Team news

Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo confirmed Heung-min Son and Eric Dier have not travelled to France for the Europa Conference League game with Rennes.

Son has a calf injury sustained on international duty and Dier sustained a dead leg in the 3-0 defeat at Crystal Palace on Saturday. Neither travelled on Wednesday, along with Ryan Sessegnon, but Steven Bergwijn did following a recent ankle injury.

Tottenham will again be without their South American trio Giovanni Lo Celso, Cristian Romero and Davinson Sanchez, who travelled to join up with their countries without the permission of their club, and will be disciplined when they return.

Ahead of the world’s first zero carbon game between Tottenham and Chelsea on September 19, Eric Dier of Spurs talks us through some of the sustainability measures the club has taken.

Lo Celso, Romero and Sanchez have spent the last 10 days in Croatia, training on their own to avoid the need to self-isolate in a Government-issued hotel back in England.

Rennes attacker Martin Terrier (thigh) is not expected to be available, with Jeremy Doku also out (hamstring). Alfred Gomis (quarantine), Birger Meling (adductor) and Lovro Majer (hip) are also likely to be out.
