Tanguy Ndombele update as Tottenham fans curious why he's not in squad to face Brighton

Tanguy Ndombele was omitted from the Tottenham squad to face Brighton on Thursday and fans have been wondering exactly where the player is. They expected to see the 22-year-old play against Brighton as he came off the bench against Chelsea and was one of Tottenham's better players in the second half during the dismal defeat to Frank Lampard's side. However, Jose Mourinho could well be leaving the Ndombele out with Saturday's game against Norwich in mind, with less than 48 hours between the two. Previously, Spurs boss did tell football.london that young midfielder still needs to work on his fitness and be stronger for the physical nature of the Premier League. "He's a multi-functional midifeld player," Mourinho said. "I'm not telling you the way we are going to play. Tanguy can play as a six, as an eight, as a double. He is a player with a lot of quality, he just needs to be physically strong and mentally adapted to the Premier League. The French league is a completely different story, a completely different profile. But [he's a] fantastic talent so we are happy that he can help us." Source- football.london
