Tottenham Hotspur will host Leicester City this weekend in a Premier League clash but Spurs will be without a star player.
Dele Alli has been struggling with a hamstring injury and manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed that the forward would not be fit to face the Foxes at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday (4pm).
The England international has not featured since the 3-1 defeat at Sheffield United at the beginning of the month.
It had been hoped he might return against Leicester but, according to Mourinho, that will not be the case.
Meanwhile, Tottenham will again allow Serge Aurier to decide whether he is involved.
The right-back played against Newcastle on Wednesday just 48 hours after his brother was killed, but he is currently back in France with family.
“Let’s see, let’s wait. If he comes back tonight to train tomorrow morning he will be, I don’t know, he will be available,” Mourinho said.
“He did it in very difficult circumstances against Newcastle. Now he goes to France, to see family, comes back.
“Let’s see. It’ll be always Serge’s decision, it’ll be him opening his heart and let us understand his conditions.”
