Tottenham boss, Jose Mourinho is expecting Dele Alli to still be at the Premier League club at the close of next month’s transfer window, confirming he is in the squad for this week’s Europa League fixture.

The England midfielder was left out of the past two games due to a loan move to Paris Saint-Germain in recent days. But he will be at North Macedonia for the Europa League third-round qualifying clash against Shkendija on Thursday.

After being subbed at half-time during the opening game of the season against Everton, Alli was not part of the squad for the matches against Lokomotiv Plovdiv or Southampton but he had been due to start against Leyton Orient in the League Cup on Tuesday before the match was called off following a coronavirus outbreak at the League Two club.

Mourinho  who spoke about Alli’s inclusion in the squad for the Shkendija trip, said: “I always told that he will have his opportunities. I always told that it is no problem at all to have him and, like every other player, performances are important.

“He is coming, he has a chance to play and it will be important to play, it will be important for him to perform.”

Alli’s place in the Spurs team has been put under even more threat by the arrival of Gareth Bale on loan from Real Madrid for the remaining part of the season most likely to form an exciting front three alongside Harry Kane and Son Heung-min.

Kane and Son combined for all five of Tottenham’s goals in a 5-2 win at Southampton, to bounce back from a 1-0 home defeat to Everton.
