Dele Alli looks unlikely to be fit for the start of the Premier League season on Saturday versus Aston Villa, as his hamstring is a problem yet again.
The attacker missed two months last season with a hamstring problem, the latest in a long line of them.
“I don’t know if the club communicate the time but I don’t believe he’s going to be ready for the start of the season,” he said. “It’s the same area. Yes, of course we are worried. He’s still so young. Just 23-years-old and many, many hamstring problems in the last few years.”
Dele scored seven goals with eight assists in around 3,000 minutes last season, a marked step back from his previous two seasons (14 and 16 in about 3,700 minutes and 22 and 13 in approximately 4,000).
