Tottenham Hotspur were handed good news as defender Micky van de Ven does not require surgery for his hamstring injury. The 22-year-old was seen clutching his right hamstring and had to be helped off the pitch during Tottenham’s 4-1 defeat to Chelsea. Although the recovery timeline for Van de Ven is still unclear, Tottenham believes that surgery will not be needed, and the defender will recover through treatment with the club’s medical staff. The team hopes that this will result in less time off for Van de Ven compared to other players who have needed surgery for similar injuries in the past.
The head coach, Postecoglou, remains hopeful that Van de Ven’s recovery will be less severe than a previous injury that kept him out of 12 matches last year. With defensive problems mounting due to suspensions for other players, Tottenham is closely monitoring Van de Ven’s condition.
In the meantime, there is also news on other injury updates about players across the team, including Richarlison, who is reportedly playing on with a pubic bone injury for the time being. Overall, this situation has added to the complexities surrounding Tottenham’s defense and attack as they prepare for their upcoming matches.
