Team news

Tottenham Boss Nuno Espirito Santo has confirmed that Heung-min Son and Eric Dier did not travel to France for the Europa League game with Rennes.

Son injured his calf on international duty and Dier suffered a dead leg in the 3-0 defeat at Crystal Palace on Saturday. Neither traveled on Wednesday, with Ryan Sessegnon, but Steven Bergwijn did following a recent ankle injury.

Tottenham will again be deprived of their South American trio Giovanni Lo Celso, Cristian Romero and Davinson Sanchez, who have traveled to their country without their club’s permission, and will be disciplined on their return.

Ahead of the world’s first zero-carbon game between Tottenham and Chelsea on September 19, Spurs’ Eric Dier explains some of the sustainability measures the club have taken.

Lo Celso, Romero and Sanchez have spent the last 10 days in Croatia, training on their own to avoid having to isolate themselves in a government hotel in England.

Reindeer striker Martin Terrier (thigh) is not expected to be available, with Jeremy Doku also missing (hamstrings). Alfred Gomis (40s), Birger Meling (adductor) and Lovro Majer (hip) should also be absent.
