Antonio Conte issues Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski injury updates ahead of Everton

Antonio Conte has been speaking about Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski’s injuries ahead of Everton...

Tottenham Hotspur enjoyed a successful night in the Champions League as they moved top of a congested Group D.

Spurs defeated Eintracht Frankfurt 3-2 in what could prove to be a crucial win for the north London side.

However, they were without Dejan Kulusesvki and also saw Richarlison go off with a knee injury.

Ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash with Everton, Antonio Conte has provided updates on the attacking duo.

Conte on Richarlison and Kulusevski injuries

Richarlison came off after 67 minutes on Wednesday having earlier in the game taken a blow to the knee.

After, Conte seemed to suggest that the Brazilian was now a doubt for the weekend’s match.

Meanwhile, Spurs have now been without Kulusevski for the last four fixtures.

The Swede suffered a thigh injury during the previous international break.

But it is now good news regarding the 22-year-old, who is expected back to face Everton.

Speaking to BT Sport about Richarlison, Conte said: “He played a great game and then he had a problem in his knee, I hope it is nothing serious for Saturday’s game against Everton.

“For sure on Saturday we have Kulusevski, probably he is available for the game.

“This is really good news because he is an important option to have on the bench which is vital.”
