Kulusevski underwent a scan on returning to the club on Wednesday after reporting tightness in his hamstring, having started Sweden’s Nations League matches against Serbia and Slovenia during the break.

The forward played 90 minutes in Tuesday’s 1-1 draw with Slovenia. He felt discomfort during the match at around the 70 minute mark. He then stayed on and played the full 90 minutes which aggravated the injury.

The 22-year-old has been a standout performer for Tottenham ever since making the switch from Juventus back in January. His creativity  was missed on Saturday as Spurs struggled to create clear-cut openings in the north London derby.

Kulusevski has been a key player for Spurs under Conte and he will be desperate to get the Swedish international back to full fitness as soon as possible. 

Spurs face a packed fixture schedule over the next six weeks, with games coming thick and fast before the World Cup. If Kulusevski is out for a minimum of two weeks, he’ll miss crucial games against Eintracht Frankfurt, Brighton and Everton.
