Jan Vertonghen: Tottenham defender expected to be out for six weeks

They've coped quite well to Lamela's absence, it must be said, and it remains to be seen how Pochettino will adapt to the absence of Vertonghen in defense.

"Tomorrow he will have a scan", Pochettino said today.

Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen is expected to be out for six weeks with an ankle ligament injury, according to his manager Mauricio Pochettino. "We start to be concerned about him because he's almost three months and still in a situation that has not moved on".

But the injury has not improved and Pochettino confirmed on Thursday, ahead of his side's crucial clash with Manchester City, that Lamela will undergo another scan on Friday.

Nevertheless, if Spurs were to triumph at the Etihad it would not only strengthen their own title hopes but would be the first time in 50 years that the club had won seven league matches in a row. "We expect him to be out for less than what was, in the first moment, our idea". "It's still hard to give the time that he can come back". I don't want to set a limit, but I think that's very positive.

"When your mind is positive it's easier to recover - he doesn't require surgery", the Spurs trainer told BBC Sport. "There are still some problems, and we're not sure of the diagnosis", said the Spurs boss. "I am happy with the cover we have".

"The most important thing will be our performance - to show that we have improved a lot and learned from last season".

"But it's too early to talk about decisive games, or decisive points".
