At the start of the day there were fears that Spurs midfielder Christian Eriksen could be out of action until February after picking up an ankle injury while on international duty with Denmark. Those fears were fuelled by Danish national coach Morten Olsen who intimated that there may have been a ligament rupture sustained in the friendly with Denmark.
“We don’t know if he’s out for four or six weeks or how long it will take,” Olsen said after the match.
“It’s bad for him at a new club.”
However, conjecture has now turned into hard news and it’s relatively good from a Tottenham perspective.
“Following an MRI scan on Monday it has been determined that Christian Eriksen suffered a sprain of the lateral ankle ligaments playing for Denmark against Norway on Friday,” said an official Spurs statement.
“The scan showed no sign of ruptured ligaments which will result in a shorter period of recovery for the attacking midfielder.”
There is no word on an exact return date but some claims hint at a four week absence while others suggest that the midfielder could even be back for our home match with Liverpool on December 15th.
