Matt Doherty, Ryan Sessegnon: Tottenham injury news ahead of Carabao Cup clash with Burnley



After another defeat in a London derby on Sunday, Nuno Espirito Santo will be desperate to bounce back to winning ways when Tottenham travel to Burnley tonight.

The 1-0 loss at the hands of West Ham meant that Spurs have lost all four derbies in the capital so far this season, with losses to Chelsea, Arsenal and Crystal Palace adding to the misery.

Once again, Santo’s side looked toothless in attack, now failing to score in their last two matches, and even failing to muster a shot on goal in the second 45 minutes at the London Stadium.

The trip to Burnley therefore represents a chance to boost confidence around the club and take another step towards an illusive trophy. football.london brings you all the latest injury news ahead of the tie.

Ryan Sessegnon

Sessegnon has been missing for Spurs since sustaining an injury whilst on England U21 duty last month.

What Espirito Santo has said: “We don’t know [when he will return]. They [Sessegnon and Steven Bergwijn] are improving, day by day.”

Expected return date: Unknown.

Matt Doherty

Doherty was taken off at half-time in the Republic of Ireland’s comfortable win against Qatar in the last international break and didn’t make the squad against Newcastle or West Ham.

However, the club announced on Tuesday that he had rejoined the group and would be available for selection on Wednesday.

What Espirito Santo has said: “He’s back in the group, that’s good news. He’s going to be in the squad, but it’s up to us to decide the right moment to integrate all the players,” explained Espirito Santo.

Expected return date: October 27.

It’s been a great start for Nuno and Spurs fans so far

Steven Bergwijn

Before making his return against Vitesse, the Dutch winger hadn’t played since he limped out of Spurs’ 2-2 draw with Rennes in September.

Since scoring a stunner on his debut against Manchester City, Bergwijn has struggled to impress on a regular basis and, now back to full fitness, Santo will be eager to build his confidence up.

But he was only brought on in injury time on Sunday so it is likely he will be involved from the start at Turf Moor.
