Mauricio Pochettino has offered the latest team news ahead of Tottenham’s league encounter against Burnley at the Turf Moor. Speaking to the media at his pre-match press conference, Pochettino gave the team news and injury updates. He revealed details about Vincent Janssen, Danny Rose, Harry Kane, and Erik Lamela.

Vincent Janssen

The boss revealed that the Dutchman has a chest infection and he will be assessed on a daily basis before a judgment is made on his availability for this weekend.

Danny Rose

The Spurs boss has confirmed that Danny Rose is due to be assessed this week as the full-back looks set to make his return from a knee ligament injury that has kept him out since the 0-0 draw with Sunderland on January 31st.

Rose has made steady progress in his recovery and the defender will be hoping to return in time for the FA Cup semi-final with Chelsea next month. Having someone like Danny Rose return for a game of such magnitude will be a massive boost for Tottenham.

Harry Kane

The manager also revealed positive news on Harry Kane as the striker seems to be recovering well from his ankle ligament injury. It looks like he has started light work on the training pitch this week. Kane has been out since suffering the injury to his ankle during the 6-0 FA Cup win over Millwall. The 24-goal striker is well on course to return in April.

Erik Lamela

Another update from Pochettino was about Argentine star Erik Lamela. He has been ruled out for the rest of the season after failing to overcome a troublesome hip injury that has kept him out since the end of October. It was told that Lamela will undergo a surgery on Saturday, which will result in him returning to action next season.

The Scenario

Tottenham head into the weekend action, sitting 2nd in the Premier League table with fifth-placed Man Utd 7 points behind them with a game in hand. Spurs will look to cement their place in the top four with a positive result at Turf Moor.

However, it will not be an easy game as Burnley have lost only thrice at home this season and have managed to collect 29 points from 14 games. The Clarets have surprised everyone this season and have made sure that they did not become pushovers in the Premier League. It is a commendable achievement from them so far and they will be determined to not give Tottenham some easy points to score.

“It feels like our second home” – Tottenham star unsure about staying at Wembley for the rest of the season



Christian Eriksen Tottenham

Christian Eriksen has claimed that Wembley is like a second home for Tottenham, and isn’t sure if we will stay at the stadium for the rest of the season.

Tottenham’s new ground won’t be ready this year and Daniel Levy confirmed we would be sticking to Wembley till 2019.

The club also moved to strike a deal to keep playing at Wembley till our home is completed, and Eriksen was quoted by the Sun saying:

“I don’t know if we are going to stay at Wembley for the rest of the season.

“We are happy at Wembley for more than a year now and it feels like our second home.”

The Dane added that the players couldn’t wait to play at the new ground but wanted the stadium to be perfect before the team move in.

The former Ajax star added that the professionals would be working hard to get the stadium done and the players have to concentrate on their job too.

Tottenham are fourth in the Premier League and are five points behind Manchester City, who lead the table.

Our next game is going to be a real battle as we face undefeated Chelsea. The Blues are just a point ahead of us in the Premier League, and a win will put us back in the race for the title.

(Video) Tottenham fan shares clips of new stadium’s interiors and more



Tottenham’s new stadium is inching closer to completion and we are receiving clips and pictures from various sources.

We saw Lord Alan Sugar tweet about the ground being one of the best in the world recently, and another Twitter user, AdamJ_COYS shared a number of clips of the stadium’s interior.

One of the most striking videos saw the Spurs fan capture the NFL home team and Tottenham dressing rooms.

The NFL changing rooms even have the league’s logo emblazoned on a number of areas, and we caught a glimpse of some other workers taking a snap too.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Tottenham stadium video unless we saw what the pitch looked like and the user even captured some of the seating areas which look close to completion.

The Spurs shop is one of the biggest attractions in the new ground and a video of the same was posted as well.

Tottenham’s stadium is set to be one of the best in the world but we will have to wait a little longer before any of the matches are played in the ground.

Tottenham new stadium

Tottenham will play their remaining home games of 2018 in Wembley but consturction of our new stadium seems to be chugging along. A new video showcases the exterior of the stadium, and it does seem close to completion.

There is some work to be done in the outer section of the ground, but the roof panels seem to be installed in all the right places.

The stadium was expected to be ready by September to host Liverpool, however, the club have faced delays and Daniel Levy recently claimed that we would be staying at Wembley till the end of the year.

Further, the club have negotiated a deal to play at Wembley till the new stadium is ready, and the club is expected to provide an update on the new ground in December.

The new home looks amazing, and it will be interesting to see which club we do face once the ground is ready.

White Hart Lane was a brilliant ground to play in, especially due to the vociferous backing of the Spurs faithful.
