Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli is back in training ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash with Brighton & Hove Albion.

Alli missed Tottenham’s defeats to Liverpool and Inter Milan after picking up a hamstring problem during the international break.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has insisted that he will not risk Alli’s fitness by throwing him straight in against Brighton unless the midfielder is ready.

Spurs fans might have to wait when it comes to Alli’s return, but they are desperate for the 31-time England international to feature against Brighton.

Tottenham started their 2018-19 Premier League campaign with three straight wins, but have now lost their last three matches in all competitions.

The capital outfit led at Inter on Tuesday before losing late on, and there is serious pressure on Pochettino’s side to bounce back this weekend.
