WHAT HAPPENED? The Brazil international limped out of the stadium after suffering a calf injury in the 52nd minute against former side Everton. After the match, he was seen walking with crutches and even admitted that his World Cup dream hangs by a thread. However, later on, he posted a positive message on his Instagram which should console Tottenham and Brazil fans.

WHAT THEY SAID: “Thank you for all the messages,” said Richarlison. “Everything is going to be alright.”

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The forward now faces a race against time to be fit for the upcoming World Cup which kicks off on November 20 in Qatar. The 25-year-old is an integral member of Tite's squad and would have started the tournament as his side's go-to striker.
