Dele Ali has not been in the lineup nor made appearances for Spurs since their 3-0 defeat to their North London rivals and now there are reports saying that he’s been left out of the squad for today’s feature against Sean Dyche side.
His absence which isn’t due to injury or ban of any sort has raised fresh concerns over his future at the club. The 25-year-old was also left out of Sunday’s London derby defeat to West Ham, where Spurs also lost 1-0, but the midfielder was expected to play some part in the midweek cup contest. However, according to MailOnline, Alli has not traveled with the squad for the Carabao Cup game at Turf Moor against Sean Dyche’s side.
The England international started the first six Premier League games for Nuno Espirito’s side and he even scored the winner against Wolves back in August. But since the team’s disappointing display against Arsenal where he was subbed off at halftime, he has yet to make any appearances.
After 2 back to back defeats, Nuno will be under pressure to prove that he is the right man to get the club back on track as he faces Manchester United on Saturday.
