Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has said that his team can handle the upcoming encounters despite having injury concerns. Spurs will be without Danny Rose and Dele Alli for 10 days while there’s no telling when Jan Vertonghen may return. In the next 7 weeks, Spurs take on PSV twice and against Manchester City.

Pochettino said, “It was a good time for us because we are going to recover a few players like Christian and Mousa Dembele. The most important thing is that we start to recover players. It will be a tough month of competition for us.

There are a lot of games ahead and it’s so important to have nearly all the squad fit to compete and play and to give options to rotate and share the games because it will be tough, the months we have ahead. We have seven games in one month, in four weeks, and it’s so important to have all fit to compete and to give the level that we want.”

Spurs have won their last three Premier League matches and are currently 5th in the table. They have the same number of points as rivals Arsenal but goal-difference sees Arsenal placed higher.

Tottenham resume their Premier League campaign against West Ham tomorrow.
