Antonio Conte expected to take charge of Tottenham vs Brighton despite positive Covid test

Tottenham expect Antonio Conte to be in charge of Saturday’s match against Brighton & Hove Albion despite testing positive for Covid at the weekend. The Spurs boss has been appropriately distancing since and he is expected to be symptom free by the time the Seagulls travel to north London.

Due to hold his pre-match press conference at Hotspur Way on Thursday afternoon in front of the media, Spurs will now hold the press conference virtually over Zoom as a result. Tottenham will be hoping that Conte’s positive test does not impact their preparations too much after a fine run of form in recent weeks.

Victorious at Aston Villa last time out with a 4-0 triumph, the Lilywhites have won seven of their last nine Premier League games to move into fourth spot. Currently holding a three-point advantage over north London rivals Arsenal, Spurs now find themselves six points above Manchester United and West Ham following recent results.
