Lo Celso has been absent from the first-team picture since December with a hamstring problem, which has restricted him to just 19 appearances in all competitions for Mourinho’s side this season.
Whilst Reguilon has been ruled out of action since late January with a muscle injury, having last featured for Spurs in their 3-1 win over relegation-threatened Sheffield United.
Who has been a bigger miss for Spurs?
Speaking in a recent interview, via football.london, Mourinho revealed that Reguilon could be set to return to action as early as next week, whilst Lo Celso wasn’t set to feature any time in the near future.
“I don’t know. Not close. I think Reguilon next week against Wolfsberger home match.
“Not Gio. No, no, no. Gio is still a few weeks away and of course we need him because he gives us lots of qualities and options and we’ve missed him for a long time.”
Plenty of Tottenham Hotspur supporters took to social media to react to Mourinho’s injury update on Reguilon and Lo Celso, with the majority being left frustrated.
Take a look at the best of the reaction from Twitter below…
“Gio not even close? That’s not good at all. At this rate, we may not see him again until late March, early April.”
“Lo Celso is really pushing hard to be in our list of worst ever signings. Huge outlay for little return.”
“Gio will never play for us again.”
“Why are all our signings made of weetabix, it’s been a joke for years now.”
“Season over. These two long term injuries have killed our season.”
“Gio made of glass.”
“Lo Celso’s injuries are a nightmare. If this is going to continue long-term, like it has with Lamela, we should just try to offload him this summer.”
“Get rid of Gio. He’s a Lamela 2.0, can’t stay fit.”
“If Reggy isn’t fit for West Ham then that’s a huge blow, cement boots again it is. Just rule Gio out for the season, that’s where it’s heading, the man is made of glass.”
Spurs have lost four of their last five matches in the top-flight, and evidently, they have suffered in the absence of the pair – only Harry Kane and Heung-min Son have delivered more assists than Reguilon, while the pair are the only two to outrank Lo Celso for key passes per game (0.8), via WhoScored.
The quicker the duo are back, the better it will be for Spurs. Mourinho better hope that their absence isn’t felt in today’s London derby.
