The 22-year-old latest injury increases Spurs’ injury woes, with captain Harry Kane and Brazilian midfielder Lucas Moura already sidelined. Spurs are also missing Heung-min Son who is currently playing at the Asian Cup, while Mousa Dembele has also left for Chinese side Guangzhou R&F this January.
Alli will now miss Tottenham’s Carabao Cup semifinal second leg against Chelsea. He could possibly miss even the final if Tottenham sail through. He will also miss the North London derby against Arsenal and the Champions League first and second leg against Dortmund.
