Key Spurs players Dele Alli, Son & Kane are all set to miss League Cup semis vs Chelsea
- Chelsea face Mauricio Pochettino's side on January 24th.
- Dele Alli is a huge doubt for Tottenham as he limped off the pitch today in a game vs Fulham with a hamstring problem.
- Harry Kane suffered an injury in Spurs' defeat to Manchester United as he is expected to be out until March.
- Heung-Min Son will also miss the clash with The Blues due to international commitments.
Tottenham Hotspur face a major squad crisis ahead of the 2nd leg of the League Cup semifinal against Chelsea, which is scheduled for Thursday, January 24.
Delle Alli is the latest addition to the list of key absentees for the Spurs, as he suffered an injury during today's Premier League fixture against Fulham.
The England international made his way off the pitch limping at the end of the game, as he seemed to be holding his hamstring.
Dele Alli is the third key Spurs player that is about to miss the Chelsea fixture at Stamford Bridge.
Tottenham's key man Harry Kane is out at least until March due to picking up an injury in Spurs' latest 1-0 defeat in the Premier League to Manchester United. The Englishman is expected to miss the second semifinal against Chelsea as well as the first clash with Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League Round of 16.

However, losing Harry Kane is not the only headache for Mauricio Pochettino's team. Heung-Min Son also won't help Spurs in the battle for the League Cup Final next week as he's off to the South Korea national team for the Asian Cup. Taking into consideration the winger's form this season (8 goals in the last 12 Premier League games), that's definitely something to worry about for Tottenham's head coach.
No Kane, no Son... Chelsea's semi-final match with Tottenham could get interesting. https://t.co/u7D4Zumxwc— Nizaar Kinsella (@NizaarKinsella) January 15, 2019
