Tottenham Hotspur face struggling Swansea City at White Hart Lane on Saturday as they look to close the four-point gap that has opened up between them and fourth-placed Arsenal.
Pochettino had hoped Toby Alderweireld would make his long-awaited return from a knee injury but the defender is still not fully fit.
The absence of the Belgian central defender has ben plain for all to see since he picked up the injury in the 1-1 draw at West Bromwich Albion in October.
“Toby was involved during the week in training,” Pochettino said in a press conference on Thursday.
“We are very happy with his evolution but he has a small thing, we are not sure, we need to assess tomorrow (Friday) if he can be available.”
