Report: 22-year-old ‘most likely’ Tottenham youngster to be given a chance by Conte, he ‘can count on him’
Skipp has not started a competitive game for Spurs since being sidelined for the remainder of last season back in February.
But it seems the England U21 international could get his chance soon and Conte recently said he ‘can count on him’.
Skipp to be given chance by Conte
This includes Japhet Tanagnga, Fraser Forster, Pape Matar Sarr, Bryan Gil and Brandon Auston. But Skipp is apparently the ‘most likely’ from the bunch to get his chance next month.
Spurs face a gruelling fixture schedule in October, with nine games packed into the month. And while Forster is on standby due to Hugo Lloris’ injury, Skipp should soon get his chance to impress Conte.
The Spurs academy product was a mainstay in Conte’s side before suffering an injury last season.
Skipp was often a standout performer while playing alongside Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg but now faces increased competition for a place in the side.
Since his long-term injury, Tottenham have brought in Rodrigo Bentancur and Yves Bissouma.
The Athletic notes that Conte has used the second fewest players in the Premier League so far this season, with just 19 players getting minutes.
But Skipp will be hoping this changes after the international break with a bust fixture schedule coming up before the World Cup.
