Pochettino allays Kane injury fears
Harry Kane limped off clutching his hamstring late in Tottenham's 4-1 win over Liverpool. The England striker scored twice as Spurs ran riot at Wembley, but was replaced by Fernando Llorente after 88 minutes, seemingly with a hamstring injury. Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino allayed injury fears after the game, insisting Kane was 'tired' after playing three games in a week.
Pizarro sidelined with thigh injury
Koln are set to be without striker Claudio Pizarro for a spell after he sustained a right thigh injury during the warm-up to the scoreless draw against Werder Bremen. Selected to start for the first time under coach Peter Stoger since signing as a free agent just over three weeks ago, the 39-year-old Peruvian international was unable to add to his two previous appearances as a substitute.
Wijnaldum ruled out of Tottenham clash
Georginio Wijnaldum was ruled out of Liverpool's meeting with Tottenham Hotspur due to a knee injury sustained in training. After picking up the knock on Saturday, the midfielder was assessed but the Premier League game came too soon for the Dutchman to feature in the squad against Spurs.
"Gini got a knock on his knee yesterday. It's nothing serious but very painful," said Jurgen Klopp ahead of the clash in London. "We couldn't do it overnight. It's not a big thing but the time was too short from yesterday to today, so he's not even involved in the squad."
Evans set for scan on groin injury
Northern Ireland defender Jonny Evans will have a scan on a groin injury on Sunday. The 29-year-old centre half had to be withdrawn during the first half of West Brom's 1-0 defeat at Southampton on Saturday evening. "Jonny's injury is his groin, so we're not sure until we scan it tomorrow," West Brom manager Tony Pulis said. "Obviously everyone in Northern Ireland will be a little bit concerned about Jonny, and we are a little bit concerned."
Heynckes awaiting news on Muller injury
Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes hopes Thomas Muller's injury is no more than cramp after the forward lasted just 10 minutes of his side's 1-0 win at Hamburg. Muller came on as a second-half substitute, replacing James Rodriguez, but had to be withdrawn soon after with Heynckes sending Thiago Alcantara on for the Germany star. When asked why he took Muller off, Heynckes told Sky Germany: "He had a cramp. I hope it's only that. We have to wait until the check-up tomorrow."
Chandler suffers knee injury
Timothy Chandler could be set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines after sustaining what appeared to be a knee ligament injury in Eintracht Frankfurt's thrilling 2-2 draw with Borussia Dortmund. The 27-year-old right-back landed awkwardly off the ball in the 36th minute, before being helped from the field of play by two members of Eintracht's medical team.
Phil Jones limps off with leg injury
Manchester United could be without defender Phil Jones for a while after he suffered an injury in Saturday's Premier League match against Huddersfield Town. Jones appeared to injure his leg while making a last-ditch tackle and as he walked down the tunnel, he told reporters he'd picked up a problem with his quadriceps. The English defender had only just returned from a spell on the sidelines, spending the UEFA Champions League fixture against Benfica on the bench as a result.
Balogun suffers injury
Leon Balogun was injured in Mainz 2-0 defeat to Schalke on Friday in the German Bundesliga encounter. The defender was replaced in the 79th minute by Kenan Kodro due to a 'suspected cheek bone fracture'. Goals from Leon Goretzka and Austria international, Guido Burgstaller secured the maximum points for the Royal Blues in the clash.
Bernat resumes training
Bayern Munich left-back Juan Bernat returned to individual training on Friday, three months after undergoing ankle surgery. The 24-year-old, who tore ligaments in his left ankle in the preseason defeat to AC Milan in July, took part in mini drills with and without the ball. Bayern have not put a timescale on his return to first-team action, however.
Injury blow for Celtic
Celtic will have to continue to cope without defender Jozo Simunovic for at least the rest of October due to injury. The Bosnian centre-back has not appeared for the Bhoys since the 3-0 Champions League group win over Anderlecht in late September. Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers confirmed that he would be unavailable for selection ahead of this weekend's League Cup semi-final against Hibernian. "It's a repeat of what he had before so probably out for a few weeks," Rodgers told the media.
Billing to miss up to 12 weeks
Huddersfield Town's Philip Billing faces the prospect of surgery and up to 12 weeks out and after twisting his right ankle in the team's 2-0 loss at Swansea City last Saturday. The Danish midfielder, who has made seven league appearances for the club this season, was carried off on a stretcher on the hour-mark at the Liberty Stadium. Meanwhile, Benin forward Steve Mounie, who helped the team make a strong start to the season, could return to the starting line-up on Saturday after missing five games in all competitions with a heel injury.
Kruse returns to training
Werder Bremen striker Max Kruse has returned to training for the first time since breaking his collarbone over five weeks ago. The 29-year-old suffered the injury after landing awkwardly following a challenge with Schalke defender Thilo Kehrer on Matchday 4. Kruse was expected to be sidelined for two months, but Werder confirmed that Kruse has travelled with the rest of the squad ahead of Sunday's match at Koln.
Jagr leaves game with lower-body injury
Calgary Flames left winger Jaromir Jagr left Saturday's game against the Minnesota Wild after the first period because of a lower-body injury. The 45-year-old is 52 games away from becoming the NHL's all-time leader in games played. He is second in career points behind Wayne Gretzky (2,857) with 1,916. Jagr has two assists in five games since signing as a free agent with Calgary at the end of training camp.
Fowler goes down with injury
Anaheim Ducks defensemen Cam Fowler, who missed the opening round of last season's playoffs with a right knee injury, appeared to be favoring the same knee after absorbing a hit and going into the boards in the first period of a game against the Montreal Canadiens on Friday night. Fowler, who signed an eight-year, $52-million contract extension this offseason, skated off the ice with the help of teammates and did not return.

Teodosic leaves game with foot injury
Los Angeles Clippers rookie guard Milos Teodosic left Saturday's game against the Phoenix Suns in the second quarter because of a left foot injury.

Chris Paul out 2-4 weeks
Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul will miss two to four weeks due to a bruised left knee, according to multiple reports on Friday. The nine-time All-Star was hampered by the knee in Tuesday's season-opening victory over the Golden State Warriors before sitting out the following night's game against the Sacramento Kings.
Houston coach Mike D'Antoni downplayed the seriousness of the injury earlier Friday when he revealed Paul would miss Saturday's game against the Dallas Mavericks. "It's only a bump," D'Antoni said. "It's not a tear or something like that. It's a bruise. We just have to make sure he's 100 percent the next time he plays."

Packers place Rodgers on IR
The Green Bay Packers placed quarterback Aaron Rodgers on injured reserve Friday, one day after he underwent surgery to repair his broken right collarbone. Rodgers was injured in the first quarter of last Sunday's 23-10 loss at Minnesota after taking a hard hit from Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr. Though the Packers placed Rodgers on IR, they still could bring him back after eight weeks and give him a chance to return for the Week 15 game at Carolina on Dec. 17.

Lewis Hamilton stormed to pole position for the United States Grand Prix, ahead of title rival Sebastian Vettel. Valtteri Bottas had to settle for third in the other Mercedes.

Alonso confirmed at McLaren for 2018
Fernando Alonso will continue to race for McLaren in Formula 1 next year, the parties confirmed on Thursday, ahead of the United States Grand Prix, bringing speculation over his future to an end. Alonso rejoined McLaren on a three-year deal in 2015, for the start of the outfit's latest partnership with power unit supplier Honda, which returned to the sport after an absence. However, ambitions to rekindle the title-winning partnership went unfulfilled. McLaren announced last month that it would split from Honda and align itself with Renault for 2018, but Alonso explained that he was still weighing up his options.
