Matt Doherty

The former Wolves defender has missed the past two matches due to injury.

The 29-year-old was not involved in Tottenham’s last league squad, the 3-1 victory over Sheffield United, and was not involved at Wycombe on Monday night.

It’s unclear at this stage how long he will be out for.

Dele Alli

Alli has struggled to force his way into Mourinho’s starting team this season for a variety of reasons.

His last game was away at Marine in the FA Cup third round and he hasn’t featured since due to a tendon injury.

Giovani Lo Celso

Lo Celso picked up a hamstring injury on December 20 during Spurs’ last defeat, a 2-0 loss at the hands of Leicester City.

Mourinho has confirmed that the 24-year-old midfielder remains sidelined and will do so for the foreseeable future.

He said prior to the Wycombe game: “The only one I can say completely out is Gio.” Mourinho added that the Argentinian will be out “for a few more weeks.”

Serge Aurier

Mourinho’s first-choice right-back Serge Aurier was said to be “not really well” by the boss ahead of the FA Cup match on Monday.

However, although he was fit enough to take his place on the bench, he wasn’t involved on the pitch.

The Ivory Coast international should be back in contention for the Liverpool game, though.
