Mauricio Pochettino gave his press conference ahead of Tottenham’s match with West Ham and he had some bad news to reveal.

Toby Alderweireld, Ben Davies and Erik Lamela are all out injured. It is Alderweireld that is the most worrying, with the side yet to win since the Belgian was injured against West Brom.

Also on the agenda was the contract situation with Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris. Pochettino indicated that talks were ongoing and was keen to stress that both players are happy.

There was also some discussion about the week’s international matches and whether Danny Rose should have played twice for England. Watch the full press conference below.
