Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Thimothee Atouba was stretchered off with a knee injury in Monday night's defeat at Portsmouth.


The Cameroon international suffered suspected ligament damage to his left knee after a tangle with Lumana Lualua in the second half of the 1-0 reverse.


However, he travelled back with the team from Fratton Park and will be assessed further at Spurs Lodge in the morning.


Head Coach Jacques Santini said afterwards: "It was not a good night because we lost the game and lost Thimothee Atouba with a bad injury on his knee.


"I'm not sure at the moment but I think it could be quite a bad injury."
