Dele Alli expected to return to Tottenham fold for Arsenal clash

As per a report from the Telegraph, Spurs are set to be boosted by the return of Dele Alli for the north London derby this weekend.

Spurs downed by Magpies

Mauricio Pochettino's men are set to travel to the Emirates on Sunday evening, hoping for an immediate bounce-back performance.

The capital giants followed their morale-boosting 2-2 draw at champions Manchester City two weeks ago with a shock 1-0 defeat at home to Newcastle yesterday.

Joelinton bagged the only goal of the clash in north London, slotting home at Hugo Lloris' near post just past the half-hour mark.

Alli to return

As per the aforementioned report from the Telegraph, though, Mauricio Pochettino's men are set to be handed a boost in their hopes of getting back on track versus Arsenal this weekend, by a key return on the personnel front.

The player expected to make his comeback for the north London derby is Dele Alli.

Midfielder Alli is yet to feature for Tottenham this season, after picking up a hamstring injury over the summer.

The 23-year-old returned to first-team training last week, but was not risked versus Newcastle.

However, Alli is expected to be back in contention for a starting berth at the Emirates this weekend, in a timely boost for a Spurs side who, despite their rake of attacking stars, desperately struggled to carve out clear-cut chances yesterday evening.
