Danny Rose is being assessed by the clubs medical team following a recurrence of his knee injury that kept him out for the first two months of the season and he has not featured for Spurs since their 5-2 Boxing Day victory over Southampton.
An article by Sky Sports News says Rose has already been partly assessed by the Spurs medical team and will continue to undergo tests to discover the full extent of his latest injury with it understood Rose is set to miss the Premier League match against West Ham on Thursday and the FA Cup third-round tie against AFC Wimbledon at Wembley on Sunday.
The article adds that after our 2-0 win over Swansea on Tuesday, Mauricio Pochettino said: “We need to assess him [Rose]. 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 added: “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.”
Pochettino went on to say: “But my feeling, my perception is it would be difficult to play in 48 hours.”
