Jones ready for Spurs clash, says Mourinho

MANAGER: Manchester United-boss José Mourinho.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says Phil Jones will be ready to face Tottenham saturday.

Jones limped off with an injury in United’s shock 2-1 defeat at newly-promoted Huddersfield Town last week but the Englishman was on the bench for Tuesday’s 2-0 EFL Cup victory over Swansea City.

And Mourinho said after the game that Jones is ready for Spurs.

“It was quite comfortable and no injuries, so a good day for us,” said Mourinho.

“I think Jones will be [back] because, today [Tuesday], he was on the bench and he told me he will be ready in case I need him. So I believe he’ll be even better for Saturday.

“Apart from that, I have no news and no hopes [for any other players].”
