Tottenham: Conte ‘expected’ to recall Dejan Kulusevski

Tottenham: Conte ‘expected’ to recall Dejan Kulusevski -Tottenham Hotspur News

Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte is expected to recall ‘frightening’ talent Dejan Kulusevski for their Champions League clash against Marseille.

The Lowdown: Historic night…

The north Londoners make their first appearance in Europe’s most coveted competition for over two years, coming after their most recent Round of 16 clash against RB Leipzig in 2020.

A lot has changed for the Premier League high-flyers since those two legs with Conte now at the helm and a real sense of optimism at N17.

Spurs have just enjoyed a very productive summer transfer window, completing eight major signings in Ivan Perisic, Fraser Forster, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison, Clement Lenglet, Djed Spence, Destiny Udogie and Cristian Romero on a permanent deal from Atalanta.

Conte will have one eye on Man City at the weekend as they aim to maintain their unbeaten start to the English top flight but this evening’s encounter with Marseille proves equally as important and could help to set the tone of their group campaign.

The Latest: Kulusevski recall expected…

After the Sweden international was replaced by Richarlison in the starting eleven against Fulham last Saturday, Tottenham are now ‘expected’ to recall Kulusevksi for Marseille, according to 90min.

The 22-year-old starlet was rested against Spurs’ last league opponents but could well be handed Conte’s nod tonight alongside the likes of Ivan Perisic and Ben Davies.

The Verdict: Right call…

Conte will want to get off to a flying start to Group D and recalling Kulusevski looks to be the right decision.

He has been a revelation since joining the club from Juventus in January and has been called a ‘frightening talent’ by members of the Italian media (Carlo Garganese).

Conte himself has praised Kulusevski’s application in training, not to mention he has notched an impressive six goals and ten assists in just 26 games for Spurs since putting pen to paper.

Spurs will need to field a strong side tonight regardless of what looms at City and we believe the winger should certainly be on the team sheet.
