Harry Kane is an injury concern for Tottenham ahead of Sunday’s north London derby against Arsenal after missing training on Wednesday.
The Spurs captain, along with Sergio Reguilon, Carlos Vinicius and Erik Lamela, were not pictured in training ahead of their Europa League clash at Linz ASK on Thursday.
When asked about their absence Mourinho confirmed in his pre-match press conference the quartet is injured, with Lamela having missed their past five games with a calf injury.
“I don’t believe he [Lamela] has a chance for the weekend,” Mourinho said. “Harry, Vinicius and Sergio there is a chance for them to be [fit] for the weekend.”
Mourinho then refused to reveal the nature of Kane’s injury, but added there was a “good chance” the striker would return to face Arsenal.
He added: “I’m not going to tell you the nature of his injury. I think there’s a good chance [for Sunday], I don’t want to lie, I don’t want to hide anything in relation to ‘Oh is he going to play or not’. I think he’s going to play, that’s my feeling.”
