Mourinho eyeing up duos return

Tottenham Hotspur v Brighton & Hove Albion – Premier League – Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – Sunday 7:15pm – Preview

Jose Mourinho hopes to have both Eric Dier and Tanguy Ndombele available after the pair missed Thursday’s Europa League defeat in Belgium.

Dier was rested for the single-goals setback to Royal Antwerp, while Mdombele weary after picking up an injury on international duty with France

“Hope so, hope so,” Mourinho confessed when asked if the pair were available.

“Dier had a little, no quite an important injury in the national team, couldn’t play a couple of matches for us. Played against Burnley, would be a risk to play tonight, but I expect him to be fine for the next one.

“Tanguy felt just a little sign of fatigue in a muscular area and he was also protected.

“Normally tomorrow he is training normal and is ready to play Sunday, and to be honest, we missed him because he gives speed to the team.

“Thinking quick, thinking fast-moving the ball quick and fast, we missed him.”
