Antonio Conte Named Three Players Out On North London Derby Against Arsenal And Reasons Behind

Tottenham midfielder Dejan Kulusevski ‘could miss Saturday’s north London derby with Arsenal after suffering a hamstring injury while on international duty with Sweden.

Dejan Kulusevski is reportedly questionable for Tottenham’s north London derby against Arsenal this Saturday due to a suspected hamstring injury.

According to The Athletic, the winger played in both of Sweden’s Nations League games during the international break and has returned to his club with the problem.

According to the report, Kulusevski will be evaluated before the Saturday lunchtime kickoff at the Emirates before a decision on his fitness is made.

Antonio Conte may suffer a major setback if he is unable to replace the 22-year-old, who has been one of Tottenham’s best players since joining the club.

Conte is expected to provide an update on the injury during his press conference on Thursday afternoon.

While Kulusevski’s absence from the north London derby will be felt, Conte still has Richarlison to call on for the crucial match at the Emirates.

Richarlison has been in excellent form for both club and country recently, scoring three goals and providing one assist in Brazil’s two wins over Ghana and Tunisia over the international break.


He also scored his first two goals for Spurs, scoring a brace against Marseille earlier this month in the Champions League group stage.
