Tottenham injury news

Ahead of Friday’s tie, Ange Postecoglou has provided a Tottenham injury update.

Speaking to the press on Thursday, the Tottenham boss said: “From last week unfortunately Alejo [Veliz] suffered a fairly significant injury. He had scans after the game and it’ll probably keep him out for a couple of months. He won’t need surgery but he’s suffered ligament damage.

“Disappointed for him because he’s worked hard to get an opportunity in the last couple of weeks and has been growing into it so really disappointed for him. In terms of last week, no one else is an issue on the injury front.

“Guys coming back, Micky van de Ven has trained with us this week, he’s got through three sessions. We’re not sure about tomorrow whether he’ll be involved or not. I think everyone else is as is.

“[James Maddison] He’s not training with us yet mate and I’ve said before until they training with us, it is hard for me to put a timeline on it. He’s running with the sports science crew but not with us and not likely to be with us in the next couple of weeks I don’t think. Yeah, Cristian is still very early stages.”
