Watch| Conte confirms another key Spurs player is out for the remainder of the season
By Harry Hotspur -

Ouch. Cuti Romero will miss out on what is left of the club’s season due to a knock picked up during the Liverpool game. Ordinarily, this would be a huge blow, however, as the gaffer points out, Davinson Sanchez and Joe Rondon have both demonstrated that they are professionals.

The inability of these two to command even modest roles under Antonio Conte has been a concern. It now looks as if we do have some squad depth – after all!

More of the Colombian’s excellent contributions against Arsenal to follow.

Sanchez was under no pressure against Arsenal, once someone is breathing down on him he crumbles.

When he’s on form he’s probably the most commanding defender we’ve got, especially wiv ‘is ‘ead.

Go on the On Form Sanchez!

You’re right, when playing well he’s half decent – however unfortunately for the other 2 out of 3 games he plays he’s a complete liability, as he will no doubt demonstrate on Sunday!

Great to see Conte put him in his place, whether it is just words after a game or not, it’s noted, and it will be playing on the little t osser’s mind next time they meet.
Schooled him today…

So who would believe it, we are approaching the last two games of the season.. We are relying on a back 3 of Davies, Dier and Sanchez to help us get top four… Believe in the ConteDust..

Conte can hardly say I’ve got no cover, or the cover I’ve got is woeful….

I’d go with Rodon. Sanchez is a mistake waiting to happen even on his best day.

I’d go with Roden too.. There must be a reason Conte doesn’t fancy him because he defends well. Perhaps his passing isn’t up to scratch compared to the others. Perhaps he gets outperformed in training.

Yet weirdly he walks straight into the Welsh team and always plays quite well 🤷🏻‍♂️

I think we’ll still take the full six points. Unfortunately I think Arse will do the same. Hope I’m wrong, but placing a bet on it

I have a sneaky feeling the Woolwich Nomads will drop points on Monday…..but hand on heart I’m not completely convinced we will win against Burnley TBH

If the crowd is as loud as Thursday then that will help, just depends how Spurs handle the pressure

An early goal please to settle the nerves, need some leaders on the pitch to marshall the troops

Sanchez should be capable enough against the likes of Burnley and Norwhich. I guess we will need to get used to Romero picking up these knocks due to the combative nature of his defending but he’s been very good for Spurs since getting a run in the side and has been the launch-pad for a lot of out attacks with his aggressive press & tackling.

Let’s hope so. In these games, the onus will be on us to create and we can’t afford a brainfart to cost us the opener.

I think I’ve read it all now; losing our best centre back is a blessing in disguise.

Perhaps, but there’s a 0% anyone thinks losing Romero is a blessing in disguise. Sarcasm or satirical positivity, take your pick

Yes of course I’d rather have Romero in the lineup. Satirical positivity.

Losing Romero may turn out to be a blessing in disguise as I always think he’s one slide tackle away from a red. Especially against teams like Burnley and Norwich looking to get his goat.

The real issue is how are we going to breakdown these teams that will sit back happy to take a point?

Burnley need more than a point.

Bit of a blow, good job we are playing lower ranked sides. I think Romero is proving bit lightweight for this division, he’s had loads of knocks since joining which is a slight concern.

He might even out-do Lamela! He seems to have lots of smaller ones. Both of them came from Italy, the pace is slower there and perhaps their robustness isn’t tested to the same extent? Who knows…

Couldn’t have come at a worse time. Rodon is the more composed defender, but won’t be selected.

Stop with it already and deal with facts. Where would you put Davies who is going start? Do you trust Rodon to play on the right over Sanchez. Dier will anchor the middle. I wanted to say it is iffy, but with Davies starting like it or not Sanchez will start on the right. This is not even close to who is better it makes tactical sense to go with Sanchez and squeeze them cheeks real hard.
