Tottenham have confirmed that Nacer Chadli will miss the next six weeks after suffering ankle ligament damage in the goalless draw with Liverpool.

The Belgian, who was reportedly already expected to be unavailable for four weeks, was removed on a stretcher eight minutes into the encounter at White Hart Lane following a heavy collision.

His absence will be the latest to undermine manager Mauricio Pochettino, who is already without Ryan Mason, Nabil Bentaleb and Son Heung-min - respectively owing to knee, ankle and foot injuries - for tonight's Europa League game with Anderlecht.
