Manager Ange Postecoglou has confirmed that Micky van de Ven is in contention for a spot at Tottenham ahead of Saturday’s Premier League game against Luton
The defender picked up a hamstring injury in the 4-0 win against Aston Villa earlier this month and missed the 3-0 defeat against Fulham before the international break
Spurs were confident they had avoided a second serious injury to Van de Ven this season, having been sidelined for more than two months after injuring his hamstring against Chelsea in November

“First of all, all the international players survived unscathed,” said the Spurs coach
“Most of them got meaningful playing time and that was important
“Mickey has been training for the last few days and is available
” Richarlison, who recently suffered a knee injury, is also available as Spurs look to put pressure on Villa in the race for the top four
If Postecoglou’s side win against the Hatters, they will be level with Villa on points, but Villa also have a game in hand
“Richie is fine
He had a problem with his knee
We treated him and he trained today
He feels good and is available,” added the Spurs manager
Postecoglou also recently revealed that midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur, who has broken his toe and played for both Spurs and Uruguay, missed practice
He claimed not to have done so
“He’s still training and playing
As far as I’ve seen, he hasn’t missed a training session,” the Australian said
The international break appears to have passed without incident when it comes to Tottenham’s injury list
Micky van de Ven may be closer to returning for Saturday’s game against Luton, but Ryan Sessegnon and Manar Solomon both face long-term absences
However, News reported that Rodrigo Bentancur has been plagued by injuries recently
Ange Postecoglou hopes to have almost the entire squad at his disposal over the weekend

I had to take 3-4 weeks off to heal, but that’s not possible
“I was in a training session with my teammates before the Crystal Palace game in London and it’s almost there
” I’m trying to recover my toe, but I actually forget it when I warm up
