Jose Mourinho has hinted that four of Tottenham’s most talented players could all play together in Sunday’s home Premier League clash with Burnley.
Spurs take on Sean Dyche’s men looking to get back to winning ways in the league after a run of five defeats in six games.
Their confidence will have been boosted by Thursday night’s Europa League mauling of Wolfsberger.
Dele Alli and Gareth Bale both scored impressive goals in that game. Mourinho was asked if the duo could start alongside Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min against the Clarets.
“Did you give me four names or 11? You want to give the other seven?”, Mourinho joked.
“You could see against West Ham, it’s not from the start. But you had Bale, Lucas, Harry, Sonny, Dele so you had it.
“We didn’t turn the game around but we left the game with positive feelings.”
Mourinho will be desperate for his side to go on a run of form after a disastrous spell.
There have been calls in some quarters for him to lose his job. But with an easier run of games on the horizon, plus a Europa League last 16 tie against Dinamo Zagreb coming soon, the Portuguese is just on his side turning their form around.
Spurs squad in strong shape
As for team news ahead of the Burnley clash, Mourinho admitted that, bar Giovani Lo Celso, everyone is fit.
He added: “Serge [Aurier] is fine, he’s fine. Trained today with the team without any limitations.
“As I was saying, everybody is training with the team and Gio [Lo Celso] is the only one that is not in conditions to play this weekend.
“I think even next week will be quite premature for not to say impossible, but he’s coming.
“Today for the first time in a long time, the medical department could watch the draw as they didn’t have any players inside.”
