Everton vs Tottenham Hotspur: Injury list for both teams ahead of Premier League clash
Tottenham Hotspur will travel to Goodison Park and face Everton in the Premier League on Sunday. Both teams come into this game having lost the previous fixture in the league and will be looking to turn things around.
Tottenham will have a new manager at the helm in the form of Antonio Conte who replaced Nuno Espirito Santo following the loss to Manchester United. The Toffees are for their part in the midst of a three-match losing streak as they lost to Wolverhampton Wanderers, Watford and West Ham United.
Everton boss, Rafael Benitez, got the better of Conte in their last meeting as the Italian’s Chelsea side lost to Rafa’s Newcastle United. Times have however changed and Conte is now coming off the back of leading Inter Milan to the Scudetto.
According to BBC, Spurs will have a couple of injury concerns with Ryan Sessegnon and Bryan Gil expected to miss the game. Sessegnon suffered an injury during the international break in September whereas, Gil is suffering from a thigh injury.
Benitez’s side are having the worst of it as they miss some key players in the squad. Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Andre Gomes, Yerry Mina and Abdoulaye Doucoure are out for the game tomorrow and will be a blow to the hosting team. Not that Tottenham will complain.
However, they will be boosted by the return of Lucas Digne, who has been declared injury-free and will be available for selection. Earlier this week, Fabian Delph made his return to the squad after being out on the sidelines and could once again be in contention for the selection.
