Team news: Hardly-seen ‘£30m’ Spurs star should start v Mura as ‘Conte left impressed’


Ryan Sessegnon may have played his way into the Tottenham starting XI v Mura after impressing against Leeds on Sunday.

That is according to Spurs insider John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhite Rose social media channels.

Sessegnon, 21, made his first Premier League appearance of the season as a second-half sub against Leeds.

The defender joined Tottenham in 2019 but has never been a regular starter at the club.

He was afforded 11 minutes against Leeds in a move that surprised Wenham.

He now hopes the defender is given a chance to impress in the Europa Conference League on Thursday night.

“I was quite surprised by that to be totally honest with you,” Wenham told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“I actually thought Steven Bergwijn might have come on in that position.

“Sessegnon is another player who has worked with Conte over the last two weeks.

“He’s had the chance to drill some things home to the young defender and clearly he’s left Conte impressed.

“I’ve had my reservations about Sessegnon and I have not been afraid to say that.

“Anyone who we spend £30million on, I want to see them given opportunities.

“I was pleased to see him involved and hope he has done enough to earn a start against Mura on Thursday.”

Sessegnon was handed starts in the qualifying rounds of the Europa Conference League earlier this season.

He started in both games against Pacos de Ferreira as Spurs lost away but won at home.
