Mauricio Pochettino hopeful Dele Alli can feature for Spurs vs Man City

Mauricio Pochettino is hopeful Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli will return for Monday’s Premier League clash with leaders Manchester City.

Alli has been sidelined with a hamstring injury since Tottenham’s Carabao Cup win over Watford on September 26.

Fifth-placed Tottenham could go above City with a fifth successive league victory and the possible return of Alli would be a boost against Pep Guardiola’s in-form side.
