Some of the key stories related to Tottenham Hotspur this Wednesday evening.
Vertonghen is suffering from an ankle injury and the club will use PRP [platelet-rich plasma] treatment to improve the Belgian’s recovery time.
Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas said: ‘We will have the player in a boot for one to two weeks to try to settle it.
‘We want to avoid surgery so we will use PRP treatment to try to get him back as soon as possible.
‘We’ve had outstanding results with PRP treatment and we will do that again now.’
Vlad Chriches, however, will miss the game but could be in line to face Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday.
AVB said: ‘We will look to try and give Danny Rose a couple of minutes in this game and Christian Eriksen is also selected, so there is the possibility that he could play some minutes as well.’
Vermes, who also commented on Chelsea’s Frank Lampard in the same interview, said: ‘I see both of them coming. I think it’s going to happen. They are world-class players with great qualities that I think will only help enhance the league.
‘Defoe, I think, is a done deal already but that’s just my opinion.’
