Tottenham Hotspur announced today that Dele Alli would miss the Premier League return against Manchester United next week due to an FA suspension.
This one-match ban comes after the Spurs midfielder was charged with discrimination and bringing the game into disrepute (Sky Sports) after appearing to mock a man of Asian appearance amidst the Coronavirus outbreak in February this year (Daily Star).
With Dele being one of the few Tottenham attackers not to pick up an injury before football was suspended in March, this suspension raises a few questions for Jose Mourinho.
We believe that the Special One may push Tanguy Ndombele into a more advanced position in a three-man midfielder when football resumes.
Harry Winks and Giovani Lo Celso line up behind the Frenchman as cover, while Lucas Moura, Heung-min Son, and Harry Kane form a three-man attack.
Ben Davies, Eric Dier, Toby Alderweireld, and Serge Aurier make up the defence, with captain Hugo Lloris between the sticks.
