Fernandes and Eriksen on the bench for Spurs at Watford

Inter Milan yet to bid for Spurs midfielder Eriksen, says Mourinho

"They did not discuss that one that should have been a penalty and then they looked at one that was clearly not", Mourinho said.

"I think the result is unfair, I think it would have been more unfair if we lost".

"If they are confident, they are confident because they are ready to make us an offer, which didn't happen yet".

"When I see people talking ... responsible people, it comes as a surprise to me". That's all I can say. I think it's a normal effect of the situation. This is not the last match of Tottenham's history.

Subs: Sanchez, Vorm, Dier, Sessegnon, Eriksen, Skipp, Fernandes.

Spurs have been a little out of sorts of late and the loss of Harry Kane, potentially for the rest of the season, is huge.

Mourinho, whose side avoided defeat after a 70th-minute penalty save from Paulo Gazzaniga, added: "I promised I did not want to speak about the boys that are not playing and I have to try".

"Do we need attackers?" Yes, if possible yes.

Eriksen, a reported target for Inter, started for Spurs in their 2-1 FA Cup third-round replay victory over Middlesbrough on Tuesday but Mourinho opted for an attacking quartet of Giovani Lo Celso, Son Heung-min, Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura at Vicarage Road. But we are doing our work.

Spurs have an option to buy him for £27.2million during this window, a price that will go up to an obligatory £34million in the summer.

"Starting or not he will be involved with the team this weekend", Mourinho said.

"I think Giovanni will stay with us", he said.

"There are some loans that have the opportunity to be in control of the situation like is happening with Gedson". Spurs have not been at their best this season.

Mourinho expects the club captain to be back by the early part of next month. So the normal thing is February.

"Things are going well". "When you get new players in January it usually happens because you need it".

Left-back Ben Davies and midfielder Tanguy Ndombele are also on their way back from injury and should be available shortly.
