Rafael van der Vaart has made a rapid recovery from a hamstring injury and could be in contention for Tottenham's clash with Liverpool next weekend. The Dutch playmaker sat out his country's Euro 2012 qualifiers and was also unavailable for Spurs' first win of the season against Wolves on Saturday.

"I have been treated intensively by (physiotherapist) Dick van Toorn," the 28 year old told his official website.

"I was able to do proper turns again and regular sprints. Next weekend seems like no problem to me!"
