Latest Spurs news: Mauricio Pochettino claims Spurs will monitor each player ahead of Champions League final

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino says that the club will monitor each player ahead of the Champions League final against Liverpool.

Spurs face several injury concerns with Harry Kane, Harry Winks and Jan Vertonghen in a race against time to feature against the Reds.

Vertonghen was the latest big name to pick up an injury after he left the second leg against Ajax on crutches.

Kane has ankle ligament damage while Winks underwent groin surgery recently. Spurs have three weeks before the final on 1st June, and Pochettino has provided his players with a two-day break, according to the Mirror.

The Argentine was hopeful of the entire squad’s availability and each player would be assessed individually (h/t Mirror):

“I hope to have all the squad available but if someone is not available then it’s about the team. We need to be natural, to apply common sense.

“It is not a pre-season but it is not going to be a holiday. We are going to assess each individual and give more individual work than collective.”

Spurs need one more big performance this season

Tottenham’s best performances this season have come in the Champions League, and we would need one more big push in Madrid.

Liverpool might have won the two Premier League fixtures against us this season, but anything can happen in a final.

Lucas Moura’s hat-trick against Ajax will give him a lot of confidence going into the tie and Son Heung-min could be the key to breaching the Liverpool defence.
