TOT VS CHE: Tottenham Suffer Two More Injury Blows ahead of Chelsea's Clash

Nuno Espirito Santo's side suffered two more injuries during their Europa Conference League draw with Rennes.

Tottenham have added Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn to their injury list ahead of Sunday's London derby against Chelsea.

Moura and Bergwijn were both named to Nuno Espirito Santo's starting XI for Tottenham's Europa Conference League group stage opener at Rennes on Thursday night, which ended in a 2-2 draw.

Bergwijn was forced to withdraw on the half-hour mark after appearing to aggravate the ankle injury that had kept him out of last weekend's 3-0 Premier League defeat to Crystal Palace, and the visitors' misery was compounded when Moura hobbled off the field early in the second half.

Nuno Espirito Santo is now facing a selection crisis in attack, with Son still recovering from a calf injury.

During his post-match press conference at Roazhon Park, the Portuguese confirmed that Moura and Bergwijn's availability for this weekend's match against Chelsea is also in doubt.

“Really painful. Too early to say [for Sunday]. The physios are working with them,"

We don't know if they will be fit. It's tough", Santo told reporters.

With that being said, it could be a walk in the park for Thomas Tuchel's side this weekend. Chelsea should be able to take all three points and continue their unbeaten start to the season.
