HYS: Should Mauricio Pochettino risk starting Dele Alli against Manchester City?

Tottenham face perhaps the biggest test of their season so far on Monday when Manchester City travel to Wembley looking to increase their unbeaten league run to ten games this season, and Mauricio Pochettino must risk starting Dele Alli on his return from injury.

Alli has been suffering with a hamstring injury and hasn’t played since scoring in the Carabao Cup win over Watford at Stadium MK, where he started his career before signing for Spurs in 2015.

Tottenham struggled in the week against Dutch side PSV Eindhoven, and Alli could be crucial to offering the Lilywhites the link between defence and attack against Pep Guardiola’s City.

The 22-year-old has played six times in all competitions for Spurs this season and contributed with two goals, and he will be keen to return to the starting line up as Tottenham push for a top four place.

So, Tottenham fans, should Pochettino take a risk and throw Alli in from the start? Have your say by voting in the poll below.
