September 5, 2022
As the Champions League is approaching, Antonio Conte’s 25-man squad for the competition has been revealed by UEFA officially, with new arrivals and youngsters included.
Spurs will attend Europe’s top club competition once again this year after finishing fourth in the Premier League last season. For this season, Spurs played once a week in the first few weeks.
Their first game was against West Ham last week, ending in a draw. Now Spurs have 4 wins and 2 draws in six opening fixtures, currently level on points with Man City.
On Wednesday, the North London host French side Marseille. It will be a tough battle between the two sides. Just like Spurs, the French side are also unbeaten in their first six matches in Ligue 1with 5 wins and 1 draw.
According to UEFA rules, Spurs must have a minimum of two goalkeepers in their squad and eight locally trained players. Conte’s squad have now been revealed. Let’s take a look at the full squad.
Goalkeeper: Hugo Lloris, Fraser Forster, Brandon Austin Defence: Matt Doherty, Davinson Sanchez, Emerson Royal, Eric Dier, Cristian Romero, Ryan Sessegnon, Djed Spence, Japhet Tanganga, Ben Davies, Clement Lenglet, Ivan Perisic Midfield: Oliver Skipp, Pierre Emile Hojbjerg, Pape Matar Sarr, Rodrigo Bentancur, Yves Bissouma Forwards: Richarlison, Harry Kane, Bryan Gil, Lucas Moura, Dejan Kulusevski, Son Heung-min
There are very few surprises in Conte’s team selection with all six summer arrivals involved, while youngsters Bryan Gil and Pape Matar Sarr are also included.
However, the final squad still needs to be confirmed since Spurs only have 7 homegrown players. This means Conte will either have to drop a player from the squad, or replace someone with a locally trained player. It will be interesting to see how Conte deals with the homegrown issue. The squad list is yet to be confirmed by Spurs. Fans will be curious to see who will be missed.
