Dele Alli is a doubt for Tottenham’s Premier League match with Everton on Monday after picking up a hamstring injury in training.

The England international, who has a history of such problems, picked up the issue on Saturday. Jose Mourinho does not know if he will be fit for the game.

“Something today in training with Dele Alli,” Mourinho said. “I don’t think it’s big. I don’t really know what it is.

“The bad thing of press conference 48 hours before a game is another training session tomorrow.

“Hamstring, which is something he’s had problems with in the past, even in this season, and is always something that makes the medical department think about it.

“We all think that it’s nothing important. If you ask me in this moment I think he will be available but I don’t know.”

Mourinho feeling down after Thursday’s surrender

Mourinho said he was “destroyed a little bit on the inside” by his side’s lack of fight in Thursday’s loss at Sheffield United.

After the match, he was irate at how VAR disallowed his side an equaliser.

But after two days reflection, Mourinho was still seething at Tottenham’s lack of desire.

“There was a lot in the game. There was a possibility of shortening distances to Champions League positions and being more stable for the Europa League positions,” Mourinho said.

“I believed in the evolution of the team. I thought that by a desire point of view, they put more than us.

“That’s something that disturbs me. It’s something that I feel, I don’t know, that’s my way of being. It’s something that destroys me a little bit on the inside. I think the last thing in football is when you have the feeling you could, you should do more.”
