Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp admits Jermain Defoe has picked up an ankle injury.

Defoe is yet to score in the Premier League this season.

"Defoe has an injury again. He's had a problem with his ankle before and it didn't feel too good," Redknapp said in Dubai-based newspaper The National.

"We're trying to finish in the top four and it's so close. But we've got so many players injured, people forget.

"We've got Tom Huddlestone, Younes Kaboul, Ledley King, [Jonathan] Woodgate, [Gareth] Bale, [Rafael] Van der Vaart.

"If you could pick a team of injured players it would be a fantastic team."
