Let me try. Emerson is terrible, Doherty is equally as terrible. Conte is watching Spence every single day in training and thinks he is no better at the moment than Doherty or Emerson. Therefore, based on his experience and expectations of players to play to his game plan, Spence isn’t starting yet. Bissouma is in the same boat but has several years or experience on Spence which means if needs must, he is a safer bet to play when needed. Spence will play at some stage but if Conte doesn’t think he is ready to do the job he wants him to do, then he isn’t ready.
