Tottenham's injury problems appear to be mounting up after Dele Alli was forced off with a suspected hamstring injury in Sunday's 2-1 win at Fulham.

Spurs are already without Harry Kane until March due to an ankle injury, and may also have to make do without Alli in the coming weeks after his enforced substitution at Craven Cottage.

Alli was clutching his left hamstring as he went down under a challenge from Ryan Sessegnon before careering into the advertising hoardings.

The England international midfielder, who had earlier levelled the scores at 1-1, was replaced by Georges-Kevin N'Koudou with four minutes of the game remaining.

Speaking post-match, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino said: "I think we all saw that it is surely a left hamstring injury. We hope it's not a massive problem but we'll see. We need to assess it in the next few days."

Tottenham already have Lucas Moura, Moussa Sissoko and Victor Wanyama on the treatment table, while Heung-Min Son is unavailable until next month due to South Korea's participation at the Asian Cup.

Third-placed Tottenham left it late to beat Fulham, with Harry Winks heading in an added-time winner as they moved back to within nine points of Premier League leaders Liverpool.
