Tottenham’s Maddison is out until January due to injury

James Maddison has scored three goals and provided five assists in 11 Premier League games for Spurs this season

James Maddison has been ruled out until January due to an ankle injury, Tottenham boss Ange Postecoglou has confirmed.

The 26-year-old midfielder has withdrawn from the England squad for the Euro 2024 qualifiers in November.

He suffered the injury at Tottenham chaotic 4-1 defeat against Chelsea in the Premier League on Monday.

“It’s fair to say that quite a bit has happened after Monday,” said Postecoglou, who revealed that defender Micky van de Ven would also be out until New Year.

“[Maddison] is much worse than we thought. He came away with an ankle injury and the next day wasn’t great so we sent him for a scan.”

Van de Ven, who signed for Spurs from Wolfsburg this summer, retired in the same match with a hamstring injury.

“Micky obviously had a hamstring injury, we knew it was quite serious, probably a few months away for him looking at the new year,” Postecoglou added.

Tottenham also has to do without Brazilian striker Richarlison, who has a surgery for a groin injury earlier this month, but Postecoglou says he should be back shortly after the international break.

Defenders Cristian Romero and Destiny Udogie will miss Saturday’s Premier League match against Wolves due to suspension after both received red cards against Chelsea.

England will play Malta at Wembley on Friday, November 17, and travel to North Macedonia three days later.

Maddison made five appearances for England and was an unused substitute in the competition 3-1 win over Italy in October, securing Euro 2024 qualification for Gareth Southgate’s side with two games to spare.
