahead of the weekend’s trip to Cardiff City.

"Dembele should be okay," Villas-Boas said.

"He felt a lot of pain when he was brought down, but now he's steady.

"Younes felt muscle tightness in his adductor and we decided to take him off. He was struggling but he didn't rupture anything.

"We have to be a little bit more careful with Danny Rose. We hope it's not serious.

"We have to give him one night to see the reaction of his ankle. He is in doubt for Sunday but he should be okay."
