Dele Alli will return from injury to face Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, with multiple English outlets predicting him to start.
Alli had missed the opening three games of the season with a hamstring injury, but he’s been back in full training with the rest of the squad this week.
Gareth Southgate left him out of the England squad for the upcoming European qualifiers, and Mauricio Pochettino admitted they’d be making a late decision on his fitness. Nonetheless, the media rumours suggest that the decision will be to include him.
Spurs have also had a couple of players ruled out with injury. Tanguy Ndombele is officially unavailable for the match after a training injury, and Kyle Walker-Peters has picked up a hamstring strain as well.
Walker-Peters’ injury leaves the team particularly short at right-back, with suggestions that Moussa Sissoko might start over out-of-favour Serge Aurier, who hasn’t been making Pochettino’s squads lately.
Regardless of the side Spurs put out, Arsenal have to feel this is an opportunity to leave their local rivals behind early in the new season.
