Tottenham Hotspur will probably be seeking to get again to profitable methods after they make the journey to Germany to face Eintracht Frankfurt within the Champions League this night.

Antonio Conte and his facet suffered a gut-wrenching defeat by the hands of arch-rivals Arsenal on Saturday because the Gunners, who lead the Premier League standings, regarded a world other than Spurs within the north London derby, significantly within the second half.

Their distress was compounded when Emerson Royal was despatched off for a silly problem on Gabriel Martinelli and while there was no intentional malice, any studs-up deal with goes to go away the referee with no alternative however to dish out a purple card.

After all, that three-game suspension will solely depend in home competitions, that means the Brazil worldwide is on the market for tonight’s conflict however it might be simply as ludicrous for Conte to belief him going ahead.

The Italian head coach was requested about the precise wing-back state of affairs throughout his pre-game press convention and poured a heap of doubt on Matt Doherty’s potential involvement and had a alternative of phrases about Djed Spence, who should be beginning right here tonight (as relayed by the Metro).

“I attempt to do the most effective for the crew. In the event that they belief me, then they belief me, however the selections are mine. If I didn’t determine to choose one participant it’s possibly as a result of he’s not prepared,” he stated of the £20m summer season signing, earlier than including: “We’re speaking a couple of younger participant with an excellent prospect, however I repeat I attempt to decide the most effective crew.”

After which on the skilled Irishman, he stated: “Additionally Doherty final season performed each recreation. Now I’m not seeing him in the precise option to begin the sport. I’m not silly, I don’t wish to lose. I attempt to put the most effective crew, to choose the most effective crew.”

Let’s not write off Spence as not being prepared, although. It may very well be clever for the 53-year-old to do a U-turn on the England U21 worldwide as it might seem as if he’s a perfect match for his system.

As soon as described as a “Rolls-Royce” kind of participant by Gunners legend Martin Keown for his show towards them within the FA Cup final season, the 22-year-old dynamo can impression a recreation at both finish of the pitch, having averaged 1.8 dribbles, 1.6 interceptions, 1.5 tackles and one key move per recreation for Nottingham Forest throughout their promotion-winning run within the Championship in 2021/22.

The wing-backs are arguably a very powerful function in Conte’s system, so you may neglect about stars like Heung-min Son and Harry Kane for a second, as a result of if the creativity and drive isn’t coming from Spurs’ broad choices, then the pair will wrestle immensely.

A younger and creating Spence is definitely a much better and extra dependable possibility than the inconsistent and calamitous Emerson at proper wing-back, and as such, the Tottenham boss should do the precise factor and unleash him on the Waldstadion this night – it may show to be an absolute stroke of genius come full-time.
