Alasdair Gold reveals why Spurs new signing was left out of the squad for the match against Chelsea


Tottenham journalist Alasdair Gold gives an update on Djed Spence. The right-back has been ruled out of the team’s list for the London derby with Chelsea.

So far none of this summer’s new acquisitions have been included in the starting lineup, although three newcomers to the team – Yves Bissouma, Ivan Perisic and Richarlison – have been given a place on the bench.

Before the Spurs game, reporter Gold tweeted about Spence’s situation. The reason for not including the young Englishman was Antonio Conte’s tactical decisions.

“For those asking about Spence. He’s here and has travelled with the squad but Conte has gone with a more balanced bench rather than having what would essentially be four right-wing back options among the subs alone if Spence was named as well. Gil gives a third attacking option.”
