Burnley v Spurs – team news
Tue 26 October 2021, 15:04|Tottenham Hotspur
Matt Doherty is back in the frame as we prepare to visit Burnley in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night (7.45pm UK).
The right-back has been sidelined for our last three games since picking up a knock on Republic of Ireland duty during the recent international break, but is now back fit and available for selection ahead of our fourth round tie at Turf Moor.
Speaking to us at Hotspur Way today (Tuesday), manager Nuno Espirito Santo confirmed: “He’s back in the group, that’s good news. He’s going to be in the squad, but it’s up to us to decide the right moment to integrate all the players. The only bad news that we have at this moment is Ryan Sessegnon – he’s not able to join us yet.”
Asked whether he expected to use the majority of the matchday squad that went to West Ham in the Premier League on Sunday, the Head Coach said: “Basically yes, but we have players that we need, players that are working hard, maybe with the expectation that they will have more minutes, the expectation that they deserve more minutes, but it’s up to us to manage all these situations individually, at the same time looking at which are the best partnerships for what we want to be as a team.”
