Ryan Sessegnon TEAMtalk

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has given an update on Ryan Sessegnon’s chances of making his long-awaited debut against Everton on Sunday.

Having joined Spurs on transfer deadline day from Fulham, the 19-year-old has yet to make an appearance for the club due to a hamstring injury he sustained in the summer.

Sessegnon has been training with the rest of his teammates for the past couple of weeks at Hotspur Way, but Pochettino has opted against including him in a matchday squad so far.

However, with Danny Rose suspended for the trip to Goodison Park, Pochettino has spoken about Sessegnon’s chances of being involved at the weekend.

The Spurs chief said: “I cannot say that he’s complete in the way that we can say we trust him to play 90 minutes. We have a big squad, it’s difficult to give the possibility, but he’s still young.


“He needs to work hard, he had a long period of injury, but for sure he is going to get an opportunity to play in the future.

“We’re assessing all the players this weekend. We have tomorrow a session and then travel to Liverpool and we’ll see if he can be involved.”

Pochettino also discussed the importance of having a full week to build up for the clash with the Toffees, adding: “It was an important week to recover the feelings after a tough game against Liverpool.

“We know very well it is our responsibility to deliver a very good job and very good performance on Sunday against a very good team like Everton trying to win because it’s going to be the best medicine to fix all.”
