Tottenham are facing the prospect of going into Saturday’s clash at Crystal Palace without seven members of their first-team squad. No less than four Spurs players have suffered injury scares during the international break, while three travelled to South America against the club’s wishes.
Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo is facing a possible selection crisis ahead of this weekend’s clash against Palace.
With several members of his squad jetting out across the world over the last week or so, some are set to return in worse shape than they left.
Nuno has been left sweating on the fitness of Ryan Sessegnon and Oliver Skipp, who both suffered setbacks while on duty for England U21’s.
The latter suffered a groin injury in Tuesday night’s win over Kosovo, while Sessegnon picked up a “knock” in training, according to the FA.

Meanwhile, Son Heung-Min missed South Korea’s World Cup qualifying win over Lebanon on Tuesday after sustaining a calf injury.
The forward played the full 90 minutes of the 0-0 draw against Iraq last Thursday, but is now said to have strained his right calf, making him a doubt to feature this weekend.
“Heung-min felt uncomfortable in his right calf after training on the 6th [of September], and as a result of the test, he was excluded in order to protect the player,” the KFA said in a statement.

The final player to suffer an injury setback in the Spurs squad is Steven Bergwijn, who limped off in the 6-1 win over Turkey on Tuesday.
The winger had heavy strapping and ice on his left ankle, but the extent of his injury has not been confirmed.

Giovani Lo Celso and Cristian Romero were both involved in that game, but have since been released by Argentina.
According to the Evening Standard, they have met up with Davinson Sanchez, who flew out his native Colombia, in Croatia and will spend 10 days training there to avoid being placed in a quarantine hotel in the UK.
That potentially puts them in line to feature against Chelsea next weekend, with one of the club’s fitness coaches travelling out to help to get them into shape.
The club are set to fine Lo Celso and Romero on their return.
