Soldado has been ruled out of Monday's match against Sunderland due to the hamstring injury he suffered last weekend against Liverpool, Spurs' official web site reports.

With Emmanuel Adebayor back to fitness following a heel injury, Tottenham have no reason to push Soldado back quickly. He wasn't getting regular starts anyway with a healthy Adebayor, so fantasy owners who hoped Soldado could find his former form will have to keep waiting.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Soldado suffered a hamstring injury during Sunday's loss at Liverpool, the Tottenham Journal reports.

Soldado, who was starting for the injured Emmanuel Adebayor (heel), will be assessed in the coming days, which should give clarity as to whether he will be available for next Monday's match against Sunderland. However, if Adebayor can get back to fitness, Soldado will probably return to the bench anyway.

Soldado scored in the 28th minute of Tottenham's 1-0 win over Cardiff City on Sunday.

Soldado had lost his place in the starting XI to Emmanuel Adebayor, but manager Tim Sherwood decided to play both of them up front Sunday. It seemed to work, as Soldado found the back of the net in a Premier League game for the first time since December 29, and only the second time since October 27. It's been a very disappointing season for Soldado, who still has a little time to show his worth after Spurs spent 26 million to bring him from Valencia last summer.

Soldado is in the starting XI for Saturday's match at Hull City.

Soldado was unused in Spurs' last two Premier League matches, but he'll get the start Saturday and play up front with Emmanuel Adebayor. Tottenham are still waiting on Soldado to get going, as a vast majority of his five goals this year have come from the penalty spot.

Soldado was an unused substitute for Wednesday's 1-5 loss to Manchester City.

Soldado has now been glued to the bench in back-to-back Premier League matches, with Emmanuel Adebayor clearly the preferred striker for manager Tim Sherwood. Soldado has been a bit of a disappointment this season, despite his overall stat line of five goals and four assists in 19 games. Until he can break back into the starting XI, his fantasy value will be quite limited.

Soldado suffered a calf injury during Saturday's FA Cup match with Arsenal, according to London 24. Manager Tim Sherwood said "Soldado is sore on his calf. He was touch and go whether he would play and he had to come off because we don't want it to go entirely and have him missing for six or seven weeks."

If Soldado is forced to miss any time, Jermain Defoe, who has been battling a hamstring injury, could be forced back into action to start up front with Emmanuel Adebayor.

Soldado set up Emmanuel Adebayor's first goal during Tottenham's 3-2 win over Southampton on Sunday.

With Tottenham looking to boost their goal-scoring, new manager Tim Sherwood started Soldado up front with Adebayor for the first time this season. It paid instant dividends, as the two hooked up after just 25 minutes for Spurs' first goal of the day. Soldado now has four goals and four assists this season, and could continue to get starts opposite Adebayor and Jermain Defoe during the busy holiday period.

Soldado, much like every player on the Tottenham side, struggled Sunday in the 5-0 drubbing by Liverpool.

With that said, Soldado was the most dangerous player on Tottenham, recording three shots, but none on goal. Tottenham have a tough matchup at St. Mary's next weekend, but look for Soldado to get back into scoring form sooner rather then later.
