Cork & Wanyama Extremely Doubtful

Cork & Wanyama Extremely Doubtful

Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that ahead of the game against Norwich City this weekend he is highly likely to be without midfield duo Jack Cork and Victor Wanyama.

Cork left the pitch in the first half in the game against Crystal Palace, and was replaced by Wanyama who is now also in the treatment room following a recurrence of the leg injury he sustained back in December.

It leaves both players unlikely to figure in the game, and Poch told saintsfc that he was confident that despite this double blow, it wouldn't affect our preparations or the game this weekend.

'Regardless of who is playing, we're still going to maintain how we play in terms of our style and our philosophy of football. Jack is progressing well, but he will have a few weeks out. Also, Wanyama felt his injury again so they, along with Kelvin Davis (back issue), are our three main doubts for tomorrow's game.'

Poch says that Dejan Lovren was also ill at the beginning of the week but he seems to have recovered well enough to return to training and he seems fine, but will be subject to a late assessment.
