Stay tuned on VAVEL.com for more reaction from Roy Hodgson's pre-West Ham United press conference.
"James Tomkins is out, an accident in training means he picked up an injury, and apart from that, it's the players who have been injured for a while now."
"Every team needs it's top players. There is no doubt in my mind he is certainly one of those."
On how to stop West Ham
"They do all aspects of the game well. An experienced and well disciplined team. They are of course in a form which has boosted their confidence."
On Frank Lampard
"I'll speak to Frank, because i have that sort of relationship with him. It saddens me by the fact he wasn't given a longer spell in charge."
On Mateta's quality
"Well, he's tall and athletic. We think he is the type of player who will adapt his game to the Premier League."
"It will be a challenge for him after three years at Mainz, but he comes with a good pedigree and a good attitude."
The run of games
"Any time is a good time to move away from the wrong end of the table."
On West Ham
"They have been very good. I have been really impressed since the start of the season."
"They are very, very dangerous side."
On Demarai Gray
"If he's avaliable on a free transfer, I don't think we will be the only club looking to acquire his services."
"He's looking good. We have chased him for a period of time and luckily the club have struck a deal with Mainz."
Hodgson has also confirmed that Mateta will not take part in tomorrow's game against West Ham.
