Tottenham fans were left fearing the worst after Christian Eriksen was stretchered off during Denmark's friendly win against Norway this evening.

Eriksen, who joined Tottenham from Ajax over the summer, came off after 41 minutes having taken a blow on the right ankle. He was spotted afterwards leaving the stadium on crutches with his ankle heavily bandaged.

Denmark coach Morten Olsen confirmed the 21-year-old has suffered an ankle ligament injury, and revealed it could keep him out of action for over a month.

He said: "We don't know if he's out for four or six weeks or how long it will take. It's bad for him at a new club."

If that proves to be the case Eriksen will miss a string of key games for Tottenham, including their trip to Manchester City after the international break and the game against Manchester United at White Hart Lane.

The news comes as a bad time for Tottenham as they seek to find a solution to their goal scoring problem.

Andre Villas-Boas's side have mustered just nine goals in 11 Premier League games so far, and went into the international break with a 1-0 home defeat against Newcastle.

Despite their troubles in front of goal, Spurs are just three points off Liverpool in second place and five points adrift of leaders and rivals Arsenal.
