The hint that suggests Dele isn’t seriously injured

Tottenham Hotspur clinched a last minute victory this evening, beating Fulham 2-1 with the latest of headers from academy man Harry Winks.

Spurs were without Harry Kane, Heung Min Son, and Lucas Moura, and boy did it show.

Fernando Llorente, brought in to lead the line, scored a calamitous own goal in the first half, before missing a whole host of chances in the second.

The Spaniards poor performance really highlighted the calibre of player Spurs are missing in Harry Kane, and fans will be dying to get him back as soon as possible.

Despite grabbing all three points, Tottenham did have some more bad news towards the end of the game today, as Dele Alli went down clutching his hamstring.

The midfielder was treated on the side lines for several minutes before walking back to the bench unassisted, eventually being replaced by Georges-Kevin Nkoudou.

Alli then took his place on the bench, rather than exiting down the tunnel as many players would when picking up a bad injury.

The fact that the medical team didn’t want to treat him immediately, and keep the injury warm, suggests that it isn’t a tear or anything too serious.

Hopefully Alli won’t be out for more than a game or two. Fingers crossed.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Tottenham looking alarmingly lightweight at this point, and somewhat fortunate to pick up all three points today. Can Spurs maintain their position and stay in all competitions when they so clearly need a striker for starters. Good performance from Harry Winks and nice to see him get an unlikely winner, but he is neither in the same class or mould of the now departed Dembele, or indeed his predecessor and the genuine article of genius in Luka Modric, I personally believe Spurs need to sign a significant midfield general also who can drive the game from front and back, and no disrespect to young Harry Winks but he’s not there yet! I was also greatly concerned by how poor and ineffectual Eric Lamela was this afternoon, more so when Dele also became injured and had to be replaced in the latter stages. With no Kane, Son or Moura, Spurs options have become increasingly threadbare. Personally speaking I think Tottenham need three players, a genuine striker, a central midfielder, and a fluid two footed winger cable of performing on either flank, just what will Levy bring in? None I fear worryingly looks the most likely outcome, and this will in all probability result in Spurs crashing out of all cup competitions and pose a serious threat to their challenge to stay inside the top four thus ending in yet another season of frustrating disappointment, and who even cares about the whole stadium fiasco at this point?
