Tottenham injury update

Ahead of facing Burnley, Spurs have a number of injury issues to deal with.

Cristian Romero picked up an injury during the win over Everton over the festive period. Ange Postecoglou was initially fairly positive about the damage but days later confirmed Romero would be out for ‘four or five weeks’.

Pape Matar Sarr was in tears after being forced off against Bournemouth on New Year’s Eve, with the young midfielder set to soon after depart for the Africa Cup of Nations.

Postecoglou said after the game: “Pape felt his hamstring and he’s emotional because he wants to go away with his national team. It’s a big tournament for them. It’s kind of the way our season has gone. He was so good again early in the game, apart from his goal, and then he gets an injury. Disappointing for him but I am hoping it is not too serious and he can still go away and contribute to his country.

James Maddison has not featured since suffering an ankle injury in the London derby defeat by Chelsea on November 6. A subsequent scan showed the severity of the issue and a frustrated Maddison is not expected back until the New Year.

Postecoglou said on December 22: “[He is] nowhere near being in the reckoning for any first-team duties yet.”

Micky Van de Ven was also forced off against Chelsea having suffered a hamstring injury. But he seems to be making good progress with his recovery as he targets a return in the opening weeks of January.
