Wenger tips Pochettino to

But Tottenham's medical staff had not anticipated such a lengthy lay-off for the 28-year-old Alderweireld on November 1 when a hamstring problem forced him off after just 24 minutes of a Champions League clash with Real Madrid.

"Maybe after Christmas - that's the expectation".

The Belgian will now miss tomorrow's north London derby against Arsenal and is likely also to sit out games against Borussia Dortmund, Apoel Nicosia and Manchester City over the next month.

Despite featuring in both of England's friendlies against Germany and Brazil last week, the 27-year-old was told to train at Hotspur Way with the other players who were not involved at the Emirates Stadium. "Like Lamela, after one year out, we need to look after their fitness", said the Tottenham manager. "He is doing well, but we need to wait".

Spurs go into Saturday's match as favourites, having finished above Arsene Wenger's Arsenal in the league for the first time 22 years last season, but Pochettino says the Frenchman is one of the greatest managers in football history and should not be underestimated.

"I am happy because if they can not play Saturday it is sure they are close to play Tuesday (at Borussia Dortmund) or next weekend (against West Brom)".

United defender Luke Shaw may be part of a deal that sees Rose move to Manchester as early as the January transfer window, with Pochettino a firm admirer of Shaw after he nurtured him through the ranks at Southampton. That does not mean today we are above Arsenal.
