Antonio Conte hopes to have 'all players' available for North London derby

Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte has expressed his confidence in having "all" of his players available for their upcoming North London derby with Arsenal.

The Lilywhites have been ravaged by attacking injuries in recent weeks, with Dejan Kulusevski, Richarlison and Lucas Moura currently sidelined alongside midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur.

None of the quartet was available for the trip to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace on Wednesday night, nor was the suspended Yves Bissouma, as Tottenham sought to bounce back from their 2-0 loss to Aston Villa on New Year's Day.

Despite their distinct lack of attacking options on the bench, Conte's side marched to a resounding 4-0 win thanks to Harry Kane's brace alongside strikes from Matt Doherty and Son Heung-min.

Spurs' next Premier League clash sees them welcome Arsenal to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on January 15, and Conte is hopeful that he could be working with a fully-fit squad for the contest.

"My hope is to recover players who are in this moment injured, because we are talking about important players. I hope in these 10 days to have the possibility in the next game against Arsenal to have all of the players available," Conte told the press after beating Palace.

With several senior players out injured, Bryan Gil and Pape Sarr stepped up to the plate for Tottenham at Selhurst Park, with the former setting up Kane's goal on the night.
