Tottenham are in a bad place at the moment, as they are currently facing injury crisis and have a very thin squad for the upcoming games.

With Tottenham already having slight injury problems, two more players suffered injuries in Thursday’s 2-2 Europa League Conference draw with Rennes.

Already, 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.

Tottenham welcome Chelsea to the North of London on Sunday, and Nuno is counting on the home advantage to make the difference at the Tottenham Stadium.

Speaking about facing Chelsea, he told Spurs TV: “It’s at home and we’re going to have our fans behind us. We will compete. It’s going to be a tough match, but we’re going to be ready for it.

“They’re a very good team, a very good team. All the teams in the Premier League are very tough.

“Today we prove football is becoming harder and harder because every place that you go the teams give everything that they have. So we have to match these situations and try to improve on our quality. But we are on the way. We want to build and become stronger.”
