Danny Rose was involved in Tottenham’s training session ahead of their Champions League game with Inter Milan.

The left-back has been out of action since October with a groin injury but has now recovered.

Victor Wanyama did not take part in training ahead of Spurs’ must-win clash at Wembley on Wednesday.

Despite his return to training it does not appear as if Rose will feature against the Serie A side, with the club saying he is “building up match fitness”.

Davinson Sanchez (hamstring) and Kieran Trippier (groin) trained separately, though the latter is nearing a return.

Wanyama has a knee injury and will not play while Mousa Dembele is also out with an ankle problem.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino said that Juan Foyth being ineligible to play in the Champions League was “painful”.

The 20-year-old was not named in Tottenham’s squad for the competition but has impressed since coming into the side at domestic level.

“That is so painful,” Pochettino said.

“It’s a mistake we made that at this level of football we cannot repeat again. We need to find a solution.”

On Dele Alli, so impressive against Chelsea at the weekend, the manager said he gets “bored” if he is not under pressure.

“He loves a challenge,” Pochettino said.

“He is a winner. His mentality is that he gets bored quickly when he doesn’t feel the pressure.

“When he is under pressure he is unbelievable.”
