Tottenham's King injury made worse by rest!

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp suspects Ledley King's recent hamstring problems may be linked to the centre-back resting his knee between games. The 29 year old has a chronic knee condition but has learned to manage the injury and has played in eight games this season.

It would have been more but for the hamstring problem that forced him off after an hour of the victory over Sunderland at the weekend.

"He felt his hamstring a little bit," said Redknapp.

"Obviously with not training, it's a concern. That's what happens when you don't train - you do start to get a few twinges in games. It's a bit of a problem."
