Updates on a trio of Tottenham stars have been forthcoming on Friday, ahead of the club’s meeting with West Ham United.
Jose Mourinho’s men are set to make the trip to the London Stadium in two days’ time, for a Premier League derby showdown with the Hammers.
Spurs will of course head into proceedings having secured a much-needed confidence boost last night, in their return to European action.
A Europa League Last-32 first-leg clash with Austrian outfit Wolfsberger eventually saw the north Londoners all-but book their spot in the competition’s next round, courtesy of a 4-1 victory.

Spurs’ midweek win brought to an end a concerning spell of form of late, which had seen the Lilywhites fall to defeat in 5 of their prior 6 outings across all competitions.
Such domestic struggles, in turn, mean that Mourinho and co. are set to head into the weekend’s action languishing in 9th in the Premier League table, 6 points adrift of their upcoming opponents.
Bale in/Reguilon out
A 2nd-straight victory on Sunday afternoon, though, could well prove the catalyst to get Tottenham’s hunt for a Champions League berth back on track, amid an altogether unpredictable Premier League season.
And, as outlined above, ahead of their efforts to do precisely that, updates on a number of members of Jose Mourinho’s squad have this evening been forthcoming.
First, speaking in a pre-match press conference, the Spurs boss confirmed that Sergio Reguilon looks set to miss out once again, with the Spanish stopper instead in line for a return to action next week:
‘I think Reguilon next week against Wolfsberger home match.’
On Giovani Lo Celso, meanwhile, Mourinho added:
‘Not Gio. No, no, no. Gio is still a few weeks away and of course we need him because he gives us lots of qualities and options and we’ve missed him for a long time.’
