Antonio Conte gives injury update on Tottenham Hotspur duo Eric Dier and Son Heung-Min ahead of Chelsea game

Antonio Conte has provided the latest injury update on Tottenham Hotspur duo Eric Dier and Son Heung-Min ahead of the match against Chelsea in the Premier League. This fixture would be the third clash between these two teams within one month, and Spurs will want to be on the winning side this time around.

Tottenham have been boosted by the return of Eric Dier as his absence was felt in the last couple of games. Son Heung-Min is still out of contention, which would be a blow as he was in fine form before getting sidelined for the month.

Speaking in the pre-match press conference (h/t Football.London), Conte has revealed that Dier has returned to engage in training sessions and is cleared for the league fixture against the Blues. He added that Son’s recovery is going smoothly, but he would only be available after the international break.

“Eric Dier today had a good training session with us and is available. Sonny not yet, we have to wait but he’s recovering very well. We have to wait until after the international break.”

Let’s keep them guessing

What’s intriguing is that the Italian coach also expressed how there are two other injury concerns that they realised following the 3-2 win against Leicester City. He did not give away who the players are to keep the opponents guessing ahead of the match.

“Today is Friday and for sure after the game against Leicester, we are trying to manage a couple of situations with fresh injuries. For sure we have tomorrow to make the right decision about a couple of our players. Honestly, I prefer not to tell you the players, also because I don’t want to give advantage to our opponents.”

It would be interesting to see who the “unknown” are in the build-up to the match. Some may think that the 52-year-old manager is taking it too far but not revealing the information would prevent Thomas Tuchel to adjust his game plan accordingly.

While we lost the two Carabao Cup semi-final ties against the Champions League holders, we cannot dwell on it for too long. We were handed a reality check on the difference between the title heavyweights and us and should use that loss to motivate ourselves to prevent a repeat of the results.

More Tottenham Hotspur News

Beating Tuchel’s team on Sunday would put us five points behind them in the league table while having four games in hand. That would be a great turnaround to our fortunes since Conte took over.

The performance against Leicester has certainly boosted morale within the Spurs squad ahead of facing a Chelsea side struggling to win games We must take advantage of this situation and further safeguard our chances of qualifying for the CL next term.
