The Honduras international suffered the injury while stretching in the box to reach the ball ahead of Spurs striker Jermain Defoe in the first half and had to be carried from the field on a stretcher soon afterwards.

Latics manager Roberto Martinez suggested in his post-match press conference that Figueroa will not play again this campaign, ruling him out of the FA Cup final against Manchester City at Wembley on 11 May.

"The initial reaction is that Figueroa should be out for the season," said Martinez.

"It is a groin strain. It was (a great tackle), but the groin got stretched and the rest of the body pulled apart.

"We need to see the extent of the problem, but he is on crutches at the moment. We will assess him."

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!
