Mason set to miss Burnley clash


Ryan Mason is not expected to feature in Tottenham’s FA Cup third-round tie at Burnley on Monday.

The 23-year-old midfielder lasted just 11 minutes of the 5-3 victory over Chelsea on New Year’s Day after picking up a hamstring injury when stretching for the ball. Erik Lamela missed that match with a minor calf complaint and may not be risked against Burnley, against whom head coach Mauricio Pochettino is likely to rotate his squad.

Provisional squad: Lloris, Vorm, Friedel, Walker, Naughton, Dier, Rose, Davies, Fazio, Kaboul, Vertonghen, Chiriches, Stambouli, Dembele, Paulinho, Capoue, Bentaleb, Lamela, Eriksen, Chadli, Lennon, Townsend, Soldado, Kane, Adebayor.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Poch and the squad MUST now realize the key to our success is how we open out the opposing defense. Kane is a Godsend revelation and we have key support players in Eriksen and Chadli. With Townsend or Lennon on the right flank we have the ability to give Kane the kind of opportunity he delivers on. BUT play Lamela and the system will break down!!!!! more to the point his presence increases the chances of Kane being injured! Lamela is impatient, squeezes the game down the center and more often takes the game backwards rather than taking shots at goal – he lacks confidence!
