Antonio Conte has confirmed that Tottenham Hotspur winger Steven Bergwijn is injured.

Tottenham had a lousy Tuesday after drawing 1-1 at Southampton, who had 10 men for more than half the game.

And the Spurs coach revealed to Football London after Bergwijn was out of the contest due to injury.

And he added that he would not be back in time for the trip to Watford on Saturday.

He said, “Steven is hurt. During the match against Crystal Palace he felt a calf problem and together he was injured with Lo Celso, Romero and Sessegnon. They will not return during the weekend.

Another hit

This is another bad news for the Lilywhites.

Say what you want about the Dutch winger, but he was Tottenham’s best player by distance in the League Cup win over West Ham United last week.

Okay, he hasn’t been doing it regularly for Spurs, but his performance against the Hammers was a great reminder that Bergwijn, back in the day, is an advantage.

In theory, Conte’s team should still have enough to win at Vicarage Road, with Claudio Ranieri’s team struggling en masse of late.

But adding Bergwijn to the disabled list is really a huge negative for the Italian manager.

Dropped points

Don’t worry: it was two lost points for Tottenham.

Even if the North Londoners lost a goal, the fact that they had one more man than the Saints for 50 minutes illustrates that a 1-1 draw is a horrible result.

They were a bit unlucky, as Harry Kane had a goal scored in chalk and Fraser Forster fortuitously avoided an own goal.

But still, Bergwijn could have been the difference against Southampton and his absence could certainly be felt again at Watford.
