- Tottenham will battle Chelsea in Thursday’s Carabao Cup semi-final second leg clash at Stamford Bridge
- Spurs have now been dealt with a huge injury blow in Dele Alli
- The attacking midfielder suffered a hamstring injury during his side's 2-1 victory at Fulham
Tottenham star Dele Alli suffered a hamstring injury during Sunday’s last-gasp 2-1 win at Fulham and will be waiting to know the duration he will be out on Monday.
The Three Lions star was subbed off at Fulham and Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino admitted that he could be out for a longer duration.
During the encounter at Craven Cottage, Alli netted the equalizer after Fernando Llorente’s own goal gifted the home-side the lead but could only follow proceedings from the bench when Harry Winks headed in the winner in the dying moments of the game.
Already, Spurs are without the pair of the injured Harry Kane and Son Heung-min, who is currently on international duty with South Korea at the Asia Cup.
And now Alli, who previously had hamstring injuries this term, is a major doubt for Thursday’s Carabao Cup semi-final second leg clash at Stamford Bridge.
“You know very well the action. We need to assess him in the next few days.

“The hamstring is a muscle we need to be careful with, but it doesn’t look great. On the pitch, we all agree that when you see him put his hands on his hamstring you feel…it’s not great,” Pochettino was quoted as saying told Daily Mail.
“Unbelievable,” he said. “Our first half was fantastic and we also had a penalty the referee didn’t see. There was a big penalty on (Aleksandar) Mitrovic.
“Second half we controlled the match very well in different ways. We gave a gift with the first goal and the second goal is unbelievable.
“We have a lot of free-kicks and I said to players, ‘Why do we have to put the ball in the box?"
“We lack experience. Calm, stay calm, keep possession, and finish the match.
“We are alive, we continue to fight, the team showed fantastic performance. I can only say well done. But stay smart until the end. A lot of them the first time they play in the Premier League,” the Italian summed up.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Tottenham star Harry Kane suffered a worrying injury during their 0-1 defeat by Manchester United on Sunday at Wembley.
The Three Lion forward collided with Man United’s Phil Jones in the closing moments of the game and found it tough walking at the blast of the final whistle.
