Pochettino reveals whether Davies, Sissoko, and Wanyama can play on Sunday


Tottenham Hotspur have had a lengthy injury list all season long, but they could finally be getting some players back this week.

Eric Dier recently returned to the first team, as did Lucas Moura and Moussa Sissoko, although the latter was injured again against Chelsea last night.

Victor Wanyama is also back in first team training ahead of his return to action, and Ben Davies is recovering from a knock he picked up in the semi final too.

This leaves just Harry Kane, Dele Alli, and the long-term Luke Amos out injured for Spurs at the moment.

Pochettino has now revealed whether Sissoko, Davies, and Wanyama will be fit enough to face Crystal Palace in the FA Cup fourth round on Sunday.

This is Spurs’ last remaining domestic cup, so they will be going all out to claim it this year after their painful Carabao Cup exit against Chelsea last night.

Poch said on Davies (Football London): “Need to assess him tomorrow. Maybe a chance he could play.”

On Sissoko: “The same as Ben. But we need to assess and see if we will take a risk or not. We will assess tomorrow as we have one more training session.”

On Wanyama: “Maybe. I need to assess him tomorrow. But it’s a player who for a long period was away. We cannot expect that he arrives and starts to perform in his best way. Of course to help the team but still one day more and we’ll see if he can be available or not.”
