London, Aug 28: Midfielder Christian Eriksen is yet to recover from a knee injury and has been ruled out of Tottenham Hotspur’s English Premier League (EPL) football tournament’s home match against Everton on Saturday. The Danish international missed last week’s 1-1 draw against club Leicester City and head coach Mauricio Pochettino on Thursday said that same problem is set to keep the 23-year-old out of Saturday’s match.

“Christian Eriksen is still out and we need to assess some players,” Tottenham head coach Mauricio told the club’s website on Thursday. There is better news on English international winger Andros Townsend, however, as the winger has rejoined the squad in training after shoulder and ankle problems kept him out of Tottenham’s first three games of the season.

“Andros Townsend is in the group again and may be available to be in the squad, but after that there are no big issues or problems,” Pochettino added. Also Watch: Jack Wilshire trolls Tottenham Hotspur during Arsenal’s FA Cup victory parade.
