Many Tottenham Hotspur fans have been talking about the latest tweet from Alasdair Gold that recently emerged on social media.
Gold recently relayed some quotes from Jose Mourinho, who has said that Harry Kane, Erik Lamela, Sergio Reguilon and Carlos Vinicius are currently injured and they have missed training. Mourinho also said that while Lamela has no chance of featuring against Arsenal at the weekend, Kane, Reguilon and Vinicius could play in the north London derby.
Do you think Mourinho is playing mind games already?
Gold’s tweet carrying these comments caught the attention of many Spurs fans, who made their opinions clear about the news.

I can confirm those are mind games. Arsenal aren’t ready.

I genuinely think he’s injured and is going to miss the game. If Jose was doing mind games he would say there’s a chance of him playing even tho he knows he’s gonna miss it. I’m praying he’s fit

Spurs take on LASK in the Europa League on Thursday and currently find themselves at the top of the Premier League. They are tied on points with Liverpool, but they are ahead of them on goal difference (as per BBC Sport).
A win at the weekend would allow them to go as many as 11 points clear of Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal (as per BBC Sport).
Some other Spurs fans also reacted to the injury update provided by Mourinho.
well then,, so it begins pic.twitter.com/vUcRDmRMTw

Proper mind games

A lot of these Spurs fans believe that these are mind games from Mourinho and are perhaps an attempt to catch Arsenal off-guard.
As a Spurs player, Kane has played 13 times in all competitions against Arsenal and has scored ten times, while picking up two assists. That is a pretty formidable record and perhaps that is why Mourinho would particularly want Kane to feature against the Gunners.
Meanwhile, Reguilon has been Spurs’ fifth-best performing player in the current campaign and because of that, having him available may also be a boost for Mourinho. So Spurs fans should be happy that Kane and Reguilon could be fit to face Arsenal.
