Tottenham midfielder Tom Carroll will be out for seven to 10 days with an Achilles problem.
The 23-year-old picked up the knock during Spurs' 1-1 draw with Fiorentina in the Europa League last-32 on Thursday. He was substituted at half-time.
Carroll will therefore miss Sunday's FA Cup fifth round tie at Crystal Palace - as will goalkeeper Hugo Lloris - and next week's second leg against Fiorentina at White Hart Lane.
Head coach Mauricio Pochettino said: "Tom got a cut in his Achilles. We hope that in seven to 10 days he will be available again.
"Hugo is out for Sunday, but we hope for next Thursday he will be available. Jan Vertonghen and Clinton Njie are still recovering from their injuries."
Ryan Mason made his first appearance since November, captaining the side in Florence, and he is set to retain his place at Selhurst Park on Sunday.
Pochettino said: "It was special for him and he deserved to be nominated. He is a great man and great professional.
"We are happy that he is back because he is someone who can help the team."
