Tottenham welcomed players who played in the South American qualifiers and needed to re-introduce themselves later, as in the cases of Argentine Giovanni Lo Celso and Cristian Romero.

However, the main concern of Nuno Espírito Santo is isolation by Covid.

As a standard measure in cases of illness, the UK has requested a mandatory ten-day quarantine. This situation would cause players to lose not only the match against Newcastle, but also the match against Vitesse, from the Netherlands, in the Conference League. The isolation period will still prevent them from playing in the Premier League again, as Tottenham face West Ham.
