Pochettino delivers latest Tottenham injury update ahead of cup clash
Kyle Naughton is back in the Tottenham squad, while Emmanuel Adebayor has returned to training
Kyle Naughton is in the Tottenham squad to face Newcastle in the League Cup quarter-final on Wednesday night, Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed.
The full-back has missed Spurs’ last five games with a heel injury but is set to return to the Lilywhites’ squad to face the Magpies at White Hart Lane.
“Kyle is in the squad and may start or be on the bench, we need to decide, but he’s available,” said Pochettino.
The Tottenham manager also revealed that Emmanuel Adebayor is back in training after being given permission to return home last week for personal reasons – however, the forward needs to work on his fitness.
“Ade has started to train, he’s back and now he needs to improve his condition,” Pochettino added.
“He will not be considered for tomorrow. He only started again yesterday to train and after one week away, it is impossible to be ready to play tomorrow.”
