Tottenham's injury crisis deepened on Thursday night with the news Rafael van der Vaart is likely to miss the club's next three games with a hamstring injury.

Van der Vaart has played a key part in Tottenham's impressive form recently, but struggled to make an impact in the 1-1 draw against Chelsea and had to come off at half-time after complaining of a hamstring injury.

It is not the first time the Dutchman has spent a spell on the sidelines due to a hamstring complaint, and he is now doubtful for the upcoming games against Norwich, Swansea and West Brom, Harry Redknapp confirmed after the game. "I'd think he would be out for the festive period," the Spurs boss said.
