Alli posted a picture of herself on a bike on the club’s training field on Tuesday along with the caption, ‘I missed this place! Feeling blessed. ”
The photo was taken by teammate Erik Lamela, who responded to Alli’s message: ‘What a photo bro!’ before uploading proof of his camera skills to his own account.
The English midfielder will have the opportunity to work with Lamela and Co for the first time since the blocking on Wednesday, as Jose Mourinho’s men return to group training.

Alli and Co should not be allowed to interact, while there are strict social distance rules and a number of other coronavirus security measures.
