Antonio Conte worried about knee injury to Tottenham Hotspur’s Richarlison in Eintracht Frankfurt win

Richarlison possibly suffering a knee injury in Tottenham Hotspur’s win against Eintracht Frankfurt was perhaps the only major negative for manager Antonio Conte from a good night out for Spurs.

The Lilywhites went into this game knowing that a win was important if they wanted to have qualification in their hands going into the last two matchdays. Richarlison started with Harry Kane and Son Heung-min in a front three, who were the heroes of the game.

Kane scored a penalty and assisted one of Son’s two goals. Speaking after the match to BT Sport (h/t BBC), the former Inter Milan manager praised Richy, but said he was worried about a possible knee issue.

“Richarlison played a good game. He had a problem in his knee. I hope it’s nothing serious for Saturday’s game with Everton.”

Dejan Kulusevski was expectedly dropped from the team today despite returning to training. Conte expects him to be fit for the Premier League match against Everton this weekend at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

“We should have Kulusevski for that game. He’s an important option for us. He’s vital.”

The win today was vital. We trailed by a goal from Daichi Kamada in the 14th minute but did well to fight back and lead 3-1. Tuta’s red card just before the hour mark should have made things easier for us – as it did in our 2-0 win against Olympique de Marseille earlier this season.

However, we conceded a late goal via a Faride Alidou in the 87th minute. The score should have been 4-2 if not for Kane blasting his penalty over the bar in the dying embers of the game.

Richarlison, meanwhile, was subbed off in the 67th minute for Oliver Skipp. It remains to be seen if it had something to do with a potential injury issue.

It would be a blow if we are without him against his former club this weekend, with an even tougher game against Manchester United after that on October 19.
