The Tottenham Hotspur star is a big doubt for tomorrow night's game.
Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino addressed the media today, ahead of his side's Champions League clash with Manchester City tomorrow night, and responded when asked whether Dele Alli will be fit to play, as quoted by Football.London.
The 23-year-old injured his hand playing against City last week, and he missed Saturday's game at home to Huddersfield Town, although he might have been rested anyway had he been fit.
Dele has been a key player for Tottenham over the last few years, and he has been in impressive form this season, racking up seven goals and five assists in 29 appearances in all competitions thus far.
Spurs fans will be desperate to see him at the Etihad tomorrow night, and Pochettino responded to reporters today when asked whether the England international will be fit enough to make the starting XI, as quoted by Football.London:
"We need to assess him. We’ll have our last training session today and then we’ll decide."
Tottenham will be in for an incredibly tough evening against Manchester City tomorrow night, regardless of which 11 players start the game, but having Dele fit and available will be a huge boost for the north London outfit.
