Ivan Perisic appears to have allayed any injury fears the Tottenham Hotspur supporters may have had for him ahead of the north London derby at Arsenal next weekend.
The Spurs fans took to social media in the aftermath of Croatia’s 2-1 victory at home against Denmark on Thursday, concerned that a ‘challenge’ by another Tottenham player in Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg had caused an injury for Perisic.

The 33-year-old had run into the back of the Danish midfielder and not too long after, in the 71st minute, Perisic walked off gingerly around the pitch with a couple of Croatia staff on either side having been substituted.
But in a move which should allay any Tottenham fans’ fears, Perisic has taken to Instagram to show everyone he seems to be doing just fine. The image shows Perisic controlling the ball on the run and, seemingly, taking part in full training.
