United face Spurs this weekend and the Red Devils will be keen to return to winning ways in the Premier League, following last weekend’s shock defeat to Huddersfield.
And ahead of Spurs’ visit to Old Trafford, Mourinho has confirmed defender Phil Jones will be available for the clash.
Jones limped off during the defeat at Huddersfield last weekend when the game was goalless.
The England defender was not expected to travel to the Carabao Cup tie at Swansea on Tuesday night, but in the event he was an unused substitute as Jesse Lingard’s first United brace secured a comfortable 2-0 victory.
And United boss Jose Mourinho provided a positive update on Jones’ fitness after the holders had booked their place in the quarter-finals.
“There were no injuries either, so it is a good day,” Mourinho told Sky Sports before choosing not to attend the customary post-match press conference.
“I believe that Phil Jones will be fit for Saturday against Tottenham, but apart from that I have no news.”
Jones’ availability against Spurs will come as a huge boost for second-placed United, who are only above Mauricio Pochettino’s side on goal difference.
