Tottenham's Townsend confident of overcoming broken hand to face Everton

Tottenham winger Andros Townsend believes he will be fine to take on Everton this weekend.

The England international sustained some broken bones in his hand during Sunday's narrow 1-0 win over Hull City but suggests he should be ok to take his place in Andre Villas-Boas' starting line-up when they travel to Goodison Park this Sunday.

"I've got a few broken bones in my hand but it's nothing too serious," he told talkSPORT.

"I didn't want to let the team go down to 10 men so I had to run back on wounded and the crowd were behind me, the manager was screaming at me to go on so I didn't have a choice really.

"Hopefully I'll be back in time for the weekend."
