Dean Jones has claimed that Ryan Sessegnon could be in line to start for Tottenham Hotspur ahead of Ivan Perisic this weekend after some information he was told coming from the training ground.
After a strong start to the season – going undefeated in their first five Premier League games, sitting third as a result – Spurs will hope to continue this run of form over the weekend.
Indeed, just a matter of days after drawing with West Ham United, Antonio Conte’s men will now host London rivals Fulham at home.
With the fixtures coming thick and fast, though, rotation may be needed at Tottenham and Jones has claimed that Sessegnon could be in line for a start after being notably ‘involved’ during an ‘in-house game’ during training this week.
While speaking on the Chasing Green Arrows podcast, he explained: “I know that Sessegnon is obviously chomping at the bit to start this game.
“I know that there was someone I know was watching some of the pattern of play. And Sessegnon was the guy involved, but he said he wasn’t 100 per cent convinced that that was the lineup.
“Because there were two other people in that team, which did look the strongest side of the Tottenham in-house game that was going on.
“And yeah, it looks like Sessegnon was playing.”
