Mauricio Pochettino insisted he is “not concerned” by Danny Rose’s latest knee problem after Tottenham edged past Swansea City on Tuesday night.
Rose missed Spurs’ 2-0 win at the Liberty Stadium – you can watch the goals from that game here.
Reports emerged during the match that Rose had suffered a reoccurrence of the knee injury that saw him miss nine months of action in 2017.
But after the game, journalist Dan Kilpatrick revealed that Pochettino said he is “not concerned” by Rose’s latest injury, calling it a “small thing.”

Tottenham regularly rotate their full-backs, so Rose’s availability is hugely important, especially with the team’s busy January schedule.
