ristian Romero is set to miss the rest of the season in a knock at Tottenham ahead of Sunday’s game against Burnley.
A kick to the hip from the defender late in the draw with Liverpool ruled him out of the win over Arsenal and Antonio Conte confirmed it didn’t look good for the final weeks of the campaign.
“The situation is the same as before the game against Arsenal – Cuti is trying in his mind to recover for the last game against Norwich but honestly we don’t know. [if he will be available]“Conte said on Friday.
“Of course for the game against Burnley he is not available, but I was very happy with the performance of Davinson Sanchez [against Arsenal].
“We have confidence in him, we have confidence in the team, now we have good confidence and good conviction and we have to put that on the pitch on Sunday with our fans.”
Japhet Tanganga, Matt Doherty, Oliver Skipp and Sergio Reguilon had previously been ruled out of the match due to injuries.
After confidently beating neighbors Arsenal to maintain their hopes of a top-four finish, Tottenham could face Burnley with an unchanged starting line-up.
Predicts Tottenham XI: Loris; Sanchez, Dier, Davies; Royal, Bentancur, Hojbjerg, Sessegnon; Kulusevski, Kane, Son.
