Injury blow: Danny Rose missed Tottenham's win over Swansea: Rex Features

Danny Rose is set to spend more time on the Tottenham sidelines having once again damaged the knee which forced him to miss the start of the season.

The Spurs full-back, who has been linked with a move to top-four rivals Manchester United since the summer, missed the first two months of the season due to a knee ligament injury – making his first appearance of the campaign at Real Madrid in October.

Having slowly returned to the fold since the trip to Spain, making 11 appearances in all competitions, Rose missed the trip to Swansea due to a problem in the same knee.

While Mauricio Pochettino said the England international still needs to be assessed, he confirmed it was ‘impossible’ for Rose to train ahead of Tuesday’s game.

“We need to assess him. After the game against Southampton it was impossible to train and now we are going to assess him. Then the club will give information about what has happened,” Pochettino said.

“I am concerned about everyone when they cannot be available to play. Sometimes it is small things. You know in this situation we cannot manage because I am not a specialist. I am not a doctor.

“Always you are worried because you want the players available and fit to play, so you can make your decision. But we need to wait and we will assess him in the next few days.

The 27-year-old is set to miss the Premier League clash with West Ham on Thursday as well as the FA Cup third round encounter with Wimbledon on Sunday, though Pochettino was remiss to put a timescale on his absence.

“I think I cannot say anything,” he added. “But my feeling, my perception is it would be difficult to play in 48 hours.”

    EU eyes Brexit customs deal to break Irish deadlock - sources

    European Union negotiators are looking at ways to promise Britain a customs deal that could stretch Brussels' Brexit red lines but might break a deadlock over the Irish border, EU sources close to the talks have told Reuters. Accounts of how British and EU negotiators came close to a deal on Oct. 13 focus on how Prime Minister Theresa May balked at an EU demand for a "backstop" clause. This could put Northern Ireland in a special relationship with the EU that might distance it from the British mainland to avoid putting up customs posts on Britain's only EU land border, with Ireland.

    What are the Brexit terms that have been agreed so far?

    Theresa May will tell MPs "95%" of the UK's divorce deal with the EU has been agreed. The prime minister will deliver a bullish message to the House of Commons later on Monday, when she will state "the shape of the deal across the vast majority of the withdrawal agreement is now clear". Last week, the EU ruled "not enough progress" has been achieved in Brexit talks and so shelved plans for a special summit next month to sign off on a UK divorce deal.

    Brexiteers accused of using firearms debate for 'proxy row' over EU withdrawal

    Prominent Brexiteers have been accused of attempting to hijack a firearms debate in parliament in a "proxy row" over Britain's departure from the European Union. It comes after MPs from both the Conservative and Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) - hostile to Theresa May's Brexit plans - tabled an amendment to a government bill aimed at reclassifying certain firearms. The proposed change has the support of dozens of Conservative MPs and aims at preventing a government-imposed ban on high-energy rifles, "over 13,600 joules at the muzzle".

    Uber, Ola drivers strike in India, demanding higher fares

    Hundreds of drivers for ride-hailing giant Uber and its local rival Ola went on strike in the two biggest Indian cities, Delhi and Mumbai, on Monday, demanding higher fares to meet rising fuel costs that are eating away at their incomes. Fuel prices in India have risen more than 20 percent since the start of the year but drivers say fares have not grown at the same rate, making it difficult for them to meet expenses despite working longer hours. "The companies don't understand the issues drivers face ... they have reduced fares when they should be paying a higher rate," said Sunil Borkar, secretary at Mumbai taxi drivers' union Maharashtra Rajya Rashtriya Kamgar Sangh.
