The 21-year-old is having a breakthrough season under Ange Postecoglou, having moved ahead of the likes of Skipp and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in the pecking order.
He has established himself as one of the first names on the starting XI alongside Yves Bissouma.
He has started 16 games so far, scoring twice, once during their 2-0 win against United and one earlier today against Bournemouth. However, it turned into a disappointing afternoon for the Senegalese as he was forced off in the 30th minutes with an injury.
His absence will be a blow for Spurs and his country who he was to travel with for the AFCON.
The extent of his injury is yet to be revealed but he could end up missing the tournament for his country.
