Antonio Conte delivers Cristian Romero injury update for Tottenham vs Fulham

Cristian Romero of Tottenham Hotspur controls the ball during the Premier League match between Chelsea FC and Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge on August 14, 2022 in London, England.

Antonio Conte has confirmed that both Cristian Romero and Rodrigo Bentancur will be in the squad to face Fulham in the Premier League on Saturday. 

Tottenham face the Whites in a 3pm kick-off at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and they have been buoyed by Conte’s latest injury update.

Romero has missed the last three Premier League fixtures after picking up an injury during the 2-2 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Bentancur, meanwhile, was not risked against West Ham in midweek after a suspected concussion during the win over Wolves.

Both will be part of Conte’s plans for the Fulham clash though. Speaking during his pre-match press conference, Conte said:

 “Cuti Romero is in the squad, he had a training session with us after game against West Ham. Bentancur is ok, he has recovered 100%.”

Conte did also deliver news on two other players who have been missing from the squad recently. But it was not such good news for them. The Italian added: “Lucas Moura and [Bryan] Gil are still not available for game against Fulham.”

Spurs go into the match against Fulham unbeaten so far this season and with a 100% record at home so far, albeit without hitting their stride as yet. 

Fulham on the other hand have impressed on their return to the Premier League, drawing with Liverpool on the opening day and winning two games already to sit eighth in the table.
