Mourinho hoping Alli returns for Spurs vs Southampton in FA Cup replay

Alli was hurt after a reckless tackle by Sterling in Sunday’s 2-0 win over Manchester City and seemed to have little chance of making Wednesday’s replay.

But manager Jose Mourinho said on Tuesday: “It’s not as bad (as was feared) so there is a chance of him playing tomorrow. Let’s wait and see, but there is a chance.”

Sterling was booked by referee Mike Dean for the foul, and the VAR decided against upgrading the decision to a red card on review — to the anger of Spurs boss Jose Mourinho.
