Confirmed: Playmaker omitted as Tottenham ring changes for West Ham clash

By London correspondent Tony Hughes

Delle Alli has been named on the substitute’s bench for Tottenham’s clash against West Ham on Wednesday night.

As revealed by Football Insider on Wednesday morning, the Spurs playmaker is given a breather after starting the last five matches.

Alli suffered ankle problems in the 2-1 win over Swansea and is replaced in central midfield by Ryan Mason, while Nacer Chadli comes in for Heung-Son Min on the flank.
