Soccer-Alli ruled out for Tottenham's Barcelona clash

HUDDERSFIELD, England, Sept 29 (Reuters) - Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli has been ruled out for Wednesday’s Champions League group-stage match with Barcelona at Wembley, Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino said on Saturday.

Alli, who suffered a hamstring injury earlier this month, missed the 2-0 victory at Huddersfield and Pochettino said there was no chance of the England international facing the Spanish side.

Pochettino said it was too early to evaluate the injuries to Jan Vertonghen and Mousa Dembele who were both substituted at half-time in the win at the John Smiths Stadium.

“It is not clear if they are muscle (injuries) or knocks,” said the Spurs manager. (Reporting by Simon Evans; editing by Clare Fallon)
