Here is what he had to say.

On squad updates

“No bad news. This is important. We have all the players available and it’s okay apart from Romero and Giovani Lo Celso.

“Romero, as I said before, needs a long time to recover. Instead, Giovani, I think after the Norwich game, will be ready to start again training sessions with us.”

On Joe Rodon’s drive

“The first thing that I tried to do – and am doing – is find the right position for every player. And in every position you have a double player, and in the characteristic, I see Joe behind Eric [Dier] in the central position.

“Joe has showed me really, really great commitment, a will and desire to learn and improve himself. This is good. A really good example for the other players.

“He’s a solid player that works and knows he wants to improve. And I’m satisfied for the improvement I’m seeing in the training sessions about him.

On Harry Kane’s form

“First of all, I’m sure Harry is happy if we win and he doesn’t score. Because Tottenham is the first thought for us and Harry. As I said yesterday, Harry played a very good game, he was in the situation that we scored and he had a good chance to score.

“Important to have chances to score and we’re improving a lot in this aspect. I’m sure Harry is going to score many goals. I’m sure he’s going to have a good performance in the same way he had against Brentford against every team we play.

“I’m very pleased for the way that he’s playing. Then I know the striker wants to score but we want to give him many chances to score. I think we’re on the right path to do this type of situation.”

On Hugo Lloris’ contract situation

“I’ve just arrived. Only one month. At this moment, for sure, we have many situations to solve.

“Hugo is the captain of this team, captain of France and we’re talking about a top goalkeeper. He’s very focused now.

“He knows very well now we’re trying to do our best. Me as a coach, Hugo as goalkeeper and every player has to perform at high level, but for sure we’ll have time to speak about him and I consider him an important player for his experience.

“He’s a good goalkeeper first of all and many years at the club, he showed always great commitment for this club.”
