Pochettino: 'No decision on Alderweireld'

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino refuses to confirm whether Toby Alderweireld will start Saturday's North London derby against Arsenal.

Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has refused to confirm whether Toby Alderweireld will be in his starting XI for Saturday's North London derby against Arsenal.

Alderweireld played the full 90 minutes of Tottenham's 2-0 win over Newport County in the FA Cup on Wednesday night.

The Belgium international has not featured in the Premier League since the end of October, however, due to a long-term hamstring problem.

The 28-year-old has been tipped to resume his partnership with Jan Vertonghen this weekend, although Pochettino refused to give anything away when questioned on the matter during his pre-match press conference.

"No decision. Yesterday was a game that was important to win and I am happy because the team showed a solid, professional performance and I am happy with everyone," Pochettino told reporters.

Tottenham will enter this weekend's match one place and four points above sixth-placed Arsenal in the Premier League table.
