Tottenham manager Antonio Conte will have a plethora of players back available for Sunday’s game against Liverpool after respective spells on the sidelines.
The Lilywhites haven’t played in two weeks after their Europa Conference League clash against Rennes was postponed following a viral outbreak at the north London club, before Premier League matches against Brighton and Leicester also postponed.
However, the likes of Son Heung-min, Emerson Royal, Oliver Skipp and Lucas Moura could all be available after testing positive for the virus. As per Sky Sports, several of the nine players who reported positive tests are expected to be involved for the visit of the Reds this weekend.
Moreover, Spurs could also be able to welcome back Sergio Reguilon after the Spaniard suffered an injury in the win over Norwich at the beginning of December.
On the left-back, Conte said: “Sergio until today trained apart but he’s ready to have the training session with us tomorrow. The player is comfortable to be back in training with us. I hope that tomorrow he’s totally recovered but today Sergio was happy. His feeling was good.”
After two weeks without their team playing following the viral outbreak at N17, Tottenham fans will surely be delighted at the prospect of watching Spurs play once again, especially with many key players set to return to the fold.
Facing title contenders Liverpool will arguably be Antonio Conte’s toughest test yet since taking charge of the north London club, although the Lilywhites had won three league games in a row before seeing the last three fixtures postponed.
However, after having a refreshed squad and a much cleaner bill of health than was the case a few weeks ago, Antonio Conte should certainly be more encouraged regarding his team’s chances of ending Liverpool’s enviable winning run.
