He has made a total of 37 appearances for the team this season, starting 21 of Spurs' 28 Premier League games and coming off the bench in the other four. With Conte's tenure at the club anticipated to come to an end, another issue Tottenham may encounter is unfortunately Davies was the club's only fit left-back, with Ryan Sessegnon currently recovering from a leg injury as well.
