Cristian Stellini has provided a team news update to journalists who have attended Tottenham Hotspur’s pre-Everton press conference from Hotspur Way this afternoon.
The Italian was holding his first press conference in his new role of acting head coach following the departure of Antonio Conte late on Sunday evening.
Stellini is still able to call upon the services of the majority of Conte’s backroom staff with goalkeeping coach Marco Savorani, set-piece specialist Gianni Vio, and fitness coaches Stefano Bruno and Constantino Coratti will remain in north London, while the 53-year-old’s brother Gianluca also packed his bags.
Such is the protocol, the media are informed of the availability of the Spurs squad ahead of the clash against Sean Dyche’s side.
Spurs are without Rodrigo Bentancur (knee), Yves Bissouma (ankle), Ben Davies (hamstring), Richarlison (muscle injury), Emerson Royal (knee) and Ryan Sessegnon (hamstring) for the trip to Goodison Park.
Stellini has revealed that Perisic is fit and ready to play despite picking up that knock for Croatia, while Hugo Lloris is also available again (Charlie Eccleshare).
Ben Davies and Ryan Sessegnon are said to be recovering well. Richarlison is also on the mend but not yet back in training.
Bentancur, Bissouma, and Emerson remain more long-term absentees.
