Andros Townsend facing lengthy lay-off after suffering hamstring injury

Andros Townsend is likely to miss to miss Tottenham Hotspur's entire Christmas period after he sustained a hamstring injury during the 2-1 home defeat by West Ham United in the Capital One Cup on Thursday.

The England international pulled up after 72 minutes of Thursday's match and Tim Sherwood, Spurs's caretaker manager, confirmed that injury is likely to keep the 22-year-old out for a considerable time.

"It looked like he pulled up with a hamstring," Sherwood said.

The news will be a blow for Roy Hodgson, the England manager, with other key members of his likely starting XI such as Steven Gerrard and Daniel Sturridge also currently missing through injury, though Hodgson recently suggested that he would rather his players get injured now, giving them an enforced winter break, than closer to next summer's World Cup in Brazil.

Townsend is likely to be out for three weeks meaning he will miss Premier League matches against Southampton, West Bromwich Albion, Stoke City, Manchester United and Crystal Palace as well as the FA Cup third round tie at Arsenal.
