Antonio Conte gives the latest injury news on Tottenham Hotspur ahead of Arsenal clash

Antonio Conte has provided the latest injury news on Tottenham Hotspur ahead of their match against Arsenal in the Premier League. Tomorrow, the North London derby will be hosted by his side as both teams compete to achieve Champions League qualification for the next season.

Tottenham have some injury concerns to take care of coming into this fixture, just as they did in the 2-2 draw against Liverpool. Sergio Reguilon was the doubt for this game as he was not fully ruled out for this campaign just yet, even though Conte was not confident about his availability. Now it seems that the wing-back may not return this term after all.

Speaking in the pre-match press conference (h/t Tottenham Hotspur official website), the Spurs boss has revealed that the squad remains the same as it was against the Reds recently. He added that Reguilon is out once again while conveying that the defender may not return to action this term.

“The situation is the same as before the last game against Liverpool. Sergio Reguilon is not available, and I don’t think he can recover, we only have 10 days (of the season, after Arsenal) to go. It will be the same players who faced Liverpool.”

Can Spurs pip Arsenal in top-four race?

Reguilon’s unavailability is a blow indeed, as that leaves us with only Ryan Sessegnon in the wing-back area, which is a bit concerning, to say the least. After all, Sessegnon did only return from a hamstring injury in the past few weeks, and we would ideally have wanted to manage his workload.

That will not be possible because of this situation, although the rest period between matches does give us a sigh of relief in that regard. There are not many matches left this season, and we would hope that Sessegnon can get through this campaign without suffering another problem.

We would also be missing the likes of Matt DohertyOliver Skipp and Japhet Tanganga, as they have already been ruled out for the remainder of this term. They would have played a part in our top-four pursuit, but we are forced to do without them for now.

Tottenham are currently four points off their North London rivals, having played the same amount of matches. That does put Mikel Arteta’s side in the driving seat when it comes to achieving CL football for the next season.

After all, even a win tomorrow would not guarantee us a spot in the prestigious competition if they win the remaining matches that follow the NLD. However, what we can do is continue to put pressure on our direct rivals, and a victory in the derby would turn the momentum in our favour.

That being said, things would not be easy as the Gunners are a force to reckon with after all. At the same time, our display against Jurgen Klopp’s side should give us a much-needed boost which could lend us a hand to overcome the challenge tomorrow. Only time will tell whether we will be the victors at the end of the night in the league fixture.

A football enthusiast who is madly in love with the beautiful sport.
