Spurs are suffering a midfield injury crisis ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup tie with Fulham, as Jermain Jenas and Aaron Lennon have been confirmed as long term absentees.
Jenas has been sent for an operation on his groin, whilst Lennon’s groin problem will keep him out for another six weeks.
With Tom Huddlestone stretchered off against Everton and David Bentley missing the game with yet another groin injury, Spurs are lacking in midfield options as they hope to continue their push for the FA Cup as well as their league position.
Spurs are sweating over the extent of Huddlestone’s injury, as the influential playmaker is set to under-go scans on his ankle and foot today.
Harry Redknapp has been left with a lot of frustration as the injury list piles up, revealing the extent of his problems.
“David Bentley has a tear in his groin and Lennon’s got to rest for six weeks. We are picking up knocks to key players.
“Jenas looks like having an operation on Wednesday.”
