LASK v Spurs - team news
Wed 02 December 2020, 13:43|Tottenham Hotspur
Jose Mourinho reports ‘some problems’ on the injury front ahead of our UEFA Europa League clash against LASK in Austria on Thursday evening (5.55pm UK).
Indeed, Jose listed Erik Lamela, Harry Kane, Carlos Vinicius, Sergio Reguilon and Toby Alderweireld as all missing for the trip to Linz. Joe Rodon, who impressed on his full debut in the Premier League at Chelsea on Sunday, is also ineligible for the group stage, alongside Gedson Fernandes and Paulo Gazzaniga.
Speaking after training on Wednesday, Jose told us: “We have some problems, we have some injuries, we have some situations that are not very clear, but the team is good, the players are good. We have a good squad, we have good solutions and we have to win. We have to go there with the mentality that we have to win.”
Asked in his pre-LASK press conference if Harry had a chance of being fit to face Arsenal on Sunday, Jose added: “I’m not going to tell you the nature of his injury, but I think he has a good chance. I don’t want to lie, I don’t want to hide anything in relation to if he’s going to play or not… I think he’s going to play, that’s my feeling.”
Jose also put Sergio in that bracket for Sunday, but suggested Erik wouldn’t be ready.
There was also good news on Toby’s fitness from Jose.
