Danny Rose and Dele Alli are set to undergo fitness tests before Tottenham’s FA Cup quarter-final at Swansea on Saturday, according to the London Evening Standard.

Both players were substituted during Sunday’s Premier League victory at Bournemouth, when Spurs came from a goal down to win 4-1 thanks to goals from Alli and Serge Aurier either side of a Son Heung-min double.

Alli left the pitch feeling his thigh, while Rose was believed to be suffering from fatigue.

Indeed, Rose has struggled to return to full fitness since coming back from a long-term knee injury earlier in the season. Alli, meanwhile, has barely been given a rest this term.

The Evening Standard believes the duo will be assessed on Thursday and Friday to determine their availability for Saturday’s trip to Swansea.

With Mauricio Pochettino keen to rotate to his full-backs on a regular basis, Rose probably wasn’t set to start anyway. Ben Davies will almost certainly feature from the beginning against his former club.

Alli’s absence could result in a rare start for January signing Lucas Moura.

Harry Kane will definitely miss the quarter-final having been ruled out until next month with an ankle injury.




  1. my side would be Lloris Aurier Sanchez Vertongen Davies Wanyama Winks Son Lucas Lamela Llorente
    Bench Sterling Walker Peters Trippier Ericksen Alli Vorm Sissoko

    Resting Dier and Dembele for Semis and Final is a risk but Kane injured using academy striker as back up Son to play 90 in his favoured position…this attack is our fastest midfield #coys
