Alli sends pointed message amid rumours he’s been dropped from Spurs squad again

Dele Alli has posted a message on Twitter reminiscing about better times amid speculation he will once again be left out of Tottenham's latest squad.

Spurs take on Burnley at Turf Moor on Monday night looking for a victory which would move them up to fifth place in the table.

They look set to do so without Alli, however, with The Athletic reporting that the midfielder did not travel north with the team on Sunday.

He is not believed to be injured, and it appears he has once again simply been snubbed by manager Jose Mourinho for performance reasons.

On Sunday evening the official Tottenham account posted a video of Alli scoring a penalty in the same fixture last season, a goal which was his 50th in the Premier League.

Alli shared the video to his account along with the caption: "Good times."

The post suggests that Alli is far from happy with his current situation, and since the opening day of the season he has played just 21 minutes in the Premier League and has failed to start a match.

He has also been left out of both England manager Gareth Southgate's two squads so far in the current campaign, and his career currently looks worryingly to be on a sharp decline.

There were rumours that Alli would make a loan move before the end of the transfer window, with French giants PSG among the clubs said to be interested, but in the end nothing materialised.

It now remains to be seen whether Alli can force his way back into Mourinho's thinking, and his only opportunity to do so may be in the Europa League, where he was brought off the bench on Thursday in Spurs' convincing 3-0 win over LASK.

Last season Alli made 25 Premier League appearances, scoring eight goals, but even that is a far cry from his most successful season, the 2016-17 campaign, when he netted 18 times in 37 league showings.
