The Belgian is set for an extended period on the sidelines.
The Belgian limped off after 11 minutes during the Lilywhites’ draw with Liverpool on Saturday and will now miss several crucial fixtures in the coming weeks.
The former FC Twente star bagged 13 league goals last campaign, in what was his most successful spell since his arrival in the summer of 2013.
It’s been a different story this time around however, with just the one goal to his name – and there is the feeling that a spell on the sidelines for the 25-year old might not be such a bad thing for Spurs.
Clinton N’Jie came on for his injured team-mate and is now in line to make his first start since his summer move from Lyon.
Reaction on Twitter seemed to reflect the fact that the latest addition to Tottenham’s injury list could well prove to be a blessing in disguise:
Big chance for Clinton Njie at #THFC with the news Chadli is out until December. Gives the new signing a chance to make a stake in the team.— Willie Gannon (@WillieGannon) October 20, 2015
N'Jie has got the chance to smash it while Chadli and Son are out here!— Jev (@Jev34) October 20, 2015
Chadli might struggle to get back into our team when he's back. There's a chance now for N'Jie and Townsend until Son is back.— Joe (@sayers_14) October 20, 2015
So many missed opportunities for Pritchard with the injuries to Chadli, Eriksen and Son, as well as the early form of Lamela and Townsend.— Tom (@Tomfoins87) October 20, 2015
While Chadli's injury is a blow, it's a good chance for N'Jie & Mousa to get an extended run in the team at least till Son is back for N'Jie— SHДRKY (@Belgian_Hotspur) October 20, 2015
Chadli out for six weeks. Who's the scapegoat until then please? I haven't received the memo yet. #coys— A Hello Kitty Uzi (@kreans) October 20, 2015
Chadli may not have been at his best, but another attacking injury is not what we need— Oly (@OlyLister) October 20, 2015
