Tottenham face an in-form Chelsea on Sunday, and Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo isn’t looking forward to this game at all.

Tottenham have been caught up in a major injury crisis as they travelled to France for the Europa League Conference clash to face Rennes with three players out through injury.

Spurs made the trip to France without Son Heung-min, Eric Dier, Ryan Sessegnon and the three South American players who are still quarantining on an island in Croatia.

Steven Bergwijn who had only managed to shake off a knock to make the starting XI for the game was forced off after half-an-hour, and Lucas Moura also limped out of the contest.

While addressing the media after the game, Nuno wasn’t happy with the outcome of things and tried to maintain a positive attitude.

However, when speaking to Spurs TV, he admitted that he was worried about facing Chelsea this weekend.

When speaking to Spurs TV, he said: “Many obstacles. It’s not good, it’s not good. I’m worried, naturally. I should not share with you, this is not the moment, but just to be honest.

“I think the boys did well because it’s tough. Things coming and coming and we keep trying to find solutions. The boys did everything.”

Asked if he felt things were conspiring against him after two more injuries, Nuno continued: “No, let’s not mention these things, let’s focus on what we have to do. But it’s been hard. It’s been hard.”
