RYAN SESSEGNON suffered a nightmare on his big chance to impress new Tottenham boss Antonio Conte.
The 21-year-old was handed an opportunity to shine when he was named in the starting line-up for the Europa Conference League clash away to Slovenian minnows NS Mura.1Ryan Sessegnon suffered a nightmare on his first start under Antonio ConteCredit: Getty
But the former Fulham’s night was over after just half an hour after he was given his marching orders.
Sessegnon was firstly booked after only 11 minutes for a mistimed tackle.
The wing-back was then sent-off for a second booking 20 minutes laters.
Sessegnon looked furious after he was punished, but he caught his opponent while stretching for a loose ball, leaving the ref with no option.
That compounded a miserable first half for Spurs and Conte as they went in both a man and a goal down.
Tomi Horvat collected the ball on the right, drifted past Davinson Sanchez into the box and then curled a super effort straight into the far top corner.Most read in Premier LeagueLive BlogUNITED LATEST Rangnick 'deal reached' on interim basis, Pochettino permanent manager BOOSTLive BlogFOOTY LIVE Chelsea could target £84m Chiesa, Man City beat PSG reaction, Haaland contractLive BlogGUNNERS LATEST Lacazette contract latest, Renato Sanches interest, Stoica transferNICK OF TIME Meet Ralf Rangnick, the man tipped to save Man Utd who inspired Klopp & TuchelBLUE BUYS Five left-backs Chelsea could replace Chilwell with include Sandro and HernandezTRAORE SCARE FC Sheriff star Adama Traore collapses to floor clutching his chest vs Madrid

Daniel Jones week-to-week with neck strain; Mike Glennon expected to start Sunday; Giants sign Jake Fromm
Daniel Jones is considered week-to-week with a neck strain, the Daily News has learned, and Giants backup quarterback Mike Glennon is expected to start Sunday against the Dolphins in Miami.
Jones, 24, lowered his head on a read-option quarterback run on the second play of the game and was crunched by Eagles safety Rodney McLeod and linebacker Alex Singleton.
Fullback Eli Penny motioned to the official looking for a helmet-to-helmet flag, but none was thrown. Jones was not removed by the NFL’s concussion spotter. He finished the game and talked to the media after. But Jones felt the injury more acutely on Monday.
Jones’ injury is not landing him on injured reserve at this time, which means there is hope he may only miss two games at most. The third-year quarterback typically tries to play through injuries, too.
Still, Joe Judge and the Giants have to be careful managing a neck injury, which means protecting Jones from himself by holding him out this week at least.
Jones’ injury presses pause on the QB’s effort to continue building in-game momentum and chemistry with new play-caller Freddie Kitchens. Sunday’s win was the first game with Kitchens calling plays into Jones’ helmet following the firing of offensive coordinator Jason Garrett.
This is the third straight year Jones has missed time due to injury. This is also the second time this season that Jones has gotten hurt by lowering his head forward and not adequately protecting himself at the end of a run.
He was concussed and knocked out of a Week 5 loss at Dallas when he lowered his head at the goal line and went helmet-to-helmet with Cowboys linebacker Jabril Cox. Jones then cleared the concussion protocol to play the following week against the L.A. Rams.
“Something we talk to Daniel about a lot is when’s the time to push for the extra yards, when is the time to go ahead and get down and slide and protect yourself or get out of bounds, things of that nature,” Judge said in October.
On Tuesday, Jones’ neck strain and Fromm’s signing were first reported by NFL Network.
Fromm, 23, was a Bills fifth-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft out of Georgia. His signing gives the Giants six former Georgia players on their 53-man active roster and seven in their building, including the practice squad.
The Georgia crew includes edge rusher Lorenzo Carter, 25, safety J.R. Reed, 25, linebacker Tae Crowder, 24, Fromm, offensive tackle Andrew Thomas, 22, edge rusher Azeez Ojulari, 21, and practice squad guard Isaiah Wilson, 22.
The Giants have always liked Fromm as a developmental prospect. So they’re poaching him now because they had an extra roster spot and Jones is hurt. Fromm presumably would serve as Glennon’s backup since he’s already on the active roster, though the Giants also have Brian Lewerke on the practice squad.
Fromm is guaranteed three weeks salary by getting signed off a practice squad to another team’s active roster, per terms of the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement, regardless of how the Giants proceed after this week.
