Nuno Espirito Santo has confirmed we will still be without Steven Bergwijn, Lucas Moura and Ryan Sessegnon for Wednesday’s Carabao Cup tie at Wolves (7.45pm UK).

Steven and Lucas missed the weekend’s defeat to Chelsea after sustaining injuries against Stade Rennais in the Europa Conference League last week, while Ryan hasn’t featured since incurring a problem on duty for England Under-21s during the recent international break.

“Unfortunately Stevie, Lucas and Sessegnon are not with us – they are recovering, they are getting better but they cannot join us for this match,” Nuno told Spurs TV, adding in his press conference: “We still have players out and some players with some issues from the previous game that we are trying to manage, but nothing has changed much.”

Japhet Tanganga is eligible once again after serving a one-match ban against Chelsea following his red card against Crystal Palace earlier this month.

Asked if he intends to rotate his starting XI at Molineux, Nuno told Spurs TV: “Due to the circumstances that we have, we have to properly manage our squad and properly manage the players individually. I cannot tell you much as you will understand, but there will be changes, but we are always looking for the right team for how we want to compete and we want to go strong, so we will make the decision this afternoon (Tuesday).”

In his press conference, Nuno elaborated on Steven’s injury after he was pictured on social media wearing a protective boot: “He has an injury on his foot, a sprain, he twisted his ankle and it’s very painful,” he said. “The decision was to protect his foot and at the same time keep doing upper body workouts to try to stay as fit as possible. The injury needed to settle down and prevent him from feeling pain.

“With all the injuries, there is a process. We hope the players improve. We don’t enjoy it, it’s painful to see them out but at the same time we are hopeful that they recover sooner rather than later and can join the group.”
