Emerson Royal claim
Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte is ‘not the biggest fan’ of right wing-back Emerson Royal, which may make his run in the team a surprise to some supporters, according to journalist Paul Brown.
Brown told GIVEMESPORT: “It’s no secret that Conte is not the biggest fan of Emerson Royal, so to see him starting every week might be a surprise to some Spurs fans. But he must be doing something right.”
Marcelo Brozovic transfer regret
Marcelo Brozovic was reportedly on Tottenham’s transfer list in the January transfer window.
Brozovic worked under Conte during the Italian’s managerial stint at Inter Milan, winning the Serie A title with the Croatian midfielder being a stalwart in the Inter midfield
The Croatian scored a late goal as Inter beat Torino 1-0 at the San Siro to secure their fourth win of the season. Torino had frustrated Inter, but Brozovic snatched three points after getting on the end of a clever Nico Barella pass.
Premier League consider ‘London stadium switch’
According to The Athletic, a potential solution being discussed is that all London clubs play their games away from home next weekend.
Tottenham are due to play at home next Saturday against Leicester City, but the game could see the fixture reversed with Spurs travelling to the King Power Stadium instead.
In regards to next weekend’s fixtures, the Met Police told football.london: “Whether matches go ahead is a matter for the football authorities. If fixtures do take place, the Met will work with the relevant partners and ensure that appropriate policing plans are in place.”
