Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp may be without midfielder Sandro and defender William Gallas for extended periods after the pair limped off during Spurs' 1-0 win over West Brom.

Sandro and Gallas appear certain to spend lengthy spells on the sidelines after both picked up suspected calf tears. Meanwhile, an injury to Jake Livermore added to the loss of Scott Parker, tempering Tottenham's triumph at White Hart Lane which leaves them trailing league leaders Manchester City by just six points.

"I think Sandro tore a calf so that will be a long one,'' Redknapp said. "It looks like Gallas [tore a calf] as well. He felt it go.

"They will have scans tomorrow. We will have to wait and see. Jake got a bang in the mouth - he split all his lip. He will have it stitched up. It doesn't look good.

"That leaves us short. I'm not sure how long Scott will be out for. His knee was swollen up today.''

Redknapp, though, said he has not made a decision regarding signing reinforcements for the injury-hit squad during the January transfer window, saying: "I don't have any targets at the moment that I would go to the chairman and say we should get."
