Premier League - Tottenham suffer 'significant' Paulinho injury blow

Tottenham have confirmed that Paulinho has "sustained significant ligament damage to his right ankle" and will be out injured for at least four weeks.

Following an MRI scan, the north London club announced that the damage to the midfielder’s ankle was significant and he is now set for a spell on the sidelines.

The Brazil international was forced off as a result of the injury during Sunday’s win against Stoke City after a heavy challenge from Charlie Adam.

The subsequent scan revealed that the midfielder is likely to be out for at least a month.
