Tottenham's injury worries deepened ahead of Wednesday's crucial game against Everton with the news that Ledley King is facing yet another spell on the sidelines due to a suspected hamstring tear.

King has not played for Spurs since their 1-1 draw against Chelsea on December 22 as he has struggled to return to full fitness because of his chronic knee troubles.

It was hoped that the 31-year-old, who played just nine games last season, would return at centre-back for Wednesday's huge Barclays Premier League game against the Toffees, but King pulled up in training on Friday holding his hamstring, however, and manager Harry Redknapp fears the defender has suffered a tear.
