Jose Mourinho ‘leaves Dele Alli out of his squad yet AGAIN’ for Tottenham’s visit to Burnley tonight… with out-of-favour star having played just 21 minutes in the Premier League since starting opening day defeat by Everton
The England star has started just once in the Premier League all season – against Everton on the opening weekend – and has only racked up a further 21 minutes of top-flight action, having come off the bench away at Manchester United.
Alli will again be absent at Turf Moor this evening after Mourinho deemed the midfielder surplus to requirements once again.
Dele Alli , pictured in action against LASK last week, is not in the squad to face Burnley tonight
The Athletic claim that the 24-year-old did not travel to Burnley with the rest of the squad on Sunday, despite coming off the bench in the Europa League last week.
Alli, who is not suffering with injury, got the final 30 minutes of the 3-0 win over LASK, but Mourinho believes he has superior options at his disposal.
After being substituted during Spurs’ defeat by Everton, Alli has found himself out of favour, particularly in the Premier League.
He has been left out of a number of squads and considered making a late loan switch away during the transfer window, with PSG among the clubs keen on him.
