Tottenham must be ready for Man City backlash, says defender Davies

"Of course after the match Harry said he touched the ball with his right shoulder", Pochettino told reporters on Thursday.

"Harry's a very honest person, he's not going to lie about this situation". I'm sure he's going to play [before] the end of the season.

'I promise it's not an enormous deal.

Seventh-placed Burnley and Leicester, eighth, clash at Turf Moor on Saturday in a game that could go a long way to determining who gets the final Europa League place. No one talked about it this week inside the club.

Tottenham head in to the weekend action sitting fourth in the Premier League table - level on points with Liverpool - but they can move to within just one point of Man Utd with a win over Man City.

City defender Kyle Walker is set to line up against his former side, having left Spurs last summer, and Pochettino said: "Of course, the fans feel disappointed that he made a decision to move to City".

Mauricio Pochettino has been speaking to the media at his pre-match press conference this afternoon and he's provided a team news and injury update ahead of the game.

United, on a high after their derby win, which was their fifth straight league victory, will expect to pick up another three points at Old Trafford against a West Brom side that looks doomed for the drop and has caretaker manager Darren Moore in charge for the second time.

"I think after seven, eight months that it [the transfer] happened I think he deserves a good reception from the fans".
