Will Dejan Kulusevski play against Arsenal in north London derby?


Tottenham are boosted by the news that winger Dejan Kulusevski looks likely to be fit in time to play in Sunday’s north London derby against Arsenal.

Having spent the whole of October sidelined, Kulusevski has only played once since Premier League football returned following the World Cup break.

The Swede has missed games against Aston Villa, Crystal Palace and Portsmouth in recent weeks, but manager Antonio Conte is expecting to have him available.

“For sure the situation is going to improve, especially for [Kulusevski],” Conte explained.

“He had a training session in the last few days with us. I think he is going to be ready to play. About [Richarlison] and Rodrigo [Bentancur], also both situations are improving.

“I think in this moment Deki is much more ready to play and especially don’t take risk because for us it is very important to have patience, especially because these are important players for a long period. Now to accelerate the process to risk to recovery and to lose them for a long period again, is not good, is not positive.

“For this reason, we’ll see. We have another training session tomorrow to monitor the situation well about Rodrigo and Richy.”
