Yves Bissouma is struggling for regular game time at Tottenham Hotspur as a result of ‘tactical indiscipline’, according to Football Insider.

The 26-year-old joined Tottenham back in June from Brighton for initial £25million with the potential of a further £10m in add-ons (Sky Sports).

Bissouma had impressed during his time on the south coast under Graham Potter and was particularly impressive during the Seagulls’ late 1-0 victory over Spurs towards the end of last season in which he helped to nullify the threat of Harry Kane.

The report claims that Spurs boss Antonio Conte will continue to overlook the Mali international from his starting eleven until he is able to meet the needs of his tactical demands.

Bissouma has started just one Premier League game for Spurs this season in the 1-1 draw at West Ham at the back end of August with Conte admitting after the match that the 26-year-old is behind the likes of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur (transfermarkt).

The midfielder was an unused substitute in Tuesday’s 0-0 Champions League stalemate against Eintract Frankfurt.

Bissouma was unlucky to have contracted Covid during the club’s pre-season tour of South Korea and picked up an injury before the first game of the season.

He is an astute player who can bring something different to the Spurs midfield and simply needs time to adapt, however, he does need to start getting some match action even if it comes in the form of a late cameo.
