Tottenham Hotspur have been without Danny Rose for nearly three months.
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino spoke to reporters during his pre-match press conference, and provided a positive update on the potential return of Danny Rose, as he continues his rehabilitation from a knee injury, as quoted by the club's official website.
The 26-year-old has not featured for Tottenham since January 31st, during his side's away game at Sunderland, but somewhat surprisingly, they haven't missed him as much as they would have first thought, with Ben Davies providing adequate cover.
Pochettino will still be desperate to have Rose back and available for selection, however, and with just six games remaining in the Premier League title race, the England international's return to action could be a huge boost to the squad as a whole.
The Argentine spoke to reporters ahead of his side's FA Cup clash with Chelsea tomorrow, and suggested that the England international left-back could be back in time to face fierce rivals Arsenal next weekend, when quizzed on a potential return date for Rose, as quoted by TottenhamHotspur.com:
Tottenham's Danny Rose
“Arsenal, maybe, but for Saturday, no. He is okay, he is doing well, he’s still not with the group but he is at a very good level.”
The North London outfit will surely have to win their remaining six games if they are to have any chance whatsoever of overhauling the Blues at the top of the table, and Rose's reintegration into the first team will surely be pivotal to their chances of doing just that.
