Tom Huddlestone will miss Tottenham’s FA Cup quarter final at Fulham on Saturday after being ruled out for at least a week with damaged ankle ligaments.

The midfielder, who has been a regular feature in Tottenham’s league match, will see a specialist tomorrow to discuss his rehabilitation options having picked up the injury in Spurs’ 2-1 win over Everton on Sunday. Huddlestone’s absence leaves Harry Redknapp with a bit of a conundrum to solve in midfield for the trip to Craven Cottage.

Jermaine Jenas is shortly to have an operation on his injured groin and will out for a while. With Wilson Palacios one booking away from a suspension, it remains to be seen whether Redknapp will risk playing the Honduran in central midfield. Who lines up alongside him is also unclear. Vedran Corluka, Younes Kaboul, Luka Modric or Niko Krancjar are all possible options, whilst Eidur Gudjohnsen could be asked to play deeper than normal.

Spurs are definitely without Aaron Lennon. The England winger will be out for six weeks after tearing fibres in his groin in training last week.
