Tottenham Hotspur defender Ben Davies expects to be ruled out for "a good couple of weeks" after suffering an ankle injury.

Davies, who plays at left-back for his club and on the left of a back three for his country, is set to miss Wales' World Cup 2018 qualifier with Serbia on Saturday 12 November as a result of the knock. The 23-year-old limped off during Tottenham's Champions League defeat to Bayer Leverkusen last Wednesday and was ruled out of Sunday's 1-1 draw with Arsenal as a result of the injury.

Tottenham face an important run of fixtures following the international break, hosting West Ham United at White Hart Lane on Saturday 19 November.

Three days later, Mauricio Pochettino's side travel to Monaco to try and keep their Champions League hopes alive. The following Saturday, they travel to Stamford Bridge for a third consecutive London derby in the league to face in-form Chelsea.

Davies however could miss all three of those games.

"It's not too good at the moment, I've just got to get ready," Davies said, Sky Sports report. "It will be a good couple of weeks after this one to get back fit, so I've just got to work hard."

While Dele Alli was left out of the England squad selected for games against Scotland and Spain, a number of Tottenham players left north London carrying knocks.

Kyle Walker, who limped off with 10 minutes remaining against Arsenal on Sunday, was selected despite Gareth Southgate identifying him as a minor injury doubt. Walker, Danny Rose, Harry Kane and Eric Dier all sat out of a group training session on Tuesday, with Southgate forced to call upon members of the Under-21 squad to make up the numbers in his training sessions.
