Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho responds to Dele Alli transfer speculation
Sundays early Premier League clash pitted Tottenham against Southampton.
Both outfits headed into the tie in search of their first league victories of the season after 1-0 losses on the opening weekend.
It would be Southampton who opened the scoring on Sunday through Danny Ings 32 minutes in.
Heung-Mins Son would then level things up in first-half injury time, bringing an end to a pretty even opening 45.
The second half, however, very much belonged to Tottenham.
The South Korean fired Spurs into the lead two minutes after the break, before adding another two in the 64th and 73rd minute.
Harry Kane, who had assisted all four of Sons goals, then finally got on the scoresheet eight minutes from time.
Ings would add a second from the penalty spot in the 90th minute, but it was little more than a consolation goal.
After his sides hammering of Southampton, Jose Mourinho spoke to the media on Sunday afternoon.
The veteran boss was drawn on a number of topics during the presser, one of which was Dele Alli.
After being hooked at half-time vs Everton on the opening weekend, Alli has now been omitted from the north Londoners last two matchday squads including on Sunday.
Allis absence has coincided with reports that French powerhouse PSG are interested in the midfielder.
As a result, Mourinho was inevitably asked if Alli could indeed be on his way out of the club, to which the Tottenham boss stated:
I’m not responsible for the market. I don’t know how to answer your question in relation to that. The only thing I can say is that I left eight players behind. They stayed and trained this morning because they are a big group and Dele is amongst these players.
You could see our team.
I cannot start with all of them and I cannot have a bench without defenders or midfielders. In the same way the squad is a puzzle, the bench is also a little puzzle.
So to have on the bench Toby and Serge, and Moussa and Gio, and Lamela, and Bergwijn. I cannot have on the bench four wingers or three wingers and a No 10, and then no defenders. Everything is a puzzle so in these matches that he stayed out, probably Tuesday he will play and others he will stay out.
