Tottenham Hotspur head coach, Jose Mourinho, has revealed the reason behind benching Dele Alli for this evening’s match against Sheffield United in the Premier League.
Mourinho claimed that he needed pace in his attack against the impressive back five of Sheffield, opting for Lucas Moura, Steven Bergwijn, and Heung-min Son behind Kane.
Dele Alli, who started the match against West Ham nine days ago, was suspended for Tottenham’s return to Premier League football against Man United.
Tanguy Ndombele, Erik Lamela, and Toby Alderweireld are also among the substitutes today, although Mourinho spoke of the importance of a strong bench before the game.
