Eric Dier from Spurs speaks to us about some sustainability initiatives the club has implemented ahead of the first ever zero-carbon game between Tottenham and Chelsea in September 19.

Lo Celso Romero, Sanchez, and Sanchez spent 10 days training in Croatia. They did this on their own, so they could avoid being forced to stay in hotels rented by the Government back home.

Rennesattacker Martin Terrier is unlikely to be present, but Jeremy Doku (hamstring) will also not likely to be out. Lovro Majer, Birger Meling (adductor), and Alfred Gomis (“quarantine”) are all likely to be available.
