Nigel Pearson’s men are the most in-form side in the Premier League over the last five matches, taking 13 points from a possible 15. Can Mourinho and Spurs stop their rise up the table?
EXCLUSIVE BY MATT HUGHES: It is understood that a power cut at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium before kick off led to serious concerns that the technology would not be available for the game.
Spurs boss Jose Mourinho is plotting a swoop for Chelsea star Willian with the Brazilian’s contract set to expire in the summer, seven years on from the north London side missing out on their target.
Spurs are without a recognised striker with Kane out injured until April. They have been linked with Piatek and Mourinho admitted the club are doing all they can to sign a striker before the deadline.
Jose Mourinho insists Tottenham have not yet received an offer for wantaway midfielder Christian Eriksen from Inter Milan and plans to involve him at Watford on Saturday.
Tottenham have stepped up their interest in Norwich defender Max Aarons as the north London side identify the 20-year-old as the man to solve their problem area at right back.
The 19-year-old spent the first half of the season back with his first club Leeds United after joining Spurs in the summer for £7million but the deal was cancelled due to a lack of game time.
Cancelo, who signed from Juventus for £60m in the summer, has often been second fiddle to Kyle Walker at right back this season, and Mourinho has spoken to the Portuguese 25-year-old about a move.
Inter Milan sporting director Piero Ausilio is due in London on Wednesday afternoon to secure a deal for Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen.
Spurs moved to sign the 21-year-old ahead of West Ham after he fell out of favour at Benfica. West Ham had been hopeful of landing Fernandes until late last week but he was then offered to Spurs.
