Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho states that he no injury worries ahead of Spurs clash against Sheffield United.

The Portuguese boss has nearly a full-strength squad to chose from, with only Giovanni Lo Celso the only casualty at present.

Mourinho is expected to retain the majority of the starting XI that featured in the 1-1 draw against Fulham in midweek.

Serge Aurier, Eric Dier and Sergio Reguilon are all expected to start against The Blades. Toby Alderweireld is expected to replace Davinson Sánchez at centre back.

In midfield, Mourinho is likely to make one change. Harry Winks started against Fulham, and is expected to give way for Moussa Sissoko. Pierre-Emile Højbjerg will retain his position alongside Sissoko in central midfield.

Sissoko started in one of the three attacking positions behind Harry Kane against Fulham, but will be dropped further back. Lucas Moura is expected to take his place on the right-hand side.

Son Heung-min and Tanguy Ndombele are expected to retain their places, in behind Kane.
