Tottenham return to Premier League action when they face Fulham in their rearranged clash at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Wednesday.

Jose Mourinho’s men were successful in both domestic cup competitions since they beat Leeds in the league last Saturday – advancing to the Carabao Cup by beating Brentford in midweek, before setting up a fourth-round FA Cup tie at Wycombe after thrashing Marine.

But now it’s back to the Premier League for Spurs, who’ll be looking to keep up the pressure on the likes of Leicester City, Manchester United and Liverpool with what would be their sixth consecutive victory against the Cottagers in all competitions.

And the Spurs boss confirmed that he has a near-fully fit squad available – with just Giovani Lo Celso, who has missed the previous five matches through injury, unavailable, whilst Erik Lamela could also return having missed the Leeds, Brentford and Marine matches due to breaking COVID-19 rules over Christmas.

Mourinho was asked whether Lamela is available, and told Football.London: “He is but I don’t know, but I think you understand what I want to mean. He can be selected for tomorrow, he can. Legally he can but I still have a decision to make.”
