Tottenham Hotspur are due to lock horns with Premier League leaders Liverpool at the Wembley Stadium this Saturday. The fixture promises to be an entertaining one as both the clubs are genuine contenders for the league title and have started off well.
While Liverpool have won all of their four games and are placed at the top of the league standings, Spurs have lost one and won three so far.
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino will be breathing a huge sigh of relief as Dele Alli is expected to be fit for the upcoming high-profile clash.
Dele suffered a muscle strain while being on national duty for England and the news had put Spurs fans on the edge of their seats.
The Three Lions were defeated 2-1 by Spain and owing to Alli’s injury, Gareth Southgate decided to withdraw him from England squad for the friendly against Switzerland on Tuesday.
Southgate believes that the 22-year-old, who has returned to Spurs for further treatment, should be able to feature against Liverpool this weekend.
Speaking to the pre-match press conference, he said, “Alli has just had a minor strain and should be fine for his club at the weekend I would think, but Tuesday’s game will come too quickly.”
