The report adds that the Tottenham star picked up the initial injury during the previous international break. Alli missed our games against Inter Milan and Liverpool but was one of the stars in our Carabao Cup win over Watford at Stadium MK.
The 22-year-old has aggravated the issue and the report claims the Englishman could miss England’s clashes against Croatia and Spain on 12 and 15 October respectively.
This will come as a huge blow to Tottenham who haven’t started the season all that well. We lost a couple of Premier League games, prior to the Huddersfield tie, and started our Champions League journey with a loss at the San Siro.
The 22-year-old would have been an important player for Barcelona’s visit to Wembley on Wednesday as we look to kickstart our Champions League campaign.
A number of fans weren’t happy with this news and some reacted to the same:

Thats what happens when you play an injured player before being fully fit

Just the beginning of Spurs post WC injuries. Cold weather, busy fixtures, many more to come for all these players who did 3/4 days of preseason – Kane included

No Dele, no Eriksen, so that leaves Son, Lamela in the middle, and ooh who do we have, erm, Sissoko on the right vs Barca. RIP my sanity

This is all on Levy. We really needed quality back-up and this is what we get for thinking we’re smarter than everyone else
