Tottenham Hotspur’s injury woes have deepened with midfielder James Maddison and centre-back Micky van de Ven out until the New Year, manager Ange Postecoglou said on Friday.
Spurs lost Maddison and Van de Ven to injuries before halftime in Monday’s 4-1 home Premier League defeat by Chelsea.
Maddison withdrew from England’s squad earlier on Friday for their last two Euro 2024 qualifiers.
“Madders (Maddison is) a lot worse than we first thought. It was bad the next day. Again, into the New Year with him.”
Forward Richarlison is also sidelined after he underwent groin surgery which will keep him out of action for a few weeks.
Tottenham are second in the standings, one point behind Manchester City.
“There’s a fair bit happened after Monday night. Micky with a hamstring injury we knew was fairly significant. We’re looking at a couple of months, looking into the New Year,” Postecoglou told reporters ahead of Saturday’s trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers.
