Pochettino reveals Dele Alli may return from injury for Man City clash

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that Dele Alli has started full training again after missing the last month of action with a hamstring injury.

England international Alli has not featured for Spurs since their Carabao Cup fixture against Watford on the 20th of September.

Spurs have not seemed to miss the 22-year-old too badly winning all three of their Premier League fixtures during his absence, although fans of the North London club will be delighted to hear that the talented playmaker is close to regaining full fitness.

However, Argentine coach Pochettino admitted though that he is still not sure if Alli will be ready to feature in his sides crunch fixture against Man City this Sunday at Wembley.

“We are happy that he started [training] today with the group,” Pochettino said in his pre-match press conference.

“We hope that he will be available for Monday but I am not sure.”

Spurs have made their best ever start to a Premier League season after collecting 21 points from their opening nine games of the campaign.

However, they face a massive task to beat Pep Guardiola’s hugely impressive side this weekend. City remain undefeated thus far, and have conceded but a single goal across all fixtures in their last seven matches. It’s no wonder Sports Betting Dime has Guardiola’s team as the overwhelming favourites to win at Wembley and to regain their Premier League crown this season.
