The Evening Standard have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur are now putting their first-team squad through daily COVID tests in order to have as many players back in training as possible.

Spurs shut down the first-team section of Hotspur Way last week after an outbreak of the virus among the squad.

It was reported that some members of the first-team squad returned to training on Monday, including two of the players who had returned positive tests last week.

According to Football.London, as things stand, Tottenham expect their clash against Leicester on Thursday to go ahead.

The Evening Standard have now revealed that Conte put the players who are back in training through a gruelling double session on Monday. The Italian is said to be hopeful that he can field a team for the clash at the King Power on Thursday.

Finally, it is explained that with the club now testing their players every day, they are hopeful that most of their senior players will be able to return from isolation this week.

Some are expected to be back for Thursday’s game while others are expected to be available for the clash against Liverpool on Sunday.

Going by the various reports over the last few days, it does sound like Spurs are determined to ensure they can field a team for Thursday’s fixture.

That is certainly understandable as Conte’s men cannot afford to have another match postponed following the Burnley and the Brighton games.
