LONDON (AP) -- Tottenham says midfielder Etienne Capoue is likely to be unavailable for the next four weeks after scans showed he sprained his left ankle in the 1-0 loss to Arsenal in the north London derby.
The France international, who joined in the offseason from Toulouse, was carried off on a stretcher in the 72nd minute at Emirates Stadium and taken to a hospital.
It was only Capoue's third start for Spurs.
