Tottenham vs West Ham
Spurs are set to return to competitive action in around 24 hours’ time.
Jose Mourinho and co. will welcome West Ham to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, for a 4:30 pm kick-off.
Tottenham head into the tie in pretty solid form, with their last outing having seen the north Londoners down Manchester United by 6 goals to 1.
They also have a decent record against the Hammers, with Mourinho having guided the Lilywhites to back-to-back victories over their capital rivals last term.
However, West Ham will no doubt head into Sunday’s clash brimming with confidence, having seen off Leicester and Wolves in their last two league outings, courtesy of an aggregate score of 7-0.
Mourinho on Bale & Dier
Ahead of Sunday’s clash, Jose Mourinho held his latest press conference on Friday.
During the presser, the Spurs boss discussed a number of topics, one of came in the form of Gareth Bale.
The Welshman is yet to feature for Tottenham this season, but there is an expectation that he will be involved vs West Ham.
Speaking ahead of the London derby clash, Mourinho was therefore asked how great it is to see Bale with a smile on his face once again, to which the Portuguese tactician responded:
“We are all happy with that, and it’s great to listen from Sergio Reguilon that shared a dressing room with him in Madrid – it’s great to hear from Sergio that Gareth looks like a different guy.
“So if he’s happy with us and then he goes home, and he can share that happiness with family, it’s the best thing that can happen to him. But he needs his football, he needs to feel like a top player again.
“And that’s why I’m saying all the decisions we are going to make with him, I’m not saying for him, I’m saying with him. All the decisions will be thinking first about the team but never forgetting what is the best for him.”
Mourinho was also drawn on the injury situation in his squad, with Eric Dier seemingly the only player in doubt to feature on Sunday:
“Apart from Eric Dier yes, so Eric is the only one that arrived with a problem. A problem that maybe – it’s still 1230 on Friday so too early – will keep him out of the West Ham match. Maybe but not definitely.”
