Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas is delighted with the return to full fitness of fullback Danny Rose.
Rose's return, after three months out with a toe injury, is particularly welcome now that Vertonghen has been sidelined.
"It took so much time for the joint to heal," Villas-Boas said of Rose.
"Now it's good news because we have him back, almost fit."
