Danny Rose could return to the Tottenham squad for the FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea at Wembley later this month, according to Mauricio Pochettino.
The club tweeted an update on Rose earlier today, claiming the left-back is due to start ‘outdoor work’ next week.

In his pre-Bournemouth press conference, Pochettino suggested Rose could play against Chelsea depending on the timing of his recovery, as relayed by journalist Ben Pearce below.

Ben Davies has gradually improved since being tasked with deputising for Rose, who injured his knee in the 0-0 draw at Sunderland in January.
But Spurs will hope Rose can return either for the Chelsea game in nine days or the North London derby, which takes place the week after at White Hart Lane.
