Gareth Bale: Tottenham winger facing injury lay-off

Bale hobbled off in the 62nd minute at Craven Cottage after falling awkwardly following a shot at goal.

Spurs fans were left fearing the Welshman could be set for a long-term lay-off, but boss Andre Villas-Boas, who also lost centre-back Michael Dawson with a hamstring injury, played down those concerns after the match.

"Both Bale and Dawson have suffered hamstring muscle injuries," said Villas-Boas.

"One looks more serious than the other although both are controllable.

"With muscle injuries it's very difficult but it might keep Bale out for one to weeks. Dawson a little bit less."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
