Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that Nacer Chadli will be sidelined for the next six weeks.
The winger was stretchered off during the 0-0 draw against Liverpool at the weekend with what appeared to be an ankle injury.
Subsequent assessment has revealed that the 26-year-old has damaged his ligaments, which has ruled him out of action until the beginning of December.
"Further assessment and investigation has confirmed that @NChadli suffered ankle ligament damage vs. Liverpool," read a statement on the club's official Twitter feed.
"The @BelRedDevils midfielder was forced off with the injury and is expected to be sidelined for around six weeks."
The 26-year-old has made 11 appearances in all competitions for Spurs this season, scoring one goal in the process.
