Jose Mourinho confirmed that Alli will miss Thursday’s clash with a ‘minor’ hamstring injury
When asked about Alli’s injury situation during his pre-game press conference, Mourinho replied, “Small but not ready for tomorrow.
“We know he had a bit of a sad history of hamstrings last season, I think, so it’s careful and not too risky if you know he has a little problem there. So out tomorrow. ‘
Fans of Mourinho and Tottenham hope Alli will be back in time for their crunch in North London Derby with neighbors Arsenal on Sunday.

Awaiting Thursday’s visit to Bournemouth, Tottenham are currently on seventh place behind their arch-rivals Arsenal – who have played another game.
