Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte, on Friday disclosed that Super Eagles’ captain, John Mikel Obi and Blues skipper, John Terry are both out of Saturday’s Premier League London derby against Tottenham Hotspur due to injuries.
Conte told newsmen during his pre-match press conference ahead of the clash.
The 29-year-old has not played a part in Chelsea under Conte since he returned from this year’s Rio Olympic Games where he won bronze, while the former England captain, whose season has been hampered with injuries, has appeared in only a few games.

According to Italian coach,

“John Terry and John Mikel Obi will both miss tomorrow’s game against Spurs with muscular injuries.”
Conte admits it will be a tough encounter for his team against Spurs.

“Chelsea’s last meeting with Spurs was very strange (last season’s 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge). In the first half Tottenham played very well, in the second half… another game,” the former Juventus boss recalls.

“It’s important to think of the present. Tomorrow will be very tough against a strong opponent. Tottenham has a great manager, talented players, very young, and I think they are improving. We have to pay great attention.”
He added,

”I am pushing my players to be focused, but I think they are ready. Tomorrow it’ s important to play good football to win the game. You have to put your passion in the right way.

“Tottenham can create great difficulty for any team in this league, and can fight until the end to win the title.

“The last game was about result for Tottenham but tomorrow is another one and this is a special derby. It will be a great game.”
