Jose Mourinho has provided a team news update to journalists who have dialled into Tottenham Hotspur’s pre-Royal Antwerp press conference from Hotspur Way this afternoon.

Such is the protocol, the media are informed of the availability of the Spurs squad ahead of Mourinho answering questions prior to the visit of their Belgian opponents to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium tomorrow evening.

Both sides have already booked their place in the next round of the Europa League, however Mourinho’s side need to take all three points if they are to pip Antwerp to top spot.
Following Tottenham’s 3-3 draw against LASK, Antwerp hold a two point advantage over the North Londoners.
Tottenham have lost three of their nine European games at their new stadium, including a record 7-2 defeat by Bayern Munich last season, but have won all three there this term, scoring 14 goals in the process.
Tanguy Ndombele, who missed Sunday’s North London derby win against Arsenal is once again fit.
Erik Lamela is still sidelined, while Serge Aurier also misses out.   Mourinho has also decided to give Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg a rest.
