​Tottenham update on crocks Rose and Lamela

Defender Danny Rose is "on track with his recovery and expected to return in April", Tottenham have announced.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino said: "We'll see (when Rose will return). I cannot give the date but we are happy with his recovery.

"We have one week and then international break, then we will see in two or three weeks if he can stay and train with the group, then we will see the right time for him to play."

Spurs also insist that winger Erik Lamela, who has been missing for most of the season with a hip complaint, is "stepping up his rehabilitation" for a hip injury that has kept him out since October.

But Pochettino added: "I don't want to lie to you. I cannot say one week, or two week, or three week or one month. We are assessing him every day.

"Every morning we prepare something to do. Sometimes he warms up with the team, some days he feels pain and we change the plan."
