Breaking news.Tottenham get an encouraging injury update for a change

It has been a rough season for Tottenham Hotspur on an injury front, with the team suffering a recent crisis of

absences in the wake of Cristian Romero’s most recent injury.Four to five weeks will be missed by the talented center back.

Romero is one of two key players out with injury, along with offensive midfielder James Maddison and fellow center defender Micky van de Ven. Due to the AFCON competition, Yves Bissouma and Pape Sarr are expected to be lost in the defensive midfield.

Positively speaking, Tottenham could finally be receiving good news about injuries.

After missing out on action since November 6 due to a hamstring injury, manager Ange Postecoglou recently informed media that summer acquisition Micky van de Ven is getting “closer” to making a comeback.

Postecoglou isn’t exactly sure when the 22-year-old will be back, but he opened the possibility for the former Wolfsburg standout to make his return to the Tottenham lineup against Manchester United.

That is a big-ticket Premier League matchup, with United showing signs of life by coming back to beat top-four contenders Aston Villa 3-2.

Tottenham have their own Champions League ambitions after missing out on Europe last season, and United will be one of their direct competitors for the four coveted UCL slots.

Similar to Guglielmo Vicario in goal, Van van Ven has been a game-changer for Spurs, offering a significant improvement over what they had to cope with in goal last season.

Romero’s injury coincides with his expected return, which is unfortunate given their skill set, talent, and potential combine to make for an excellent center back combination.

Following their Dec. 28 meeting against Brighton, Tottenham will play an FA Cup match against Burnley on New Year’s Eve, followed on Jan. 14 by a match against Bournemouth. That should provide van de Ven enough time to recover, although he continues to play on a day-to-day basis.
