Jose Mourinho Reveals Hugo Lloris & Ben Davies Nearing Tottenham Return

​Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Hugo Lloris and Ben Davies are due to return for Tottenham by the end of the month.

Spurs have been without their first-choice goalkeeper and club captain since early October, when the Frenchman landed awkwardly trying to catch a cross against Brighton and required surgery after dislocating his elbow.

Mourinho has been unable to call on the 33-year-old since he took the reins in north London, with Paulo Gazzaniga filling in for the World Cup winner throughout the Portuguese's 12 matches at the helm.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, as quoted by ​Alasdair Gold of Football.London, he revealed the injury boost ahead of Saturday's crunch home visit of Liverpool in the ​Premier League.

"Good news is that before the end of the month we'll have two new players, Lloris and Davies," he said. "Lloris never played for me, Ben played one and very, very well in a system we were trying to develop which was only possible to play with him because he can play inside."

These updates come after ​Spurs were handed a bitter blow following the news of Harry Kane's own injury concerns. 

He was forced off during the defeat to Southampton, with scans revealing he would require surgery to repair a ruptured tendon in his left hamstring. He is expected to be ​sidelined until April, joining Moussa Sissoko and Tanguy Ndombele in the treatment room.

Alongside Lloris, the return of Davies from an ankle injury will be a positive to Mourinho, who has been forced to play Jan Vertonghen at left-back on a few occasions this season with little benefit. In just 12 games in charge, Spurs have conceded no less than 19 goals, resulting in six wins and two draws in all competitions.
