The Tottenham players have been on the training pitch at Hotspur Way this morning ahead of the Premier League opener against Southampton on Saturday.

Sky Sports cameras were present at the club’s training base to capture a portion of the session of the players being put through their paces by Antonio Conte’s backroom staff.

Sky reporter Michael Bridge, who was in attendance commented that one player who was not seen training with the rest of the group was Yves Bissouma.

The summer arrival from Brighton and Hove Albion sustained a hamstring issue during Saturday’s 1-0 pre-season friendly defeat against AS Roma and was seen wearing an ice pack on the back of his leg in Israel (Football.London).

Among those who did participate in the session were fellow summer signings Djed Spence, Ivan Perisic and Clement Lenglet and Richarlison.

If Bissouma is not able to participate in a session 48 hours out from the first match of the season, the signs are certainly not good for his involvement.

More is likely to be revealed on the condition of the midfielder when Antonio Conte holds a press conference at 2pm this afternoon.
