Tottenham look set to be without England winger Andros Townsend for the hectic festive period after he injured his hamstring in the club's 2-1 Capital Cup quarter-final defeat by West Ham.

The England international pulled up after 72 minutes of Thursday's match and Tim Sherwood, Spurs's caretaker manager, confirmed that injury is likely to keep the 22-year-old out for a considerable time.

"It doesn't look good," interim manager Tim Sherwood said.
