Tottenham Hotspur have struggled somewhat in the full-back position over pre-season and the start of the Premier League campaign.
In fact, against Aston Villa, Pochettino only really had one right-back and one left-back to choose from for his starting line up.
Danny Rose started on the left and Kyle Walker-Peters on the right side. Serge Aurier made the bench but has had no pre-season.
Ryan Sessegnon, although a new signing, is out injured for the moment, as is Juan Foyth who can cover on the right.
Ben Davies has also been out for the entire pre-season after undergoing surgery, but he was pictured back in training earlier this week.
Injury analyst, Ben Dinnery, has now revealed that Ben Davies has been training with the squad for over a week and is now fit enough to be considered for the Man City match.
This would certainly be a welcomed defensive boost for Pochettino.
Ben Davies, who has been training with the squad for over a week now, is fit and could be considered for the game on Saturday. #COYS
