Everton striker Ayegbeni Yakubu has been ruled out for the rest of the season after rupturing his Achilles.
Toffees manager David Moyes confirmed the injury after watching his side win 1-0 at Tottenham.
Nigeria international Yakubu lasted just 11 minutes before hobbling down the tunnel after coming off second-best in a challenge with Ledley King.
Moyes also indicated Louis Saha - only recently returned from injury - could miss significant time with an injured hamstring.
Moyes said: "The victory has hit us really hard."
