Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli has confirmed through his Instagram handle that he will miss tonight’s clash against Everton.

The 24-year-old is currently down with a hamstring injury and hasn’t made the matchday squad.

Alli came off the bench to play the last 19 minutes in Thursday’s 3-1 defeat against Sheffield United but sustained the knock during training on Saturday.

The Tottenham star has had problems with his hamstring in the past, and it also saw him miss some games at the beginning of this season.

Spurs will have to face Everton without one of their star players and it’s a blow on their chances of winning given his creativity and quality.

Alli has featured in 24 league games for the North London giants this term, scoring eight goals and assisting four times.

Tottenham travel to Bournemouth on Thursday before hosting Arsenal on Sunday, and manager Jose Mourinho will hope to have the attacking midfielder back by then.

The Portuguese hopes to lead his side to the Champions League next season, and anything apart from victory against the Toffees tonight will end Spurs’ chances and further deal a blow on their Europa League chances.
