Harry Redknapp admits that Tottenham Hotspur are running out of central midfielders after Tom Huddlestone was stretchered off during the 2-1 win against Everton.
Huddlestone is said to have sprained his ankle, but will undergo a scan to find out the extent of the damage.Â Meanwhile, Jermaine Jenas will undergo an operation on Wednesday.
Wilson Palacios has picked up nine bookings this season and another would mean a suspension.
Redknapp said: “You’re going to miss Tom – he’s a top player for us, he’s makes us play and he’s a great passer and we needed that when we were going through that dodgy little spell. It was important we tried to get hold of the ball.
“We don’t know how bad his injury is at the moment but it doesn’t look good.
“He’ll have a scan and we’ll see how it is but we are running out of central midfield players – we’ve only got three anyway. It’s not an ideal situation and it’s an area we’ve been light on all season really.”
