Here you will find all the news from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the past 24 hours.
Lo Celso Boost
Good news for Tottenham is that midfielder Giovani Lo Celso appears to be getting closer to fitness.
The midfielder has not played for Spurs since his hamstring injury against Leicester City before Christmas and Mourinho said ahead of the Fulham game that his player would be “a few weeks” away from his return.
Tottenham have confirmed on their official website that the Argentine is definitely out of the game in Liverpool, but the player uploaded a quick picture to his Instagram stories on Wednesday afternoon.
He was sitting in the locker room wearing a brand new pair of adidas football boots. The fact that he was wearing his boots suggests that he has increased his fitness before a possible return.
Lo Celso was not featured in the training photos posted by the club, but he may only be training outside of the team at the moment if he’s back on grass now.

Mourinho and Klopp do not agree
Jose Mourinho disagreed with the decision to change the offside laws in the Premier League mid-season.
Following Bernardo Silva’s controversial goal in Manchester City’s 2-0 win over Aston Villa, top division officials received updated instructions.
Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp has spoken out in favor of the change and questioned why it was not implemented earlier.
Before the clash with Spurs on Thursday night, he said: “Aston Villa will be very pleased [the offside law tweak]. My first thought was, how can we not think about it beforehand? Lovren versus Spurs, scored Kane (sic). Not the first time it has happened.
“After all, I would say we changed that rule. All footballers agreed that it had to be resolved. I’m really glad they changed it.”
However, Mourinho disagrees, although although he admits that changing the rules is correct, he thinks it’s unfair to tweak things in the middle of a season.
“I’m not happy with. I believe that is right now and not before, but I don’t think it’s fair for you to change the rule in the season,” he said.

New fourth kit released
Tottenham Hotspur fans now have a fourth Nike shirt to choose from.
Similar to the third kit, this fourth kit design looks for the retro look, with the racket crest – the rooster on top of the ball – and the Nike Swoosh appearing in the center of the chest rather than the sides.
As you can see in the image above, they don’t have the logo of Tottenham’s kit sponsor AIA on the shirt, but the Air Max image in the center, which is inspired by the Air Max 95 logo.
Spurs signed a major renewed kit sponsorship deal with AIA Group Limited in 2019, which lasted until the end of the 2026-27 season and was valued at £ 320 million.
Tottenham signed a 15-year deal with Nike in 2018, which is said to be worth £ 30 million a year. The latest kits sparked a lot of discussion among fans, with different views on their very high-contrast appearance.
