Tottenham are being forced to wait a little longer for their return to action following the international break.
Spurs don’t play until Monday night, when they face relegation-threatened Everton, though the extra preparation time should suit them given the recent sacking of Antonio Conte, with Christian Stellini in temporary charge until the end of the season. Tottenham come into this one on the back of just one win in their last five outings across all competitions.
Ahead of the Everton clash, there is some good news in that Ivan Perisic has been passed fit, with Stellini saying in his press conference: “Perisic is fit and well and he trained today. It was only a kick he had with the national team. He trained this morning with us.”
Elsewhere, Richarlison is a doubt, and Emerson Royal is sidelined for the coming weeks. Ben Davies is also out longer term, much like Ryan Sessegnon, and Rodrigo Bentancur is out for the rest of the season. Hugo Lloris is back and fit to play.
Speaking about the club’s injury problems, Stellini added: “We have some injuries and we have to be careful with the decisions and I mentioned before that we prepared some changes in the past and we were working on that and we want to continue working on that, not only in one way but sometimes to change some details in the game.
“Thinking of the opponent we have to face and we want to continue on that, we need all the players ready to play that game and at this particular moment we don’t have many wing-backs ready to play so we have to be aware of that and not make a wrong decision.”
As far as Everton are concerned, Dominic Calvert-Lewin is sidelined, with Sean Dyche saying: “There is nothing too major on the injury front. So far so good. Dominic hasn’t trained with the group but is back on the grass. He is making good progress. There is no timescale.”
Andros Townsend is the only other absentee for the Toffees, out until May.
