Tottenham manager Antonio Conte is expected to take charge of Saturday’s match against Brighton despite testing positive for Covid-19.
Conte tested positive at the weekend and has been “appropriately distancing” to avoid spreading the virus, according to the Premier League side.
Tottenham expect the Italian to be symptom-free in time for Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off at home to Brighton.
Conte’s pre-match press conference will now take place on Thursday via Zoom, rather than in-person at the club’s Hotspur Way training ground in Enfield.
Tottenham are currently fourth in the table following a run of four straight wins, the most recent a 4-0 victory at Aston Villa on Saturday.
