Spurs travelled to Austria without Harry Kane, who was left at home to work on his fitness.
All eyes will be on the Tottenham talisman ahead of Sunday’s North London derby with Arsenal.
And Mourinho remains cautiously optimistic Kane will be fit to take part in the game.
While Spurs have kept a silence around the nature of the injury, Mourinho did say: “I believe [Harry Kane] is going to be fit.
“He’s having treatment but I could be doing some bluff and pretend he’s in trouble. But he’s not and I think he’ll play [against Arsenal].”
