Juan Foyth has been ruled out of Tottenham’s meeting with West Ham United on Tuesday night with a knee injury.
Foyth did not play in the draw with Manchester United last Friday and is still not ready to return, but Jose Mourinho said he hopes the Argentine will be able to play a part in the run-in if he recovers in time.
#thfc Foyth is sidelined with a knee injury again tomorrow but Mourinho said he’s hopeful he’ll be able to play this season. GLC still being assessed regularly on troublesome groin but in contention vs West Ham. Tanganga still sidelined.

That’s according to the London Evening Standard’s Dan Kilpatrick, who virtually attended Mourinho’s press conference on Monday afternoon. Kilpatrick also revealed Japhet Tangaga is still sidelined, but Giovani Lo Celso is in contention despite continuing assessment on a groin problem.
Mourinho had better news on Lucas Moura, who has recovered and could play a part alongside the returning Dele Alli on Tuesday. As such, the Spurs boss welcomed the fact he had “only good news” to report in terms of injuries – at least when it came to attackers.
It will be interesting to see how Tottenham line up against West Ham given Mourinho now has a full array of attacking players to pick from.
