Tottenham head coach Andre Villas-Boas has revealed that Kyle Walker was forced off in the 2-1 against Manchester City because of a hamstring injury.

The full back was replaced by Michael Dawson with just over 10 minutes remaining in the match.

“It was an injury situation as he felt his hamstring was tight,” Villas-Boas said.

“We didn’t want to risk losing him for three or four weeks.

“We held on for a couple of minutes when he gave us the sign but we took him off.

Walker has now subsequently pulled out of England’s squad for the game against Sweden on Wednesday.
