Tottenham latest, injury news ahead of Europa clash, Eriksen on adapting to Pochettino

Kyle Walker

A selection of the latest stories involving Tottenham Hotspur this Wednesday evening.

Tottenham right-back Kyle Walker was photographed in training with the first team today with London24 claiming he may be in line for a return to first team action against Partizan Belgrade at White Hart Lane in the Europa League tomorrow night.

Walker has not played a competitive game for Spurs since March in the Europa League defeat to Benfica in Lisbon, and has had problems with an injury to his pelvis ever since. 

Another player expected to play a part against Partizan is midfielder Nabil Bentaleb who has returned to full training following an ankle injury, according to the London Evening Standard.

Their report indicates that if the 20-year-old keeps himself fit, he can move himself up the pecking order and that fellow midfielder Paulinho is available for either a loan or transfer in the January window.

Midfielder Christian Eriksen has said the side have struggled to adapt to the style of play and instructions that have been given out by Head Coach Mauricio Pochettino during the first few months of his reign at White Hart Lane.

He told the Evening Standard: “We are getting used to his training and how he wants us to play in the games, but of course there are times when it doesn’t connect at all.

“Overall, I think we’re doing the right thing and adapting in the right way. You need to know what your team-mates will be doing, and that is an area we need to improve.”
