Tottenham are nervously awaiting the nature of Cristian Romero’s hamstring injury after Antonio Conte revealed another scan is needed.

The Argentine defender suffered the muscle problem in his country’s 0-0 draw against Brazil last week in a World Cup qualifier.

The problem led the 23-year-old to admit the injury is ‘serious’ from Spurs’ win over Leeds last weekend and manager Conte.

“We are waiting for another scan,” he said ahead of the Spurs’ Europa Conference League trip to Mura.

“I think his injury is a bit serious. We have to wait. I don’t know how long he will have to recover. His injury is worse than (Giovani) Lo Celso and (Dane) Scarlett.

“He needs another scan so the doctor can give more details.”

Sunday’s 2-1 home win over Leeds saw the return of left-back Ryan Sessegnon after a long spell on the sidelines and Conte revealed he will start Thursday night’s game.

“I can’t wait to see his performance because I repeat: he is a talented player with a lot of room for improvement,” added the Italian boss.

“Now it’s important to give him regularity, try to avoid injuries and give him the chance to be available for every game.”

Conte’s predecessor Nuno Espirito Santo chose to leave his first-choice XI at home for a game against Vitesse and suffered a 1-0 loss last month, but Conte insisted that all fit players go to Slovenia.

“All available players will come with us,” he said.

“They have to be ready to play against Mura. I have to rotate because there are players who are a little tired.’
