Eriksen had played every minute of the club’s season until Wednesday’s win over Watford in the League Cup.

Dele Alli played in Eriksen’s position during the victory, winning and converting a penalty kick.

He has two assists in six matches as Spurs recorded a 4W-2L record to open the Premier League campaign.

Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm are also out, meaning Paulo Gazzaniga is likely to get another start.
