Report: Danny Rose expected to make swift return

Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose is confident that his injury is only a minor one.

The London Evening Standard reports that Danny Rose will be fit to play against Burnley on Easter Sunday, despite pulling out of the England squad with injury.

Rose had to withdraw from international duty this week after struggling with problems with his hip and his hamstring, but he is reportedly confident that it is only a minor issue.

The report states that Rose feels that with rest the injury will heal and he expects to be back in action for Tottenham's next game, which falls on April 5th. 

That would be a major boost for Spurs, as Rose has been one of their better performers in recent weeks and seems to be hitting top form.

Although opinions are still divided on Rose's ability at White Hart Lane, he has been playing better recently and looks their best option at left-back.

Ben Davies has not managed to have too much of an impact at White Hart Lane so far and he looks more of an option for the future than a first-team regular at this present time.

Rose, though, has upped his game this season and improved considerably since Mauricio Pochettino was appointed.

His attacking instincts could be crucial against Burnley, too, as the Clarets are likely to look to restrict Tottenham's space and hit them on the counter, rather than play on the front-foot.
