[Teams] Watford vs Tottenham: Confirmed line-ups from Vicarage Road

Tottenham Hotspur have not yet received a bid for Christian Eriksen and the creator will present at Saturday's Premier League match at Watford despite not being "fully focused", manager Jose Mourinho said on Friday.

Reports suggested the Denmark global, who is in the last six months of his contract, was close to a move to the Serie A side, with his agent in Milan to broker a deal during the current transfer window.

Mourinho went on to further explain Rose's absence, adding: "We knew it was going to be physical, at the same time we knew that (Ismaila) Sarr is a runner..."

"So when I see people speaking, especially people with responsibilities speaking about it, I am a little bit surprised". It's a normal effect of the situation.

They have however since left the drop zone and are now on a run of six consecutive games in all competitions without defeat.

The club has been affiliated with AC Milan's Krzysztof Piatek among others. "Do we need a striker?"

"We all know, we all want the best for the team, the best for the club. I am pleased with how we played football today".

DHS seeks Pentagon funds for 270 miles of border wall
Last year Trump was forced to settle for just $1.4 billion in wall funding following the longest government shutdown in history. All together, the officials said, they expect to complete 400 to 500 miles of border construction by the end of this year.


New signing Gedson Fernandes could also play at Vicarage Road following his loan move from Benfica this week and Mourinho is hopeful of doing more business before the end of the month.

"I imagine yes, I think it is something that comes from the summer", Mourinho said when asked whether a purchase could happen. And we need [him] because we lost important players for a long time so we need his contribution.

The France keeper has not played for Mourinho, who replaced Mauricio Pochettino in November, but appears to be edging closer to his first appearance under the Portuguese's stewardship.

"But in this game and the game against Middlesbrough - okay you can say it is a Championship team but at this moment there is no big difference between the Premier League and Championship - I think we showed good things".

Mourinho's side, who have no like-for-like replacement for Kane, have not scored in the league since their prolific frontman suffered a hamstring injury on New Year's Day.

"I told you a month ago, I said February". So, the normal thing is February.
