Antonio Conte has provided a team news update to journalists who have attended Tottenham Hotspur’s pre-Southampton press conference from Hotspur Way this afternoon.

Tottenham make the trip to St Mary’s on Saturday afternoon looking to keep themselves firmly in contention for a top four finish once again this season, while the Saints are rooted to the bottom of the table.

The north Londoners are once again without club captain Hugo Lloris and Ryan Sessegnon, while the midfield pair of Rodrigo Bentancur and Yves Bissouma have already been ruled out for the remainder of the campaign.

Such is the protocol, the media are informed of the availability of the Spurs squad ahead of the clash against Ruben Selles’ side.

He told Football.London: “No news. No new injuries. You know Sessegnon, Bentancur, Lloris, Bissouma injured. Another training session still, fingers crossed nothing more.”

SpursWeb Opinion

Tottenham are not back in action until April 1st following Saturday’s match as a result of the upcoming international fixtures.  It will be hugely important that they head into the international break with another three points in the bag.

Anything less than the mood among the fanbase could be tested further after many made their feelings clear following the exits in the FA Cup and Champions League.
