Tottenham head coach Antonio Conte reveals Cristian Romero’s hamstring injury is “serious”.

“I think his injury is a bit serious. We have to wait. I don’t know how long it will take him to recover. His injury is worse than (Giovani) Lo Celso and (Dane) Scarlett. He needs a another scan, then the doctor can give more details.

Ex-boss Nuno Espirito Santo left his entire top-choice XI at home for a game at Vitesse Arnhem last month, but Conte said all of his fit players will travel to Slovenia.

He added: “All available players will come with us. They have to be ready to play against Mura. I have to rotate because there are players who are a bit tired.”
