There were fears that Lo Celso could miss Tottenham’s game against Aston Villa, after he wasn’t spotted in training on Wednesday.
The Argentine had been nursing a knock, but it seems that he has shaken off his injury problem now.
And Mourinho had a very positive fitness update for Tottenham fans at his latest press conference.
“No more limitation for [Steven] Bergwijn, Ben [Davies] is back. Giovani [Lo Celso] is ready to play,” Mourinho said.
“[Erik] Lamela we have to assess but if not for Sunday then Wednesday. Juan [Foyth] out still a little bit and [Moussa] Sissoko and Harry [Kane] apart from that we’re getting better.”
Lo Celso could well come back into Tottenham’s starting line-up on Sunday, now he is back to full fitness.
The summer signing was enjoying his longest run of starts before injury struck, and he had put in some impressive displays.
Lo Celso had formed a good partnership with Harry Winks in the centre of Tottenham’s midfield, with the pair both looking comfortable in possession.
If Spurs are able to win against Villa this weekend they could cut the gap to the top four down to just one point, if other results go in their favour.
