Antonio Conte hints at possible season-ending injury for Tottenham ace on eve of Liverpool clash

Antonio Conte is unsure whether Sergio Reguilon will play for Tottenham again this season due to his current groin injury. Getting a regular run in the team in Ryan Sessegnon’s absence last month, the Spaniard then dropped out of the XI against Brentford through injury.

Reguilon was on the bench for the 0-0 draw at Brentford Community Stadium but played no part in the contest, before then missing out altogether last Sunday for the 3-1 win over Leicester City. With just over two weeks until the current campaign comes to an end, Conte has revealed that his player has yet to return to training.

“Sergio Reguilon is not available. He hasn’t had a training session with us,” said the Italian in his pre-match press conference ahead of Liverpool. “Honestly I don’t know, it’s only two weeks until the end of the season and I’m not sure if he’ll be back.”

Set to come up against title contenders Liverpool this weekend, Tottenham are going to have to be at their very best if they are to leave Anfield with points in the bag. Conte, however, has stated that his team have prepared well for the game and that he has told his players “not to be scared of the pressure”.

“We are trying to have a good idea. I hope not the same idea as Liverpool.,” he said. “For sure we know that in this moment Liverpool are in really good form. I have watched the game against Villarreal and it was incredible the calm that the team showed in a difficult situation. They were 2-0 down and the atmosphere was very difficult. They are one of the best teams in the world with Manchester City.

“We’ve prepared for the game very well. We need to be very good without the ball, to be good defensively, but if we want to win, we have to be very good with the ball. I said this to my players. We need to play a good game, not to be scared of the pressure.”
