Tottenham v Southampton prediction: Paul Merson

Sky Sports News HQ understands Kane and Spurs are waiting for the swelling to fully subside before assessing the amount of movement in his ankle.

Alli was sent off for a tackle on midfielder Brecht Dejaegere at Wembley as Tottenham were eliminated from the Europa League, leaving the England midfielder feeling "horrible".

Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli insists he will never apologise for his aggressive streak but says he has calmed down this season.

Southampton lost in-form striker Manolo Gabbiadini to injury in the first half but gave a good account of themselves in the second, at the start of which James Ward-Prowse scored from close range. "That's something everyone knows", admitted Pochettino.

Alli has certainly improved in front of goal.

"But all we can do now is be motivated and try to take the games in the same direction and the same way we took before and try to win", the manager was quoted as saying by the club's official site. Spurs find themselves with a firm grip on second position in the Premier League heading into the worldwide break.

Tottenham Hotspur Playing XI: Lloris, Dier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Walker, Wanyama, Dembele, Davies, Eriksen, Alli, Son.

"We have had a few talks and he has been really supportive".

He told the club's official website: "I'm pleased with the performance".

"As soon as Harry got injured, we felt it was important that we all stepped up, did our piece and chipped in with the goals now", said Alli.

It is a remarkable evolution for Alli who spent more of last season playing either as a number 10 or from the left of Pochettino's 4-2-3-1 system.

"I always want more goals, I'm always hungry". "I am happy to play anywhere in this team".

"He'll keep supporting us from off the pitch and we'll just keep trying to carry on and get the points". "It's important the team keep scoring and we keep winning games".

"That didn't happen and that's why the pressure came to us at the end".

Alli's latest strike has taken his tally to 18 goals for his club this season, nearly doubling the 10 he managed last campaign, and he is feeling like an increasingly important member of the squad, both in the dressing room and on the pitch.
