Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon could be out of action for "weeks" after suffering a suspected torn hamstring in the Barclays Premier League match against Sunderland, manager Harry Redknapp has said.

Lennon came off during the first half of Spurs' 1-0 win against the Black Cats and is now likely to be missing over the club's festive season and beyond. The former Leeds player's absence will be a big flow for Tottenham, particularly as they face rivals Chelsea at White Hart Lane on Thursday.

"Lennon felt the tear. He has no chance for Thursday," Redknapp said.
