A host of Tottenham players have departed for the third international break of the season, ahead of the infamous domestic fixture rush in the winter.
Spurs head into the break ninth in the Premier League after enduring a goalless draw with Everton last time out, which sees them six points off of the Champions League places.
It is a tough job for new Spurs boss Antonio Conte who has entered his second week at the helm and is already shaking up the side’s set-up to fit his preferred system.
But, it is expected that the Italian will use the pause as a ‘mini pre-season’ for the players not called up to their respective national sides, and will work them on both the physical and tactical parts of the game.
Here is a roundup of the 14 Spurs first-team players currently away on duty for November’s international break.
