After a disappointing 3-1 defeat at Wembley against Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur will look to bounce back when they travel to Brighton on Tuesday. Ahead of the clash, Spurs tweeted the latest injury updates on Monday.
Danny Rose missed the Manchester City game with a calf strain. As per Tottenham’s Twitter account, Rose’s calf is improving with rehabilitation.
Meanwhile, Harry Winks has travelled to Aspetar clinic in Doha, Qatar to see world’s leading specialists in a bid to solve his ankle problem, Spurs confirmed. The midfielder has played only three times in 2018, having never recovered properly from the damage he sustained during the first half of the campaign.
According to reliable journalist Alasdair Gold, Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino will rotate his squad against Brighton ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United.
Gold tweeted that Lucas Moura is pushing for a start at Brighton, while Fernando Llorente is back in contention. Academy starlet Kyle Walker-Peters missed the last couple of games with a hamstring injury but is now fully fit, confirmed Gold.
However, the biggest news that would surely make the Spurs fanbase happy is that Toby Alderweireld is set to be in the squad against the Seagulls (confirmed by Pochettino).
The Belgian has been struggling with a hamstring problem this season but he is now fit to feature for the trip to Brighton on Tuesday.
It is important for Spurs to get back to winning ways ahead of the important FA semi-final clash with United. The FA Cup remains the only opportunity for a silverware this season and Poch must go all out to win it.
