Here is what he had to say …

On reports of a virus in the squad

“If you remember the last game, we had three or four cases of stomach problems. In this week I have to be honest we had a couple of cases but we overcame the situation. Also members of the staff, one day they were not feeling so good. I don’t know why, the last week but also this week we faced this situation.

“In this moment though this virus is the last of our problem. We are close to a big achievement and we are totally focused. The situation of the players is the same as the last game.”

On Harry Kane’s fitness

“Yes for sure, and because in the last game we had Deki Kulusevski and he didn’t train on Saturday but was good to play. Harry doesn’t want to miss this type of game.”

On ‘Lasagnegate’ in 2006

“I don’t want to know this story. I’m not interested to go deeper into this story. (Laughs) I think that we are in a good moment of form. We have worked well this week and prepared very well. We have to be concentrated.

“There is the whole season behind this game and we can reach something amazing for us because I think no one can imagine top four this season. We have worked hard and now everything is in our hands.”

On whether Son will take penalties

“Before there is the interest of the team and Harry Kane is our penalty taker. If there is a penalty Kane has to kick. After that I’m pleased for Sonny, he deserves to stay in this position, but first the team.”

On Cristian Romero’s fitness

“Romero had a traumatic injury. He is not available. We have the same players as the last game against Burnley. Not less, not more. We have to be ready to try and fight and get the result.”
