Gareth Bale’s second stop-out leg at Tottenham has been hit by a new injury problem and the Welshman is expected to be out for at least two weeks due to a calf injury.

Bale suffered from the problem in last week’s League Cup quarter-final victory at Stoke, scoring his third goal in 11 appearances since rejoining Spurs on loan from Real Madrid.

However, most of them have made it to the Europa League with their impact in the Premier League limited to a single start.

Bale suffered a series of calf injuries during his stay in Madrid and, three months after returning to London, he has still not fully recovered for the match.

“I wouldn’t say it’s serious, but I would say a few weeks,” Mourinho said of Bale’s prospects of returning for the next games against Fulham and Leeds this week.

“I don’t expect him to be fit and I also have my doubts that Lucas (Moura) and (Carlos) Vinicius can be fit for Fulham.”

The lack of attacking options will increase Mourinho’s confidence in Harry Kane and Son Heung-min during the demanding holiday period.

However, after a four game winless streak in the league, Mourinho always planned to name a strong team against Fulham, who are unbeaten in four, to increase their chances of survival.

“They are playing differently, they forgot some of the principles that they believed in,” added Mourinho.

“They have new principles of the game, they are getting very positive results and it will be difficult.”
