Tottenham overcame Fulham in dramatic fashion on Sunday as midfielder Harry Winks popped up with a header in stoppage time to win the game for Spurs. However, the win was bittersweet for the North Londoners as Dele Alli was withdrawn from the game with a left hamstring problem.
The England midfielder contested a ball with Ryan Sessegnon late in the game and suddenly went down clutching his hamstring. Tottenham have confirmed today that scans have revealed that the 22-year-old has strained his hamstring and is expected to be out until March.
This comes as devastating news for Tottenham as they are currently also missing Harry Kane who is out with an ankle injury and Heung-Min Son who is with South Korea at the Asia Cup. The injury to Alli means that Spurs will go into a crucial run of fixtures starting with the second leg of the Carabao Cup semifinal against Chelsea, without their three most potent goalscorers.
Spurs fans will be hoping this news convinces Daniel Levy to take a few risks in the January transfer window.
