Tottenham star Alli should be fit for Liverpool clash - Southgate

Gareth Southgate has confirmed Tottenham Hotspur star Dele Alli will miss England's friendly clash against Switzerland on Tuesday.

But the Three Lions boss believes Alli will be fit for Saturday's huge clash against Liverpool.

"Alli has just had a minor strain and should be fine for his club at the weekend I would think, but Tuesday's game will come too quickly," Southgate said in his pre-match press conference.

Asked about Alli's contribution on the pitch, Southgate added: "I thought his performance was good, in terms of his retention of the ball I thought he was improved in that area, his work without the ball has been good over the last six months with us.

"He makes critical forward runs, like everybody else we learned a lot from the game."
