Dele Alli reportedly left out of Tottenham’s squad to face Chelsea

Tottenham vs Chelsea

The 4th round of the 2020/21 League Cup is set to get underway later today.

The first, and arguably one of the most exciting ties of the round, pits Tottenham against Chelsea.

The Blues have won the competition five times throughout their history, last doing so in 2015.

Meanwhile, Spurs have lifted the League Cup on four occasions, with their last triumph in 2008.

However, given the fact that Jose Mourinho recently stated that he is prioritising the Europa League over the League Cup, it is hard to foresee the Lilywhites beating Chelsea on Tuesday.

Check out 101’s betting tips for the clash below:

Alli left out again

Ahead of tonight’s tie, an update regarding Dele Alli has emerged on Tuesday afternoon.

Alli has, of course, endured a rather rough time at Spurs over the last year or so, with his performances, for the most part, nowhere near the standard which fans had become accustomed to.

With his struggles having continued into the new campaign, meanwhile, Jose Mourinho has begun to significantly limit the midfielder’s opportunities. Alli has actually missed out on a spot in Spurs’ last two Premier League matchday squads.

This, in turn, has even led to speculation that he could depart Tottenham in the near future, with PSG recently linked.

And such speculation is no doubt set to ramp up even further on Tuesday, after the Telegraph revealed that the Englishman has been left out of Spurs’ squad to face Chelsea.

With Mourinho expected to rotate against the Blues, tonight’s clash appeared a perfect chance for Alli to get some minutes under his belt, in a competition which Mourinho himself assured he isn’t prioritising.

However, this, evidently, does not appear to be the case:
