Richarlison set for another spell on the sidelines after World Cup injury

Brazil and Tottenham forward Richarlison is set for a spell on the sidelines after suffering a hamstring injury in the quarter-final defeat by Croatia at the World Cup.

Spurs expect the forward to be out for weeks rather than months but they are still awaiting results of a scan.

Richarlison, 25, was substituted in the 84th minute before Brazil lost 4-2 on penalties.

He scored three goals in four games in Qatar.

It is the latest in a line of injuries this season for Antonio Conte. The Spurs manager has already suffered injuries to Dejan Kulusevski, Cristian Romero and Son Heung-min across the season.

It means England captain Harry Kane will not have another opportunity of a break and will be in line to start away to Brentford on 26 December when the Premier League returns.
