Jan Vertonghen will perhaps only be out for 6 weeks instead of 10, now that his ankle ligament damage has been able to be assessed with the swelling having gone down. That takes us to the end of February.
Sat 21 Jan Manchester City v Spurs Premier League
Sat 28 Jan Spurs v Wycombe Wanderers FA Cup
Tue 31 Jan Sunderland v Spurs Premier League
Sat 04 Feb Spurs v Middlesbrough Premier League
Sat 11 Feb Liverpool v Spurs Premier League
Thurs 16 Feb Gent v Spurs Europa League
Thurs 23 Feb Spurs v Gent Europa League
Sun 26 Feb Spurs v Stoke City Premier League
That means Vertonghen could well be back in contention for a place on Saturday 4 March for a home game at White Hart Lane against Everton in the Premier League.
"Jan is okay, he's very positive, we are pushing him a lot. We expect him to be out for six weeks, less than we first thought. I don't want to set a limit or the time, but I think that's very positive. When your mind is good, positive, you can even recover early."
