Spurs Team News: Poch Confirms Huge Injury Boost, Trio Could Miss Out + Rose Update

By on April 7, 2017

Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to keep the pressure on Chelsea when they take on Watford at White Hart Lane on Saturday afternoon.

Ahead of the game, Mauricio Pochettino has been speaking to the media at his pre-match press conference this afternoon and he’s given reporters a team news and injury update.

The Spurs boss was pleased to confirm a major injury boost with the news that Harry Kane will be back in the squad tomorrow after making a swift recovery from an ankle injury.

Kane has been on the sidelines since suffering ankle ligament damage during the FA Cup win over Millwall on March 11th and he was initially expected to be out for between 6 to 8 weeks.

However, Kane has made excellent progress in his recovery and returned to full training this week with Pochettino confirming that his top scorer will be back in the squad to face Watford tomorrow.

The Spurs boss is quoted as telling TottenhamHotspur.com:

“It’s very good news Harry will be involved again and he’s trained well in the last few days. I haven’t decided yet if he’ll be in the starting 11 or on the bench but the good thing is that he’s back.”

There was also an update on Danny Rose and Pochettino has revealed that the full-back is on course to return to full training before the end of the month.

Rose has been out since suffering knee ligament damage during the draw with Sunderland back in January and while he suffered a set-back in recovery last month, the left-back is set to resume full training at the end of April.

However, Pochettino has more immediate concerns to worry about with three of his first team squad doubts to take on Watford in tomorrow’s early Saturday kick off.

Victor Wanyama will be assessed ahead of the game after missing the win over Swansea with a back injury while Hugo Lloris is also still a doubt after illness kept him out of the trip to Wales.

Pochettino will be praying his No.1 is passed fit as Michel Vorm is a doubt to face Watford after picking up a knee injury against the Swans in midweek so the Spurs boss is facing something of an injury crisis in goal.
