Danny Rose has been a huge loss for Spurs since injuring his knee in the 0-0 draw with Sunderland.
The left-back was originally scheduled to feature against Everton tomorrow, but his recovery has clearly suffered a setback.
Speaking on Sky Sports’ Soccer Am, Rose admitted he’s still several weeks off making a return.
Take a look at what he had to say below:

The England international will join long-term absentee Erik Lamela on the sidelines, but Mauricio Pochettino has much more positive news elsewhere, with Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen both having recovered from the knocks they picked up in last Sunday’s 4-0 win over Stoke.
Harry Kane was also a doubt to face the Toffees, but he’s likely to start up front.
Ben Davies will once again start in Rose’s place, and to be fair to the Welshman, he looked much improved against Stoke.
Everton will present a much tougher test, however, as Ronald Koeman’s men like to play attacking football, so Davies may not be able to get forward as much as he’d like.
Spurs’ hope now will be that Rose is back for their end of season run-in as they try to maintain second place in the league and push for their first FA Cup win since 1991.
