West Ham face a real test of their resources as they take on Tottenham in a huge Premier League clash this afternoon, just three days after their mammoth Europa League effort against Sevilla.
Tottenham did not pick up any fresh concerns in the win over Brighton, and Conte should therefore only have the trio of Ryan Sessegnon, Oliver Skipp and Japhet Tanganga absent again this weekend.
There is optimism over Sessegnon returning straight after the international break, but Conte has not been able to put a timeframe on Skipp and Tanganga's recoveries and has not been afraid to make his feeling towards the medical team known.
Always one to demand a lot from his first XI, Conte will likely stick with the same group of players who got the job done against Brighton, as Kane (178) seeks to move closer to fourth-placed Sergio Aguero (184) in the all-time Premier League scoring charts.
Meanwhile, West Ham remain without defensive duo Angelo Ogbonna and Vladimir Coufal following their respective operations, and Jarrod Bowen's heel problem will likely render him unavailable until after the international break.
Moyes is sure to consider some alterations despite the magnitude of the contest, with West Ham having less than 72 hours to recover after 120 minutes in Europe, as Ryan Fredericks and Arthur Masuaku provide alternative options in defence.
Yarmolenko and Nikola Vlasic should both freshen up the attack, while Kurt Zouma played on Thursday despite the RSPCA beginning the process to bring a prosecution against the centre-back - who has been left out of the France squad - for slapping and kicking his cat.
Tottenham Hotspur possible starting lineup:
Lloris; Romero, Dier, Davies; Doherty, Bentancur, Hojbjerg, Reguilon; Kulusevski, Kane, Son
West Ham United possible starting lineup:
Fabianski; Fredericks, Dawson, Zouma, Masuaku; Rice, Soucek; Yarmolenko, Vlasic, Benrahma; Antonio
