The two teams meet on Saturday in a crucial top four test.
"Lucas Moura scored a hat-trick in the Champions League semi-final last year and is an incredible talent on the ball. There are attacking players.
"I am not sure many teams in the Premier League have had our injuries. We had huge ones at the start of the season, big ones now in the season. Major major players for us.
"N'Golo Kante has played 50 per cent of the games when he has been basically a regular starter for the last four years in the Premier League. Ruben, as I say, hasn't kicked a ball yet.
"Harry Kane is a miss, Son is a miss. They have had injuries in the past but they have players who can fill in."
