Tottenham's Ben Davies has revealed he was 'crippled with pain' as he helped his side reach the Champions League final last season.

Davies played 48 times for Spurs and Wales last year but it's only now that he's untroubled by injury.

'I was struggling with a groin problem all last season,' says the 26-year-old left-back ahead of today's game at Everton.

'I didn't have much of a summer holiday. I went to California but took a physio with me and literally worked every single day.
