Tottenham Hotspur are set to assess the condition of a number of players following their involvement during the recent international break, according to the Evening Standard.
Oliver Skipp suffered a tight groin during the latter stages of England Under-21’s win against Kosovo on Thursday night and is hopeful of being fit to face Crystal Palace in Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off, however, despite Skipp’s optimism, Spurs are said to be unlikely to take any risks with his fitness.
Skipp has started in all three of Tottenham’s opening Premier League fixtures this season, forming an impressive axis with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in midfield.
Heung-min Son will also be assessed by the medical team this afternoon having picked up a calf problem while representing South Korea.
Steven Bergwijn, who was recalled to the Dutch national team after being left out for Euro 2020 was seen with an ice pack on his ankle after featuring against Turkey on Tuesday and could be another player who is checked over at Hotspur Way later today.
Ryan Sessegnon has already been ruled out of the trip to Selhurst Park, having had to withdraw from the England Under-21 setup due to a hamstring issue, with the former Fulham player having experienced hamstring problems in the past (transfermarkt).
The international break has been one to forget to Spurs, especially with Lo Celso, Romero and Sanchez all currently abroad and unavailable this weekend following their decision to go against the club’s wishes and represent Argentina and Colombia.
