Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino addressed the media during his pre-match press conference today, and responded when asked whether Ben Davies is fit for tomorrow's game against Manchester City, as quoted by Football.London.

The 26-year-old Spurs left-back underwent groin surgery in the summer, but he has been training with the first-team over the past few weeks.


Danny Rose started Tottenham's Premier League opener against Aston Villa last weekend, but it seems as though Davies will be pushing the England international for his place against City tomorrow.

Pochettino responded when asked by reporters if the Welshman is back and available for selection, as quoted by Football.London:

"Yes, I know you are going to ask me about names. Now we have a lot of numbers of players who are going to be involved. We still have some injured players. It will be difficult the selection in the next few weeks, but that is my job to be right in the selection and try to perform in our best way to win games."

Considering the fact that Davies has been out for so long, Rose will surely get the nod to start Tottenham's game against City.

Having him back and available for selection will be a real boost for Pochettino, however.

The Argentine needs all hands on deck, as he looks to guide his side to their first league title since 1961, and having Davies back to provide competition for Rose should not be underestimated.
