There is some confirmed news about the extent of Jan Vertonghen’s injury and it aint good. Reports suggest that the Belgian international could be out for up to a month after picking up an ankle injury in last week’s win over Fulham and that could expose all the old issues over the left back position.

Meanwhile, it’s all very quiet over Danny Rose with one isolated report suggesting that the defender may just be ready for Thursday night’s tie against Anzhi in the Europa League. If he comes through that, Rose is likely to remain in the problem slot for Sunday’s vital game with Liverpool.

Alternatively, it looks as if Spurs will be sticking with Kyle Naughton on the left of defence until either Jan or Danny is fit enough to return. With Vertonghen potentially out of action until the New Year, surely that would be the catalyst needed for the club to head into January’s transfer market for a permanent solution?

  1. Could just bring Benny back?
    If not, Luke Shaw would be nice though i’m sure AVB would prefer Coentrao.
    Feeling sorry for Naughton, though he has played better at LB recently he’s still a RB and never gets a game in his best position

    • would have benny back but think avb has got a problem with him just hope avb has learnt a lesson after the man city farce but hes a stubbon git time will tell, think we just need to move the ball quicker in midfield

  2. I’m confused re Jan’s injury is it ‘confirmed news’ or ‘reports suggest’. It can’t be both. As far as I know the club have not made a statement

    • MRI confirmed ‘ankle ligament damage’. Club has not made an official announcement because further test are to conducted to be sure how long he’s gonna be out for. Until they are sure they cannot make a concrete announcement.

      • Now I am even more confused. If Tottenham haven’t announced anything how do you know what the MRI scan confirmed and who confirmed it?

  3. Fryers is the way to go if Rose isn’t fit. Defoe out and Soldado in or play them together. Defoe missed too many chances against Sunderland!

  4. all i want for christmas is for villas boas to realize that the only way to get soldado and lamela firing, is to play them every week until they adjust to the epl.
    soldado is a better team player then defoe any day, regardless of goals or not.
    chadli can`t dribble, maybe he should get the chance playing lb?

  5. Hows vlad ? He could play lb with capoue in the centre. We have some really winnable games over xmas, west brom, stoke, saints etc. COYS.
