Tottenham have confirmed that Dele Alli faces over a month out after suffering a hamstring strain in Sunday’s win over Fulham.
Spurs say the england international, who was forced off before Harry Winks’ last minute winner at Craven cottage won't come to training till early March.
It is the newest blow for Mauricio Pochettino, who is already while not star striker Harry Kane till March due to an ankle injury, and has Son Heung-Min away on international duty with South Korea.
Alli's injury deepens Spurs’ midfield injury crisis, with Moussa Sissoko and Victor Wanyama each out, whereas Belgian midfielder Moussa Dembele was sold earlier this month.
Spurs will be without Alli for the second leg of the carabao Cup semi-final against Chelsea on Thursday, as well as several league games, the fa Cup clash with Crystal Palace and also the 1st leg of their Champions League tie against Borussia Dortmund.
Alli faces a race against time to be back for the North London derby against Arsenal and the second leg of the Dortmund fixture, which are scheduled for 2 and 5 March respectively.
