Pochettino: Kieran Trippier to be assessed after twisting ankle against Juventus

Paulo Gazzaniga of Southampton looks on during the Barclays Premier League match between Southampton and Aston Villa at St Mary's Stadium

The fact that he has asked for a transfer means he could be a slightly cheaper alternative for Tottenham, who also need another striker, an additional winger and perhaps another right-back, especially if Kieran Trippier's injury is worse than hoped.

Full back Kieran Trippier left the match in the first half with a twisted ankle, leaving the right flank in the hands of academy graduate Kyle Walker-Peters, and putting the finest possible point on the fact that Spurs desperately need to sign a new right back. "It's his ankle", the Argentine said, as reported by the BBC.

Trippier first needed treatment after only four minutes but was able to continue and set up the opening goal for Harry Kane.

"Because every six months we need to review every single situation and Josh, after the U20 World Cup I think in his mind it was too play more and prove himself that he can play", Pochettino explained, according to the Birmingham Mail.

"When you get that jersey you've got to try to make the best of the opportunity".

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino admitted the full-back's fitness was uncertain after he finished the Wembley encounter on crutches and wearing a protective boot. Now the feeling is good and we hope it is not a big issue.

First Hindu in Pak govt in over two decades
Late politician Rana Chandra Singh served in the government of the Pakistan Peoples Party as a Hindu minister for the last time. The post of the new foreign minister is now given to Khawaja Muhammad Asif, who was previously minister of defence and power.

He said: "We need to assess him on Monday and then we'll see".

"I can not say or guess if he will play against Newcastle United (August 13)".

Ben Davies knows how it feels to be down the pecking order under Mauricio Pochettino.

Both teams then started to make loads of changes and that seemed to take the steam out of the hosts play and that allowed the visitors to start to control the rest of the game. "But we are looking to add in different positions of the pitch, different players".

With Kyle Walker recently joining Manchester City, the injury could leave Tottenham without an established right-back ahead of their first Premier League of the season at Newcastle, but Pochettino was unable to give a timeframe for Trippier's recovery.

The Spurs boss conceded the ex-Burnley right-back was anxious at half time, but far more relaxed come the end of the game.
