United vs Spurs - team news

Posted on 7 August 2015  - 11:05

Mauricio Pochettino will assess the fitness of four players ahead of our Premier League opener at Manchester United tomorrow (Saturday, August 8, 12.45pm).


Hugo Lloris (wrist) and Ryan Mason (knee) both returned to action against AC Milan in the Audi Cup on Wednesday after recovering from injury. Both entered the fray after 54 minutes at the Allianz Arena.

Meanwhile, Roberto Soldado (back) and Andros Townsend (shoulder) have missed our pre-season friendlies against the MLS All Stars, Real Madrid and Milan.

Mauricio reported on Friday: "We have a good feeling for Hugo and Ryan, maybe not to compete for 90 minutes, but to be in the squad.

"Soldado didn't play in the Audi Cup because of a problem in his lower back, Andros also has a problem in his shoulder. We need to assess them in the last training session today."

Mauricio also reported that Alex Pritchard will soon start to train with the squad after being ruled out of pre-season with an ankle injury sustained in the UEFA Under-21 Championship. "It was a shame because we expect a lot from him," added Mauricio.
