Vertonghen (ankle) has been ruled out of Monday's match against Sunderland, Tottenham's official web site reports.

Vertonghen picked up the injury against Liverpool last Sunday and had to come off after just 23 minutes. He'll miss a great clean sheet opportunity, and his next opportunity to play comes April 12 against West Ham.

Vertonghen picked up a knee injury during Sunday's loss at Liverpool and he will be assessed in the coming days, the Tottenham Journal reports.

Tottenham don't play again until the following Monday, giving Vertonghen a little extra time to recover. It would be good news for fantasy owners, as Spurs will host Sunderland in gameweek 33.

Vertonghen clearly wants to be playing in the Champions League, and should Tottenham not qualify this season, he did not say he wouldn't leave. The squad is six points behind Liverpool, who currently hold fourth place in the league.

Vertonghen (ankle) is in the starting XI for Saturday's Premier League match against Hull City.

There was some speculation that Vertonghen was going to return for last Wednesday's match against Manchester City, but he wasn't deemed fit enough at that point. He's back to fitness and ready to be deployed for fantasy owners.

Vertonghen is expected to have additional tests on his injured ankle and there is concern that the injury could hold him out for a month, according to The Guardian.

Vertonghen suffered his injury last week against Fulham, forcing him to miss out on last weekend's match against Sunderland. With a timeframe of a month, he could miss out on this weekend's Premier League match against Liverpool, a Capital One Cup match with West Ham, plus potentially matches against Manchester United and Arsenal, a brutal spell for Tottenham without one of their best players. Etienne Capoue could continue to fill in at centerback, with Younes Kaboul (groin) still sidelined.

Vertonghen (ankle) has been ruled out for Saturday's Premier League match against Sunderland.

Vertonghen injured his ankle in Wednesday's match against Fulham and an initial MRI confirmed an injury severe enough to miss this weekend's match. It's unclear when he'll be able to return, especially with Tottenham's history of fogginess about injuries (see Rose, Danny).
