Dele Alli not injured despite being absent from Tottenham squad vs Leicester

Tottenham Hotspur midfield star Dele Alli was left out from the matchday squad for the weekend clash against Leicester City. Now, BBC Match of the Day (h/t Football.london) has revealed that the 24-year-old was not injured despite not being included in the squad.

Tottenham lost 2-0 to the Foxes, courtesy a Jamie Vardy penalty and an own goal from Toby Alderweireld. It was a largely disappointing display by the players and considering that both Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso failed to impose themselves on the game, we could have done with someone like Alli on the pitch.

The exit's that way Dele - Mourinho forcing Alli out?

Mourinho has hardly used Alli this season

However, the 24-year-old was axed from the matchday squad by Mourinho. This despite teams are now allowed to name nine substitutes for matches according to new rules. And now, it is being claimed that injury was not the reason behind the England international’s absence as he is fully fit.

This development does not bode well for Alli ahead of the January transfer window. The former MK Dons star has cut a marginalised figure at the club this season, having rarely been used this season, especially in the Premier League.

It seemed like things could be changing when he got some minutes in the games against Crystal Palace and Liverpool. However, his latest omission against Leicester could mean that things are back to square one.

Alli has played just 341 minutes of football across all competitions this season. He has netted a couple of goals and set up one more in the process. The midfielder has been linked with an exit ahead of the January window. It will be interesting to see what the coming weeks hold in store for him.
