Danny Rose suffers reoccurrence of knee injury 

Danny Rose is set for another spell on the sidelines

after the defender suffered a recurrence of the knee injury that

ruled him out for nine months until October, but boss Mauricio

Pochettino called it only a “small problem.”

Rose did not travel to Swansea for Tuesday’s Premier League

match, and a club source told ESPN FC that he had been feeling

the knee in recent weeks and would undergo tests to determined

the extent of the problem this week.

It is unclear at this stage for how long Rose will be out, but he

is not expected to feature in Thursday’s game against West Ham

United or the FA Cup third-round match against AFC Wimbledon

on Sunday.

After the 2-0 win at Swansea, Pochettino said he was not

concerned by Rose’s injury, describing it as a “small problem.”

“We need to assess him after the game against Southampton [on

Boxing Day],” the Spurs manager told a news conference. “Then

the club will give information about what happened.

“I am not concerned. Sometimes are small things. In this

situaiton, I am not a specialist, not a doctor. You want your

player fit to play, but we wait to see.”

The news is still a significant blow for Spurs and for the 27-year-

old, who originally suffered the injury in a 0-0 draw at Sunderland

in January 2017.

After undergoing an operation, he finally returned as a substitute

against Real Madrid in October and has since started eight

matches, including five in the league.
