LONDON (AP) Tottenham says midfielder Nacer Chadli will be out for six weeks with an ankle ligament injury sustained against Liverpool.

The Belgium international went down after only eight minutes of the 0-0 draw on Saturday at White Hart Lane. He attempted to continue but was eventually taken off on a stretcher after 11 minutes.

The 26-year-old Chadli's time out means he is expected to miss Tottenham's Premier League matches against London rivals Arsenal on Nov. 8 and Chelsea on Nov. 29.
