Antonio Conte confirms Spurs without Ryan Sessegnon for home clash with Leeds

Ryan Sessegnon will miss out when Tottenham host Leeds in the Premier League on Saturday, Spurs boss Antonio Conte has confirmed.

Sessegnon sustained a minor hamstring injury during the midweek Carabao Cup loss at Nottingham Forest.

Conte said of the left-back: "Today he didn't train with us. He had a little problem and he's not available for tomorrow's game."

Cristian Romero (calf) and Son Heung-min (facial) are also set to be absent, but Dejan Kulusevski and Richarlison featured off the bench on Wednesday and are pushing to start.

"We have another training session before we decide about the starting XI," Conte added.

The Italian was also asked about his contract situation at the club.

"You know very well that my contract expires in June," he said. "Until that moment, the club has to make the best evaluation.

"I think that like anything, you need to deserve and it will be important to see the rest of the season and if we are happy with the improvement we are doing.

"From my side, it's important to feel that I deserve a new contract, to sign a new contract with this club. I have to feel this."

Meanwhile, Leeds will still be without a number of players for the trip to London.

Patrick Bamford (hip) is still not fit while Mateusz Klich picked up a knee injury in the midweek defeat by Wolves - and they are joined by Stuart Dallas (broken leg) and Adam Forshaw (ankle) in the treatment room.

Jack Harrison is a doubt with a muscle strain but Joe Gelhardt is fit despite limping off at Molineux.

"We know this is a big challenge once again against a top opponent in our league that is disciplined to play the way they do," said Leeds boss Jesse Marsch.

"But the beauty of where we are is that we are not perfect but we are not afraid, we have shown this year that we are not afraid of big opponents.

"We are going to go down and play confidently and go after the game in every way."
