Tottenham dealt huge injury blow during Burnley clash

Tottenham have been dealt a massive injury blow during their Premier League clash with Burnley at Turf Moor.

Antonio Conte’s side are currently locked in action with the Lancashire outfit, looking to add to their impressive win against Manchester City at the weekend, in what was a statement win for their chances of finishing in the top four and guarantee Champions League football next season in the process.

It has been a game of few chances however, with a Harry Kane header coming back off the Burnley crossbar by far the closest either side have come to scoring.

But there was a more worrying issue.

Bentancur pulls up lame

The issue began early into the first half, when winter addition Rodrigo Bentancur, who was excellent against Manchester City, was left wrong-footed by a smart turn by Josh Brownhill.

And while he was able to continue until half time, he could not carry on any further, making way for Harry Winks at the interval.

This leaves Antonio Conte with a headache should it prove to rule the Uruguayan out for longer than the period between this and the next game, since Bentancur had already become a pivotal part of the Spurs side in his short stint with the north London outfit.

With a trip to Elland Road and the energetic Leeds United at the weekend, Bentancur could prove a big miss.
