Spurs make short 163-mile flight to Manchester along with Dele Alli despite broken hand but no Kane in sight

TOTTENHAM star Dele Alli was in the travelling party that boarded their plane to Manchester for their mouthwatering Champions League clash against City.

But there was no sight of Harry Kane, who is still recuperating from his ankle injury that could require surgery to prevent further damage.

The England star injured himself when challenging Fabian Delph during the first leg, that Spurs won 1-0.

Alli also had to come off the field after breaking a bone in his hand.

But Alli boarded the plane with the rest of his team-mates for the second leg at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday night.

The squad and coaches decided to travel the 163 miles by air, boarding a plane at Stansted Airport in Essex.


It is planned for them to train at the Etihad on Tuesday evening before the pre-match press conference.

And Spurs may have been handed a cheeky boost to their hopes of seeing off Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola has confirmed Fernandinho is an injury doubt for the quarter-final clash.

Fernandinho,33, missed Sunday's Premier League clash with Crystal Palace – with Guardiola unsure of his status for Wednesday evening.
