Tottenham Hotspur have been hit with a late injury blow ahead of Sunday’s clash with West Ham United in the Premier League. The two sides will do battle in North London for their first game after tonight’s closure of the domestic transfer window. But Spurs will be without two of their first-team stars for this one as boss Jose Mourinho revealed injuries to Giovani Lo Celso and Japhet Tanganga.
Jose Mourinho said “No, no, they’re still injured. It’s the hamstring [for Lo Celso]. I don’t think [it will be long], I’d say next week. He wants to play. He (Gareth Bale) has wanted to play since the day he arrived but that wasn’t possible, I’m not going to tell you if he’s going to play or not. What I will tell you is that he’s working very well. He’s working the way he probably hasn’t been able to do for some time. The planning of the recent sessions had a big focus on him. His condition is good. Does he play Sunday or Thursday, we haven’t made a decision yet. Every player is a very important player but the Gareth situation is very special because of the history. We care about him as much as he does for Tottenham.”
