Gareth Bale out of contention with a calf injury


For a “few weeks ‘” with a calf injury, Tottenham winger Gareth Bale was ruled out.

In last week’s League Cup quarterfinal win at Stoke, the Wales international maintained the issue and Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho said Tuesday he will have a spell on the sidelines.

It is also anticipated that Brazilian duo Carlos Vinicius and Lucas Moura will miss Wednesday’s game against Fulham.

“I don’t expect (Bale) to be fit, and I also have my doubts that Fulham will be fit for Lucas and Vinicius,’ Mourinho said.

“I wouldn’t say that’s extreme, but I’d say (for Bale) a couple of weeks.”

Mourinho’s dependency on striker Harry Kane during a busy time would be exacerbated by the lack of attacking options.
