Fortunately the knee in the hip that Kieran Trippier received against Wycombe Wanderers in the FA Cup tie at the weekend hasn't cracked a rib as feared. He was very saw and needs a few days rest before he will be available again Pochettino has revealed.
"Kieran Trippier got a knock to his hip during the FA Cup game and he needs a few days more but it's not a big problem, it was only a knock and in a few days he will be available again."
That means he will be able to resume his duties as understudy to Kyle Walker and take his place in the next round of the FA Cup. There is a bit of a fixture congestion.
Thursday 16 February KAA Gent v Tottenham Hotspur - Europa League Round of 32
Saturday 18 February Fulham v Tottenham Hotspur - FA Cup Fifth Round
Thursday 23 February Tottenham Hotspur v KAA Gent - Europa League Round of 32
Sunday 26 February Stoke City v Tottenham Hotspur - Premier League
Kyle Walker will be required for the Stoke City game so you would expect Kieran Trippier to play against Gent on the Thursday. Will Walker therefore play in the first leg of the Europa League tie with Trippier playing against Fulham?
The same situation exists with Danny Rose and Ben Davies on the left hand side.
