Davinson Sanchez 'waiting' on work permit to make Tottenham debut against Burnley

Ross Barkley

Left-back Danny Rose remains absent due to a knee problem but will continue with rehabilitation and "remains on course for a return to training in a few weeks", according to the club's website. I think it is so exciting now ahead of the Champions League and Premier League.

Head coach Mauricio Pochettino has pulled off one of the signings of the summer in bringing defender Davinson Sanchez to the club, and with Serge Aurier potentially arriving from Paris Saint-Germain, everything is start to take shape for the Argentine.

The Colombian defender has signed his contract and completed a medical, but will have to wait for a work permit to be available for selection.

The 24-year-old England global striker has yet to score for Spurs in the Premier League this season, but the star has played well and has hit the frame of the opposition goal.

"It's true that in the last week he wasn't involved in the training sessions in Ajax". I think Paulo was a flawless profile for us to bring.

Pochettino said: "He has all the characteristics for success here".

"The only difference is that they are more separate from the pitch than at White Hart Lane, when you feel more pressure when they are pressing and the pitch is smaller, that is probably better for them". Obviously we're hoping for a positive campaign, but as players you can't allow yourself to think like that.

Man shot by soldiers as retaliation in Brussels
A man attempted to attack soldiers with a machete in Brussels on Friday before being shot by police, media in Belgium reported . The soldiers were not seriously hurt in the attack but one had a facial wound and the other's hand was wounded.

"Yesterday. We were playing a box and he was inside and the ball was in the air and me, bam, and he fall, and me with the ball!"

"He is so aggressive, so fast, and he loves to play with risk at his back", added Pochettino, referring to Sanchez's ability to play in a high defensive line. "Today, I was talking for one hour with Toby".

'That is why we made the effort to try to sign him.

"Everyone wanted to play at Wembley as a kid and I am no different".

HAVING JUST missed out on the Premier League crown in the last two seasons, Tottenham are considered to be genuine contenders to lift the top-flight title next spring.

Chelsea came into the game off the back of a surprise 3-2 home defeat to Burnley and the Blues were missing plenty of key players.

"Christian's technique is so good, the ball will go exactly where he sees the space, so if you make sure you attack it at the right time, then you're going to get the chances at goal".
