Bournemouth defender Simon Francis will be out for between six and nine months after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.
The 33-year-old club captain was carried off on a stretcher after suffering the injury in Wednesday’s 5-0 defeat by Tottenham at Wembley.
Francis has made 20 appearances in all competitions this season.
"We are devastated to have lost Simon to a serious knee injury," said Cherries boss Eddie Howe.
