Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte provides team news ahead of the Brentford clash

Speaking in his pre-match press conference ahead of his side’s game against Brentford, as quoted by the club’s official website, Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte has provided some team news and claimed there are no further issues with the squad.

The Italian will be leading his side against Brentford tomorrow in an attempt to bounce back from their 1-0 loss to Brighton & Hove Albion at home, which threatened to derail their hopes of securing a top-four spot in the Premier League table.

Conte said that there was “no news, which is good news” when quizzed about any further injuries to the squad since the game against the Seagulls, which means that Spurs will be raring to go against the Bees tomorrow.

The Lilywhites sit in fourth place at the moment, on course to secure a UCL spot next season. However, they face heavy competition from Arsenal, Manchester United, and West Ham United for a place in the top four, which makes it almost necessary for them to beat Brentford.

“We have these three players out”

Ahead of the trip to Brentford’s new Community Stadium, Tottenham will be without long-term injury-afflicted stars Matt Doherty, Japhet Tanganga, and Oliver Skipp. While the two defenders have been ruled out for the season with knee injuries, Skipp is nursing a groin injury and remains sidelined.

Conte said that apart from these three players, there were no further injury updates to be given on the squad, which is good news for him ahead of the club’s first visit to the away ground.

“We have these three players out, and no further news, which is good news.”

With only six games remaining in the Premier League and no trophies to aim for, the former Juventus manager’s focus will be solely on guiding his team to a Champions League qualification spot.

The journey will not be easy given we have fixtures still to play against Liverpool and Arsenal, and ahead of these tough fixtures, Thomas Frank’s men will be looked at as relatively easier opponents at best.

More Tottenham Hotspur News

That said, the Bees are coming off a winning run themselves, beating sides like West Ham and Chelsea in recent weeks, so they cannot be taken lightly. Spurs will also come up against former player Christian Eriksen tomorrow, who has been lively for Brentford.

Luckily for Conte, he will have nearly a full squad at his disposal to plot a victory against Eriksen and Co. tomorrow as we continue our battle to hold on to our fourth spot in the points table.
