Tottenham Team News: Pochettino Confirms Trio Will Miss Everton Clash

By on January 12, 2018


Tottenham will look to close-in on the top four with a win when they take on Everton at Wembley on Saturday evening.

Mauricio Pochettino has been speaking to the media at his press conference today and he’s offered a team news and injury update ahead of the game.

The Spurs boss confirmed that he’ll continue to be without three of his first team regulars tomorrow with Harry Winks, Danny Rose and Toby Alderweireld all still on the sidelines.

Winks has played just six minutes of football during Tottenham’s last five games in all competitions due to a niggling ankle injury and he’s set to miss out once again this weekend.

Pochettino has revealed the midfielder has been given an injection on Monday and he hopes Winks will be able to resume first team training at some point next week.

Rose has missed Tottenham’s last three games after aggravating a knee injury that’s plagued him for the entire season and the left-back is continuing his rehabilitation with the England doctors at St George’s Park.


Rose will return to Spurs on Wednesday and Pochettino hopes the defender will be available for selection again in a few weeks time but there is no fixed time-frame over his recovery period.

The Tottenham boss told Football London.

Is there good news about Danny Rose?

Now he’s doing his rehab in St George’s Park until Wednesday. We hope it’s not a big issues and he can be available again in a couple of weeks.

What’s the latest with Harry Winks?

He had an injection on Monday and he’s still not training with the group. We’ll see next week if he can join the group and start training again, but for tomorrow he’s not ready.

Alderweireld is also still not available for selection as he’s working his way back to fitness from a serious hamstring injury that he suffered during Tottenham’s Champions League win over Real Madrid in November.

Spurs head in to the weekend action sitting fifth in the table but they can move level on points with fourth-placed Liverpool with a win tomorrow ahead of their clash with Man City on Sunday.
