Emerson Royal left trailing behind Tottenham 30-year-old after they have sprint race in training today

Tottenham Hotspur defender Emerson Royal was left trailing behind Heung-Min Son after they had a sprint race in training today. 

Antonio Conte’s men can be seen on Hayters TV preparing for their opening fixture in the Champions League against Marseille tomorrow evening

Spurs have got off to an excellent start in the Premier League this season as they remain unbeaten. 

Conte will be hoping his side can bring this form into Europe as they aim to hit the ground running tomorrow. 

The Spurs side were being put through their paces by Conte this morning and Emerson got into a race with Son.

Emerson left trailing behind Son 

The pair can be seen laughing together on Hayters TV during a training drill and then they start a sprint race.

Emerson appears to wait for the 30-year-old on the touchline before initiating the race. 

But Son left the Brazilian behind while laughing. He then slows down as he clearly thinks that he’s won. 

Emerson had other ideas though and carried on sprinting. But Son once again picked up the pace as the pair laughed together. 

Son and Emerson clearly have a good relationship as they are often seen together in Tottenham training.

Emerson isn’t exactly a slow player but Son is very fast and it’s no surprise that he beat his teammate in a sprint race. 

The pair look highly likely to start the game tomorrow night as they have started every game under Conte this season. 

The Italian will be hoping to enjoy a more successful Champions League campaign with Spurs after being knocked out in the group stages at his former club Inter Milan. 

Tottenham look well-equipped to qualify for the knockout stages this season after being drawn into a more forgiving group. 

Conte’s men will be eager to get off to a strong start at home tomorrow night but will have to avoid being complacent against an in-form Marseille side.
