Tottenham Hotspur could be about to receive a much-needed boost to their side after a couple of disappointing results.
Spurs are currently on a three-match losing streak having suffered defeats to Watford and Liverpool in the Premier League, whilst conceding two goals in the final stages of their Champions League encounter with Inter Milan on Tuesday night.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side will be looking to turn things around quickly and will be preparing for their trip to the south coast on Saturday, where they will meet with Brighton and Hove Albion.
And, according to Ben Dinnery, Tottenham could have the added boost of being able to name Dele Alli in the side for the clash.
Lots of factors to consider, particularly around Champions League. Alli should be close this weekend.

The freelance data injury analyst has stated that the midfielder could be close to making a return for Spurs after missing out on the last two fixtures.
Alli picked up a hamstring injury whilst on international duty with England and was it was originally thought it would be a minor concern.
Tottenham will be pleased to be able to call upon Alli on Saturday evening when they face Brighton if he is available.
The Seagulls will prove to be a tough test after they picked up a late point against Southampton on Monday, whilst having beaten Manchester United at home earlier in the season convincingly.
The former Milton Keynes Dons midfielder has been a huge blow to the way Pochettino’s side plays and fans will be hopeful Dinnery is right and that he has a chance of featuring in the Premier League meeting at the weekend.
