According to an update by journalist Alasdair Gold, Jose Mourinho has ‘confirmed‘ Sergio Reguilon, Harry Kane, Carlos Vinicius and Erik Lamela are all injured ahead of the clashes with LASK and Arsenal.
Writing on Twitter, Gold relayed Jose Mourinho’s news after Toby Alderweireld’s return – with the journalist going on to say that the Belgian is back after recovering from a muscular problem.
Mourinho confirms four players missing through injury
Alderweireld picked up this knock against Man City a fortnight ago, missing both Spurs’ matches against Ludogorets and Chelsea last week, but news of the centre-back’s return could definitely excite Lilywhites with the north London derby so close.
Spurs had to utilise summer signing Joe Rodon at the weekend in place of the colossus, with the Welshman enjoying a solid debut against Frank Lampard’s side but admitting it was difficult.
However, coming after the Alderweireld boost, Mourinho has now confirmed Reguilon, Kane, Lamela and Vinicius are all out injured ahead of Tottenham’s tie with LASK.
Just asked Mourinho about Kane, Reguilon, Lamela and Vinicius missing training. He confirmed they are all injured: “Erik Lamela I don’t believe has a chance for the weekend. Harry, Vinicius and Sergio I believe there is a chance for the weekend [to face Arsenal].”

Transfer Tavern take
Whether or not they’ll be available for Arsenal remains to be seen, but it appears LASK on Thursday evening will definitely come too soon.
Indeed, having Alderweireld back from an originally worrying injury was a boost, but Mourinho could now be without four first team players for LASK.
It will be a long and drawn out Premier League campaign, with resting players key to avoiding serious trouble.
