Micky van de Ven injury boost emerges as Ange Postecoglou sent fresh Tottenham title verdict


Ange Postecoglou faces a number of huge Tottenham decisions ahead of the Premier League clash against Wolves this Saturday. Cristian Romero and Destiny Udogie are suspended for the game while Micky van de Ven and James Maddison are injury doubts after both were taken off against Chelsea.

While Maddison being withdrawn appeared precautionary, van de Ven appears to have suffered a serious injury after pulling up clutching his hamstring. However, a fresh training image from Hotspur Way has sparked frenzy among Tottenham fans that the Netherlands international may not be a long-term absentee.

One of the many decisions facing Postecoglou for Wolves could involve Rodrigo Bentancur with his choice sure to impact Giovani Lo Celso. Although the Lilywhites suffered their first defeat of the season this past week, they remain in the Premier League title conversation with a new verdict sent to Postecoglou.

Spurs saw their unbeaten start to the campaign end in disastrous fashion with both Cristian Romero and Destiny Udogie sent off in the 4-1 defeat to Chelsea.

Bentancur decision

James Maddison could miss Tottenham's Premier League clash with Wolves after being withdrawn in the first half of the London derby against Chelsea earlier this week.

As a result, the game in the West Midlands could possibly see Rodrigo Bentancur make his first start since returning from the ACL injury he picked up at Leicester City in February if the head coach believes he is in a position to play from the off.

Whatever Postecoglou decides, Giovani Lo Celso is sure to feel the impact with a number of midfielders appearing ahead of him in the pecking order.
