The 21-year-old has a hamstring injury, short-circuiting a fine return to form which saw him score twice against Real Madrid at midweek.
Dele has three Premier League goals this season and four more in other competitions, and has two assists in his last four caps for England. He has two goals in 22 caps all-time.
