According to The Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur face the prospect of having just 13 outfield players available for their trip to the King Power Stadium on Thursday.

Tottenham’s Europa Conference League clash against Rennes and their Premier League clash against Brighton were called off last week due to an outbreak of COVID-19 at the club.

It has since been reported that there was one additional positive case among the first-team squad on Monday. Despite this, Antonio Conte allegedly put some members of his squad through their paces at Hotspur Way.

According to sources, as things stand, Spurs expect their clash against Leicester to go ahead. The North London club are said to be administering daily COVID tests in the hope of getting as many first-team players as possible back to training this week.

However, if the Telegraph are to be believed, Conte might only have 13 players, including two goalkeepers, to choose from for Thursday’s match.

If Conte only has 13 players to choose from, then I do not expect the game against Leicester to go ahead.

The Italian would not have youngsters to call upon given that there has been an outbreak among the Under-23s.

The club will be hoping that more first-team players will become available over the next few days after registering for negative tests.
