Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed the tenure of Dele Alli’s absence due to his hamstring injury.
The English midfielder picked up a hamstring injury in the match against Fulham after he scored a goal to bring his side back into the match.
Tottenham have confirmed that their midfield star Dele Alli has to remain on the sidelines for six weeks after the player picked up a hamstring injury in the match against Fulham, which Spurs won by 2-1 in dramatic fashion. After an own goal from Fernando Llorente saw the Lilywhites take the lead in the first half, the north Londoners came back strongly and got on level terms with Alli’s striker finding the back of the net in the second half. Harry Winks scored the winner in the injury time as he headed home from close range from literally the last kick of the game and secured very valuable three points for his side.
Alli, however, had to be withdrawn as he suffered a hamstring injury. Alli’s injury could not have come at a time worse than this when Spurs have already been suffering from the absence of their talisman Harry Kane, who has been sidelined for a month with a knee injury he picked up in the match against Manchester United.
The news has been confirmed by the north London club in a statement on their official Twitter account, which read, “Following scans and clinical assessment, we can confirm that Dele Alli has suffered a hamstring strain, sustained during Sunday’s match. Dele will now undergo a period of rehabilitation with our medical staff, with the expectation of returning to returning in early March.”
