The England international appears to have recovered from his hamstring injury
Dele Alli looks set to hand Spurs a much-needed boost by being available for this weekend’s trip to Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League.
Tottenham Hotspur head to the Amex Stadium following a three-match losing run, after defeats to Watford, Liverpool and Inter Milan this month.
Alli missed the home clash with Liverpool and the Champions League Group B opener in Italy with a hamstring problem, but trained with the squad today.
He is set to be assessed again on Friday, yet it appears likely he will be fit and ready for selection if boss Mauricio Pochettino picks him.
Moussa Sissoko is also injury free after returning to full training this week and he will be pushing for a spot in the matchday squad at Brighton.
Hugo Lloris remains sidelined, however, with a thigh problem and will not feature in Saturday’s evening (5.30pm) kick-off against Chris Hughton’s team.
