Tottenham Hotspur boss confirms young midfielder will miss Leeds United game

Antonio Conte provided an injury update on Ryan Sessegnon ahead of Tottenham Hotspur’s home clash against Leeds United

The 22-year-old has been an important member of the Spurs team this season, making16 appearances across all competitions. 

The midfielder was part of the team in the Carabao Cup defeat at Nottingham Forest but picked up a knock and has been ruled out this weekend.

Conte said (as per “About Sessegnon, today he didn’t train with us. He had a little problem, and he’s not available for tomorrow’s game.

“Richarlison and Kulusevski have another training session before we decide about the starting XI.”

Tottenham are in a disappointing run of form at the moment. They have lost four of their previous seven matches across all competitions. 

Despite their recent struggles, Spurs are still fourth in the Premier League standings with 26 points from 14 matches.

Their latest loss came in the Carabao Cup, where Steve Cooper’s side struck two second-half goals to progress to the round of 16. 

Renan Lodi broke the deadlock in the 50th minute before Jesse Lingard extended the scoreline by nodding home Sam Surridge’s flick. 

Conte introduced Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski off the bench, but the two players failed to make a difference.
