London: Tottenham have received a Christmas boost with the news that Dutch forward Rafael van der Vaart may face Norwich on Tuesday after his hamstring injury proved less serious than first feared.
The 28-year-old Holland star went off at half-time in Thursday's 1-1 draw against Chelsea but a scan showed up no tear, meaning he comes into consideration for the visit to Carrow Road.
"He looks okay," Spurs manager Harry Redknapp told Sky Sports News. "He looks like he could be fit. We thought he had a hamstring. He went for a scan and it didn't show a tear.
