Mousa Dembele; Dele Alli TEAMtalk

England international Dele Alli was joining the group for Tottenham’s training session ahead of their Champions League clash with PSV.

Alli has been struggling with a hamstring injury in recent weeks and was noticeable by his absence for the first part of Spurs’ open training at Hotspur Way.

That seemed to suggest he would miss Tuesday’s vital Wembley clash, but he arrived just as the open session came to an end and looked to be moving well.

Midfielder Victor Wanyama, suffering from a knee injury, trained on his own.

Mousa Dembele is Tottenham’s latest injury absentee and will miss the game against the Eredivisie leaders.

The Belgium midfielder suffered an ankle injury in Saturday’s 3-2 win at Wolves and the extent of the problem is not yet known.

He joins Eric Dier (thigh), Danny Rose (groin), Jan Vertonghen (hamstring) and Victor (knee) in the treatment room, while Hugo Lloris is suspended.

Meanwhile, UEFA will hold a pitch inspection at Wembley on Monday afternoon.

The playing surface at the national stadium was left in a shocking condition after Spurs’ Premier League game against Manchester City on Monday, which came 24 hours after an NFL game.

A ‘specialist pitch expert’ along with the delegate and the referee will take a look at the pitch ahead of PSV’s planned training session at 6pm on Monday evening.
