Ryan Mason has provided a team news update to journalists who have attended Tottenham Hotspur’s pre-Leeds United press conference from Hotspur Way this afternoon.

The 31-year-old faces for the final time this season in a pre-match briefing with the curtain set to come down on a turbulent campaign following the conclusion of the match at Elland Road.

Qualification for the Europa Conference League is out of their hands with Spurs having to rely on Brighton to beat Aston Villa, who are currently a point ahead of the north Londoners in seventh place. If Villa draw, Spurs need to win away to Leeds United to secure seventh, while a Villa defeat would leave Ryan Mason’s side needing just a point from the match.

Leeds have plenty to play for and are battling for their Premier League survival and needing to win whilst hoping that Everton lose at home to Bournemouth and Leicester pick up no more than a point at home to West Ham.

Tottenham’s managerial situation looks no clearer after Arne Slot revealed yesterday he is to remain at Feyenoord with Celtic’s Ange Postecoglou now being heavily linked to become Antonio Conte’s successor.

Such is the protocol, the media are informed of the availability of the Spurs squad ahead of the clash against Sam Allardyce’s strugglers.

Mason told the official Spurs Twitter account: “Cristian [Romero], no.  He has got an injury and is out.  Pierre trained yesterday, so we’re hopeful that maybe he can help us at the weekend.”
