Allis Spurs days could be numbered after Nunos new midfield works vs Villa

Dele Alli's days at Tottenham could be numbered after Nuno Espirito Santo appears to have stumbled upon the winning formula against Aston Villa.

Tottenham ended their three-match winless run with a 2-1 victory against Aston Villa on Sunday afternoon.

However, there was no room in the middle of the park for Dele Alli as Nuno opted for Oliver Skipp and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, with Tanguy Ndombele as the most advanced of the midfield trio.

Alli had started alongside Hojbjerg and Ndombele as Spurs were torn apart by Arsenal last weekend.

And Skipp's performance could spell an end to Alli's Tottenham career.

Alli was hauled off at half-time during the North London derby: "Last weekend I am sure the fans felt it a lot, but believe me the players felt it a lot more. We were devastated.

"For me personally being subbed at half time as well, a couple of sleepless nights, but we know what we have to do," said after the defeat.

However, he continued: "It’s a process, and we believe in it."

Nuno has been reintroduced into the first-team fold after a season in the wilderness under Jose Mourinho.

Alli had been reportedly left furious he wasn't allowed to join PSG last January.
