Deep peroneal nerve/anterior tibial nerve:
Branch of common popliteal  motor branches go to extensor hallucis longus, tibialis anterior, extensor digitorum longus and peroneus tertius muscles. Sensory nerve  descends along with anterior tibial artery onto dorsum of foot between extensor hallucis longus and extensor digitorum longus – at 1 cm above ankle divides into medial and lateral branches  innervate anterior ankle. Medial branch  passes along lateral to dorsalis pedis  innervates second interspace. Lateral branch  motor branch to extensor digitorum brevis – sensory branches  forefoot - variable
