Tottenham's Winks out for the season

Chelsea's Antonio Conte has been snubbed in favour of Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino for Gary Neville's pick of this season's manager of the year. The Tottenham Hotspur midfielder injured his ankle after landing awkwardly while making a challenge during Saturday's Premier League game against Burnley.

That loss coupled with Spurs' 2-0 win over Burnley found the opening cut to seven points with nine matches to play.

"We hope it's not a big issue but it will be hard to play again this season".

Additional scans are expected to happen to totally comprehend the degree of the harm, but Pochettino doesn't believe Winks has much hope of adding to his 21 Premier League appearances ahead of the campaign finishes.

"The fans always stuck by me when I was here, but the most important thing was getting the points and we did that".

"We showed great belief, faith and character, and that makes me very proud".

"Nothing is impossible - that is our idea and our philosophy".

'They are pushing for the title and we are fighting ourselves.

Chelsea's players taunted Spurs a year ago by making clear their support for Leicester and then held them to a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge to confirm the Foxes as champions.

Spurs, bidding to be crowned champions of England for the first time since they completed the "Double" in 1961, when they also lifted the FA Cup are in fine form.

"What happened, happened. We will see if we have learned but it's not fair to compare two seasons".

The Sun report that Tottenham fear they will lose Rose, 26, to Manchester City during the forthcoming window for a potential £50million fee and that Shaw has been lined up as a replacement. "I enjoyed my time here, we got promoted, so it was a unusual feeling, but we had to come here and get the three points".

"It's never easy to manage an away game after the worldwide break, especially after the incidents in the first half where we lost two of our players", said Lloris.

Son, who played for the Korean national team in the final qualification match, redeemed himself from a disappointing match against Syria on Tuesday.

Pochettino also gave reporters the latest on Harry Kane with the striker continuing to do light individual training as he looks to recover from an ankle injury, with a possible return date later this month.
