Tottenham Hotspur face a defensive crisis after Ledley King and Sebastien Bassong were both injured in the 3-0 defeat at Chelsea.

King picked up a hamstring injury, while Bassong left the field in a neck brace after his head hit the ground hard.  They join Jonathan Woodgate and Michael Dawson on the sidelines, with both still not ready to return.

Redknapp said: “Bassong doesn’t look too good. He’s got a bang on his head and his eye is all swollen up.

“The doctor has taken him to hospital and it doesn’t look too clever.

“That’s four centre-halves we’ve got out now. Jonathan Woodgate is still nowhere near playing again and Michael Dawson is also out.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Harry got rid of players like Gunter and Chimponda, for peanuts, who easily could fill up the CD positions after the crisis injuries. He insists on using the same players in spite of the fact that they simply do not perform. Players like Pav, Gio, Bale and even Dervite must be given their chances. Whether Harry rates them or not they are very talented players and given their chances they will prove it.
