Ryan Sessegnon was reportedly a late withdrawal from the Tottenham squad to face Chelsea this afternoon because of injury.
Dan Kilpatrick of the London Evening Standard understands that the young left-sided player was going to be on the bench at Stamford Bridge but felt “muscle tightness” prior to kickoff and was replaced by Oliver Skipp.

Sessegnon has been used intermittently by Jose Mourinho and may have been in line for some minutes as a substitute today, with Ben Davies playing his third game in six days after returning from a three-month layoff.
Although Mourinho sees the 19-year-old as a full-back in the long term, it is another attacking option now unavailable to him with Harry Kane and Son Heung-min already out. Moussa Sissoko and Juan Foyth are also sidelined.
Let’s hope this isn’t serious as we need every player we can get right now – and it would be a blow to the lad too as his first season at the club has already been disrupted by injury.
