Tottenham face injury problems ahead of Newcastle clash

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is facing a selection headache before his side’s trip to Newcastle on Sunday, with a number of players picking up injuries during the week.

Emmanuel Adebayor is a serious doubt after damaging his hamstring and is unlikely to play for fear of aggravating the injury. Redknapp told The Guardian Adebayor’s chances were “touch and go.”

Niko Kranjcar and Vedran Corluka are also doubts, with the duo requiring scans to see if they will be fit for Sunday, and Sandro could also miss out after suffering a calf problem.

Redknapp also expressed concern over the number of hamstring problems midfielder Rafael van der Vaart has had since he joined the club.

“He sometimes has a problem with that and he’s had a few hamstrings since he’s been with us,” said Redknapp.
