The Evening Standard have revealed that Oliver Skipp is not expected to be in contention for Tottenham’s trip to Turf Moor on Wednesday.
Skipp has not featured for Tottenham since their 2-0 loss to Chelsea on January 23 due to a groin injury.
Antonio Conte revealed two weeks ago that the 21-year-old is an important player for the side and he is pushing the medical staff to have the midfielder back in action as soon as possible (Daily Mail).
However, it emerged ahead of Tottenham’s clash against Manchester City last week that the England Under-21 international’s recovery had been complicated by an infection (Football.London).
This has now been backed up by The Evening Standard, who claim that Spurs are taking a cautious approach due to Skipp’s infection.
It is explained that the midfielder is not back in training as the club want to ensure that the infection is completely out of his system before he returns to the field.

It sounds like Tottenham are just being cautious with Skipp and that we should see him back in action sooner rather than later. I am excited to see the kind of partnership that the 21-year-old could forge with Bentancur when he is back available.
