Kunti Koi on Kulusevsky’s injury before the NLD

The news broke this morning that Tottenham HotspurDejan Kulusevsky is a suspect player in Saturday’s north London derby against Arsenal after sustaining an injury while on international duty with Sweden. However, Tottenham coach Antonio Conte has not commented directly on that In his press conference before the derby. Conte kept it shy in front of the press, claiming he didn’t want to give Arsenal an “advantage”.

“We have to wait until tomorrow to check on some players because they are coming back from the national team with some physical problems. Tomorrow the last training session will be very important to understand the players we can count on. At this moment we have to wait.

“Honestly I don’t want to talk about the injury because I don’t want to give Arsenal an advantage, right? But surely we have to have some problems, some physical problems and we also have to know that we are just starting to play the first game of a tour that we have to play 13 days in. 43 days. Definitely we have to try to come up with the best solution and try not to take too much risk because if we take too much risk and lose players for the rest of the games, it will be a disaster. I play every three days, I need to rely on the whole team and try with the players also to make the best decision.”

There are widespread reports that Dicky has a hamstring injury and that he may be out for several weeks. That’s not great for a Spurs side who face a string of grueling matches over the next six weeks, taking a very important player off the board and meaning more and more minutes for Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Richarlison.

But since Kunti’s cards are close to his jacket, it also means that there’s a chance that Deki’s injury isn’t as bad as feared. Having said that, I don’t think it would be realistic to see him on a Saturday morning.

Elsewhere, Conte left the door open for a return to the 3-5-2 method that was so effective in Spurs’ 6-2 victory over Leicester City. Conte has claimed that he is open to playing with three midfielders, especially as he will need to rotate frequently when matches come in frequently.

“Definitely it could be a good option because we have good midfielders also to play in three. Bosuma when he came against Leicester, he played really well and was really good in merging with Pierre. [Emile-Hojbjerg] and Rodrigo Bentancourt. That could be an option not just for tomorrow but for the future if we need to rest the players, especially when you have that kind of situation like when Kulusevsky got that injury. It could be an option.”

Finally, Conte addressed the still-jittery Spurs fans from the Italian media who linked him with a fantastic return to the club. Juventus As soon as this summer. Conte, who has taken a very consistent tone regarding his future at Spurs, has been as clear as ever – he is happy at Spurs, and sees no reason to leave at this time.

“It’s unbelievable that in this period and I think this is disrespectful to the Juventus coach and disrespectful to me [when] Working with Spurs. We have just started the season. I have talked several times about this and have always told you that I am happy and enjoying my time with Tottenham. Then we have the whole season to find the best solution for the club and me.

“And for sure, I’m enjoying my time working with Tottenham, working with Tottenham, with these players. I have a great relationship with the owner and Paratici. I don’t see a problem in the future. Now it’s important to focus. We signed a contract because both parties agree to sign this contract. I don’t see Trouble at the moment. And I don’t want in the future to hear someone talk about this because he has no respect for the other coach and me.”

The North London Derby kicks off early on Saturday, at 7:30AM ET / 12:30PM GMT in the UAE.
