Tottenham Hotspur left-back Danny Rose has returned to full training but will not feature when Manchester United visit North London on Sunday (14 May). Erik Lamela and Harry Winks will also miss the last match at White Hart Lane with the two offensive midfielders are not expected to return to action until next season.

Rose, 26,has yet to play a game since suffering a knee injury during the goalless draw at Sunderland on 31 January. The England international left-back has missed the last 12 Premier League games and will remain on the sidelines for the visit of Manchester United.

However, Spurs have confirmed that the defender is back in full training – and it looks as though he just needs to gain some match fitness before returning to action.

"Danny continues to be monitored, having returned to full training with the First Team squad earlier this week, but is not yet match fit," Tottenham confirmed in the club official website ahead of the clash with United.

There is some hope to see Rose playing a part in the remaining two trips to Leicester City and Hull City.

However, Lamela and Winks "will miss the rest of the season" as the duo continue their rehabilitation from injuries.

Meanwhile, Spurs confirmed that Kyle Walker-Peters, Josh Onomah and United States centre-back Cameron Carter-Vickers will miss the remaining three games as the youngsters have been called by their respective national teams for the Under 20 World Cup in South Korea.

Pochettino believes that the experience is going to be positive for the trio, and suggested he plans to give them more playing time with the first team in the 2017-18 campaign.

"It's important because it will be a great experience. I told Josh Onomah and Kyle Walker-Peters to be careful in the first game because it will be against Argentina and it will be tough. No, I think it will be a great experience for them," the Tottenham boss, said as quoted by Football.London.

"When you are young and you have the chance to play in the U20 World Cup, it's always fantastic to go and play. Of course, always that type of international competition will help them to develop their skills and improve and then it will benefit us.

"They are players that we are thinking about for the future. Yes, we expect that they will be involved next season more than they were this season."
