Davinson Sanchez and Emerson Royal are set to undergo a brief stint in quarantine when they return to the UK from international duty, according to the Evening Standard. 

Following on from the logistical nightmare during the first international break, Spurs and a host of Premier League clubs have had to deal with yet more issues surrounding their South American stars in the second pause. 

Argentina duo Giovani Lo Celso and Cristian Romero played during their country’s 1-0 over Peru in the early hours of Friday morning, while full-back Emerson played in Brazil’s 4-1 thrashing of Uruguay and Sanchez was an unused substitute for Colombia’s stalemate with Chile. 

The Evening Standard report that all four players will be available for Spurs ahead of their Premier League fixture against Newcastle United on Sunday, after the club organised a private jet to bring them directly back to North London. 

They do, however, have to undergo varying levels of quarantine measures upon their return to the UK. 

Sanchez, alongside Emerson, will have to quarantine for a 10 day period at the club’s Enfield training base, but will be free to train and play during that stint. 

Both Lo Celso and Romero will not have to undergo any time in quarantine, after Argentina was recently removed from the government’s red list of countries. 

Spurs Web Opinion 

Spurs have managed to navigate their way out of yet another logistical nightmare over the international break, but there is no doubt that it has come with headaches again. We will have to hope that the next pause in November is a little less stressful than the last two.
