Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen sustained medial collateral knee ligament damage in his side's 3-1 win at Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Vertonghen was substituted 15 minutes from time at Selhurst Park, having fallen awkwardly following a clash with Palace striker Connor Wickham.

On Monday, the Football Association charged Wickham with violent conduct in relation to the incident, where he appeared to swing an elbow at Vertonghen.

And the Belgium defender, a Premier League ever-present for Spurs this season, is now set for a significant spell on the sidelines, although the club did not confirm the expected length of his absence.
