Richarlison will spend three to four weeks on the sidelines as a result of the hamstring injury he sustained at the World Cup, Tottenham boss Antonio Conte has confirmed.

The Brazil forward scored three goals during an impressive campaign in Qatar, including a brilliant acrobatic volley in the Selecao’s 2-0 group-stage win over Serbia.

However, Richarlison’s World Cup ended in disappointing fashion as he was forced off early in Brazil’s quarter-final defeat by Croatia on penalties.

The former Everton man underwent an MRI scan earlier this week, with Conte subsequently confirming he will sit out the festive period.

“I spoke with the medical department, they told me we need three to four weeks,” the Tottenham boss said. “His injury was a serious injury.

“I followed all my players at the World Cup with my fingers crossed, because you know very well you can lose important players. It happened with Richarlison, who had a problem, [Rodrigo] Bentancur and Ben Davies.”

Absent from their Boxing Day trip to Brentford, Richarlison is now a doubt for Spurs’ Premier League fixtures against Arsenal and Manchester City.

Conte’s side face their north London rivals on January 15, before taking on the reigning champions four days later.
