Dele Alli is an injury doubt for Gareth Southgate after England’s 5-0 win over Czech Republic in the qualifying campaign for Euro 2020.
He could miss the follow up game away against Montenegro with Tottenham Hotspur set to take on Liverpool at Anfield at the weekend once the Premier League resumes after the international break.
Eric Dier has already been ruled out of contention for England’s next game while Serge Aurier was only able to play 30 minutes in Ivory Coast’s Africa Cup of Nations win over Rwanda on Saturday.
Sky Sports report that Southgate is waiting to assess Dele, and any problems that could cause question marks over his involvement against Liverpool will not be welcome at Hotspur Way.
The midfielder continues to develop under Mauricio Pochettino having first announced himself as a goal threat for Spurs since joining the club from MK Dons.
He has been used in deeper roles by his manager over the past two seasons to also showcase his abilities outside the final third as the club seek to replace Mousa Dembele’s influence in midfield.
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson is also a doubt for the Montenegro match.
