Tottenham are set to face Austrian outfit Wolfsberger in the Europa League first leg of round of 32.

After poor run of form in the Premier League Spurs will be looking to securing important win on Thursday in their way of trophy chase.

And ahead of the game head coach Jose Mourinho has talked to the press. Here are the highlights of Spurs boss’ press conference.

On Sergio Reguilon recovery, Mourinho said:

“No good news. [Sergio] is not coming. No setback, just the process is not going as fast as we initially thought.

“Let’s see. Weekend, next Europa League match, let’s see.”

On the team overall, Spurs boss said:

“The team that I’m going to pick is the strongest I can pick for the game.

“Last week we played two games in a very short space and I had players who ran more than 28km and 28km on a Wednesday night at Goodison Park and then Saturday afternoon is crazy, so of course I would like to play with all my first choices but that is not possible. The players that are playing are good players.”

On Hugo Lloris and Joe Hart, the Portuguese manager said:

“When a player is a top player, it’s not because of one mistake or two or three, it doesn’t mean he’s not a top player again.

“For me Alisson is one of the top five goalkeepers in the world, in the last matches, not yesterday, he’s made big mistakes but he’s in the top five goalkeepers in the world.

“Hugo is the same. He’s been performing super consistently since he recovered from injury and if he was responsible for any of our goals he’s my number one and he has all my trust and confidence.

“I’m happy Joe has played already nine matches this season which is more I think than the last two seasons.”
