How Tottenham could line up vs Everton today

“You can look at it in a different perspective,” Mourinho said, when asked why he had not settled on a partnership. “You can always play the same two or say that kind of rotation gives opportunities equally to everyone.”

Elsewhere, there is every chance that Mourinho sticks with the same team that lost 3-1 to Manchester United on Sunday, although he is likely to already be looking ahead to the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City.

Starting a clutch player like Gareth Bale could make the difference at Wembley Stadium on April 25 but it seems unlikely Mourinho would be willing to drop his favourite in Lucas Moura, nor Heung-min Son or Harry Kane tomorrow.

Matt Doherty and Ben Davies remain the only senior players sidelined, although teenage forward Dane Scarlett is also unavailable after being injured on academy duty in the week.

“[Matt Doherty is] not ready for tomorrow, he’s not ready but he’s coming,” Mourinho said.

“Ben Davies not even close to that but I’d say after 51 matches or so, in the last couple of months of the season to arrive in this situation with only two players injured, I would say we cannot complain because the work has been good and the squad as a whole is in good condition.”

Tottenham predicted XI (4-3-3): Lloris; Aurier, Alderweireld, Rodon, Reguilon; Lo Celso, Hojbjerg, Ndombele; Lucas, Son, Kane.
