Dele Alli reportedly left out of Tottenham’s squad to face Chelsea

Tottenham vs Chelsea

The 4th round of the 2020/21 League Cup is set to get underway later today.

The first, and arguably one of the most exciting ties of the round, pits Tottenham against Chelsea.

The Blues have won the competition five times throughout their history, last doing so in 2015.

Meanwhile, Spurs have lifted the League Cup on four occasions with their last triumph coming in 2008.

However, given Jose Mourinho has recently stated he is prioritising the Europa League over the League Cup, it is hard to see the Lilywhites beating Chelsea on Tuesday.

Alli left out again

Ahead of the tie, an update regarding Dele Alli has emerged on Tuesday afternoon.

Alli has, of course, endured something of a rough time at Spurs over the last year or so, with his performances, for the most part, nowhere up to the standard we had become accustomed to seeing.

And after his struggles continued into the current campaign, Jose Mourinho has begun to significantly limit the midfielder’s opportunities, with Alli actually missing out on Spurs last two Premier League matchday squads.

This has, in turn, led to speculation that Alli could depart Tottenham in the near future, with PSG linked recently.

Said speculation will no doubt ramp up even more on Tuesday as well after the Telegraph claimed that the Englishman has been left out of Spurs’ squad to face Chelsea.

With Mourinho expected to rotate against the Blues, you would have thought this game was a great chance for Alli to get some minutes in a competition Mourinho has himself said he isn’t prioritising. However, that, evidently, doesn’t look set to happen now.
