Danny Rose is set for another layoff after a recurrence of the knee injury which forced him to miss the start of the season, the Evening Standard have reported.
#thfc On Rose: it's the same knee. Been feeling it recently. He'll have tests this week but not expected back soon & definitely out of West Ham/Wimbledon.— Dan Kilpatrick (@Dan_KP) January 2, 2018
“We need to assess him. After the game against Southampton it was impossible to train and now we are going to assess him. Then the club will give information about what has happened,” Pochettino said.
“I am concerned about everyone when they cannot be available to play. Sometimes it is small things. You know in this situation we cannot manage because I am not a specialist. I am not a doctor.
“Always you are worried because you want the players available and fit to play, so you can make your decision. But we need to wait and we will assess him in the next few days.
“I think I cannot say anything. But my feeling, my perception is it would be difficult to play in 48 hours."
Rose has continued to be linked with a move to Manchester United, but has made 11 appearances for Spurs since his recovery.
