Spurs already had an outbreak that affected nine first-team players in December, but boss Conte says there are a couple of issues in the camp.

‘We are checking a couple of situations, we’ll see,’ he said.

‘We are checking a couple of situations about Covid. Yeah, players. We didn’t do this (name them) in the past and we will continue to do this in the same way.

‘We are not 100 per cent sure they will miss the game.’

The Italian manager later clarified that the players in question are awaiting the results of PCR tests.  

Conte also reflected on his time with the Stamford Bridge club, admitting that he is looking forward to seeing familiar faces when he returns on Wednesday night.

‘For me for sure it will be great to come back to Stamford Bridge as [it is the] first time after I left Chelsea as manager to come back Stamford Bridge,’ he said. 

‘What I can say is that I spent two amazing seasons, created lot of friendship in the club.’
