Supporters of Tottenham Hotspur have reacted to a report which has emerged regarding the fitness of English midfielder Dele Alli.
According to a recent report by the Evening Standard, Alli is a doubt for Spurs’ clash with Championship side Wycombe Wanderers on Monday.
The claim comes after Jose Mourinho revealed in his pre-match press conference that the player is struggling with a tendon injury.
During Tottenham’s recent 3-1 win against Sheffield United, the 24-year-old middleman was not included in the squad (as per Transfermarkt).
However, Mourinho also claimed this was due to the injury issue he has.
This report was relayed to Tottenham fans on Twitter by Last Word On Spurs and it had lots of them talking.
So, what did these Spurs fans have to say after the report on Dele Alli’s fitness emerged?
“Can’t believe it’s taken this long too come up with these lies”
“*why he didn’t bother to have him sit on the bench”
While Alli was not in the squad to face the Blades, he has not gotten Premier League minutes under his belt since making a short cameo in the 2-1 defeat against Liverpool in mid-December.
The Englishman’s lack of action for Tottenham comes amongst links between the player and French club Paris Saint-Germain (via 90min).
Do you think Dele Alli will leave Spurs in the current transfer window?
No, he'll be staying
Yes, he's be going
“Saving himself for PSG”
So far this season, the former MK Dons man has made just four appearances for Tottenham in the Premier League, in which he has neither scored nor assisted a goal (per WhoScored).
Over those outings, he has earned a weak 6.11/10 average rating, making him the worst-performing player in Mourinho’s squad.
“this saga is too boring”
As can be seen in these responses from Spurs fans, there was plenty of speculation from them after the claim on the midfielder’s fitness emerged.
