Why Dejan Kulusevski was dropped for Tottenham’s clash with Burnley

Why Dejan Kulusevski was dropped for Tottenham’s clash with Burnley

Tottenham midfielder Dejan Kulusevski has been forced to drop to the bench for Tottenham’s clash with Burnley as a result of a stomach bug, according to reports.

The Swede has been in brilliant form since he arrived in north London in January from Juventus, on an initial loan deal that will certainly be made permanent this summer.

So far, he has contributed 3 goals and 8 assists in 16 Premier League outings, which is a very solid return for a player in his first taste of Premier League football. However, he has had to be replaced in the starting XI by Lucas Moura for their home tie against Burnley as a result of a virus picked up in the aftermath of their 3-0 win over Arsenal.

Reportedly, he is not alone from suffering, although others who are also affected remain unknown.

Spurs need 6 points

The win over Arsenal in the north London derby has handed Tottenham an outside chance of top 4, but they remain a point behind their north London rivals with two games left to play.

They must beat a stubborn Burnley, who themselves are in dire need of points to escape the relegation battle they have found themselves embroiled in, before playing already relegated Norwich on the final day of the season.

And Antonio Conte and co. must also rely on their bitter rivals dropping points, with a tricky trip to St James’ Park against a resurgent Newcastle to come for Mikel Arteta’s side before they end the season at Everton, who may still need points to survive depending on other results.

It could yet go down to the final day.
