Rose’s dismay at being taken off at Wembley on Wednesday sparked suggestions of a rift, especially given the left-back’s recent expressions of dissatisfaction
Danny Rose felt the wound open above his left eye and the blood would not stop. The contact had come with the Apoel Nicosia substitute Roland Sallai and it was clear that the Tottenham Hotspur full-back had to come off – at least for a quick patch-up job.
Mauricio Pochettino assessed the situation and decided that “it was not necessary to take a risk”. Rose needed five stitches, there were only 20 minutes to play in what was a dead Champions League rubber and so the manager chose to keep him off and introduce Kyle Walker-Peters.

I hope teams look at those performances and realise Tottenham are a team to be feared
