Everton vs Tottenham: Mourinho names players to miss clash, gives update on Dele Alli, Aurier
Tottenham Hotspur manager, Jose Mourinho, has confirmed that Giovani Lo Celso and Sergio Reguilon will not feature for Spurs when they face Everton in the FA Cup fifth-round tie on Wednesday night due to injury.
Mourinho also said that Dele Alli and Serge Aurier could both feature for Tottenham against Everton at Goodison Park.
Mourinho’s men head to the game after beating West Brom in the Premier League on Sunday.
Speaking ahead at his pre-match press conference on Tuesday, Mourinho said, “Dele trained yesterday (Monday) with the team, and well. He’s had a long time away, a couple of weeks not training with the team and recovering.
“Can he play tomorrow? Well, he is not injured, but I am not sure he can. Can he help us? I believe he can. So, in terms of having Dele on the bench to come on for a few minutes to try to help the team, is that possible? It is something I have to speak with him about, but I believe he can.”
Mourinho added: “Serge left the game (against West Brom) with a little problem. Can he play tomorrow? I do not know, I do not think so, but we’ve a training session later this afternoon.
“He is one to look at. Gio Lo Celso, no chance. Sergio Reguilon, no chance.
