Tue 18 January 2022, 14:39|Tottenham Hotspur
Antonio Conte says it’s a case of ‘as we were’ in terms of team news ahead of our Premier League clash at Leicester City on Wednesday evening (7.30pm).
That means Steven Bergwijn is back from a calf injury but Eric Dier and Heung-Min Son both miss out with muscular problems. Meanwhile, Cristian Romero is closing in on fitness after his serious hamstring injury.
Speaking to Spurs TV after training on Tuesday, Antonio told us: “To compare to the last game against Arsenal, nothing has changed, we have the same players available.
“Cristian is improving, and he’s working with us. For sure, we have to try to respect the right time for his recovery. He had a serious injury and now he’s very close to coming back with us and being available for games. For sure, after the international break he’ll be available.
“Bergwijn has recovered from his calf injury and was already in the squad against Arsenal. For Eric, we have to wait a bit, and also have a bit of patience, and not take a risk.”
