Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe believes his side have the ability to cope without Gareth Bale, who was forced off with a hamstring injury.

The winger has been in good form in recent weeks but picked up the injury in the second half.

“Obviously losing Gaz is a massive blow for the team,” Defoe said.

“Because of the way he plays you can’t really replace a player like that, but at the same time I think someone else can come in.

“We’re lucky because we’ve got some great players that can come in, play out of position, adapt and do a job for the team.

“When Gaz went off the pitch Clint Dempsey went over to the left-hand side and did well. I think we will be okay.”
