While Richarlison will be out for the time being, Conte is hoping to have Swedish forward Dejan Kulusevski back from injury in the near future.
However, the Spurs head coach stopped short of confirming his return for the game at Old Trafford as he does not want to risk a setback in his recovery.
“Kulusevski is working. We are going day-by-day with him. I don’t know about the game against Manchester United, the doctors are working with him,” he added.
“It’s the same injury [hamstring]. The medical department are working to recover him but at the same time there are situations that you have to go a bit slowly and not accelerate the process. Sometimes if you do that you worsen the situation.
“We hope to have him in the squad very soon. Deki is an important player for us and Richy is an important player for us.”
