Tottenham have criticised the actions of three first-team players after they were pictured breaking coronavirus guidelines by gathering with their families for a Christmas party.
A picture circulating on social media shows Erik Lamela, Sergio Reguilon and Giovani Lo Celso together at a party, which West Ham’s Manuel Lanzini was also in attendance at.
“We are extremely disappointed and strongly condemn this image showing some of our players with family and friends together at Christmas particularly as we know the sacrifices everybody around the country made to stay safe over the festive period,” read the Spurs statement.
“The rules are clear, there are no exceptions, and we regularly remind all our players and staff about the latest protocols and their responsibilities to adhere and set an example.
“The matter will be dealt with internally.”
Reguilon was named on the bench for Saturday’s Premier League game with Leeds, but neither Lamela nor Lo Celso were included in Jose Mourinho’s matchday squad.

A West Ham United spokesperson said: “The Club has set the highest possible standards with its protocols and measures relating to COVID-19 so we are disappointed to learn of Manuel Lanzini’s actions.
“The matter has been dealt with internally and Manuel has been strongly reminded of his responsibilities.”
