Mauricio Pochettino has held his press conference ahead of Tottenham’s Premier League meeting with Manchester United on Wednesday.

The Spurs boss revealed Toby Alderweireld is not fit enough to be involved, but four players are ready to return: Hugo Lloris, Danny Rose, Christian Eriksen and Erik Lamela.

Serge Aurier and Harry Winks have also been ruled out, but their issues aren’t thought to be serious.

Pochettino went on to praise Jose Mourinho, calling the Manchester United coach “the best manager in the world.”

The Argentine was also asked about the imminent signing of Lucas Moura from PSG, but refused to comment until the transfer is finalised – a deal is expected to be confirmed tomorrow.
