Toby Alderweireld was substituted 10 minutes to the end of the match, the Belgian is feared to have suffered a significant injury which may keep him sidelined making Mourinho’s defence wanting.
Mourinho may consider using Davinson Sanchez to partner with Eric Dier in the heart of defence whereby Joe Rodon is not eligible to play in the Europa League, Japhet is nursing injury and Matt Doherty tested positive for covid-19 still in the isolation.
Gareth Bale, Lucas Moura and Carlos Vinicius are potentially in line for starting roles, an option Mourinho may use to make changes to keep Harry and son rested.
