Danny Rose has competed with Ben Davies for a place on the left hand side of Tottenham Hotspur's defence.

Danny Rose has told Sky Sports that he has no problems with Mauricio Pochettino’s rotation policy at Tottenham Hotspur.

Rose and Ben Davies have been in direct competition for the left-back spot at White Hart Lane this season, and the pair have been swapped in and out of the team.

Davies has been favoured for some of Spurs’ matches, while Rose has got the nod for others.

However, Rose insists that he is not concerned about failing to have a sustained run of games in the starting line-up, as he appreciates Davies is more suited for some games than him.

"There will be games where the gaffer thinks Ben will be able to do better than me and vice-versa," the 25-year-old said. "I've got no problems with it.”

Davies is generally considered the more secure defender of Tottenham’s two left-backs, while Rose offers slightly more in a forward sense.

Pochettino also rotates his right-backs, with Kieran Trippier and Kyle Walker competing for a place on the opposite side of the defence.

Pochettino wants his full-backs to be attacking weapons, as well as contribute in a defensive sense, meaning the role requires a lot of energy.

Pochettino’s policy has been proven correct in recent weeks, as Rose and Trippier have both scored important goals for Tottenham, to ensure that they maintain their challenge for the title.
