Tottenham Hotspurs boss Mauricio Pochettino could include Danny Rose against Borussia Dortmund as will also have to rest some players tonight.

Spurs have already qualified for the Champions League and will only need one victory from their two remaining games to be the winners of Group H. This means that Pochettino could rotate his line-up that may include Rose.

Rose was left out of the squad on Saturday where they lost to Arsenal amidst speculations that the player was fit to play.

But Pochettino stood his ground and insisted that Rose needed to stay in training as he doesn’t want to strain him with a 90 minute play time.

“He is doing well,” Pochettino said. “The training session on Saturday was tough for him and today he will train with the group and then we will decide if tomorrow he will play or not.

“I cannot speak about the rumours. If you ask if Danny Rose is here and do we have an issue, I say no. Any issue? No, no issue with him.”

“They were fit [to play against Arsenal], both Dele Alli and Harry Kane,” Pochettino said.

“I have spoken with everyone and we have conversations with the 25 players. Then when I get the perception I’m going to decide.

“We only rest players who need to rest for different reasons — always what’s best for them and the team. I hope not too many rests because it’s a Champions League game and we want to win and it’s better to win tomorrow than to wait for the last game against Apoel.

“The objective was to qualify and we achieved that but it’s important to finish first if we can.”
