Tottenham injury update: Micky van de Ven, Destiny Udogie and Guglielmo Vicario latest news and return dates

Tottenham are gearing up for the return to Premier League action amid fresh injury concerns.

A brutal week heading into the international break saw Micky van de Ven and James Maddison pick up long-term injuries, Destiny Udogie struggle with a muscle concern and Richarlison go under the knife to solve a long-standing groin issue.

Guglielmo Vicario was taken ill while with the Italy squad to add to Spurs fears, but three other faces are edging closer to returns.

With the problems mounting, here’s a look at the latest Tottenham injuries...

Micky van de Ven

Micky van de Ven fantastic start to life at Spurs has been halted by a serious hamstring injury, suffered during the defeat to Chelsea.

The centre-back pulled up while chasing the ball and is not expected back until the new year.

Van de Ven caused excitement in the Spurs fanbase with a cryptic Instagram post last week - posting a picture of himself in a Spurs shirt with an hourglass emoji - but his return timeline is understood to have not improved.

Potential return date: January 2024

Destiny Udogie

Tottenham left-back Destiny Udogie withdrew from the Italy squad last week as he continues to struggle with a muscle injury picked up against Fulham last month.

The 20-year-old was forced off in the 2-0 victory over Cottagers last month and subsequently missed the win at Crystal Palace four days later.

The left-back returned to the side for Spurs' disastrous 4-1 defeat to Chelsea having barely trained in the build-up, and was sent off for two bookings in a difficult outing.

Potential return date: Unknown

Guglielmo Vicario

Tottenham goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario missed Italy's Euro 2024 qualifier win over North Macedonia last week after suffering from "flu symptoms", with replacement Marco Carnesecchi being named on the bench in his place.

Given the issue is one of illness rather than injury, the goalkeeper is not expected to be on the sidelines for much longer.

Potential return date: November 26, 2023, vs Aston Villa

James Maddison

Influential midfielder James Maddison has vowed to come back “better and stronger” following an ankle injury sustained against Chelsea.

He is expected to be sidelined until January in a huge blow to Spurs, and his absence was felt in the late loss at Wolves last time out.

"Madders is a lot worse than we first thought, it was bad the next day. Again into the New Year with him”, the Spurs boss admitted before the international break.

Spurs have confirmed the Brazilian went under the knife to fix a groin issue and will return to training “in the coming weeks”.

"We can confirm that Richarlison has undergone groin surgery today,” a club statement read.

"The Brazil international will commence his rehabilitation with our medical staff immediately, before returning to training in the coming weeks."

Potential return date: December 2023

Ryan Sessegnon

Ryan Sessegnon has only just returned to light training after hamstring surgery during the summer.

Postecoglou said last month: "Sess is still a fair bit of time away; he's longer-term."

Potential return date: December 2023

Manor Solomon

Forward Manor Solomon had surgery on a knee issue picked up in training and is expected back in December.

Potential return date: December 2023

Ivan Perisic

Ivan Perisic seems unlikely to play for Spurs again after he sustained a long-term injury before the season started.

Potential return date: Summer 2024
