Dele Alli stars at Wembley... but only for MTV Europe Music Awards as Tottenham midfielder continues battle to be fit for derby clash with Arsenal
It's a big week coming up for Dele Alli with the Tottenham Hotspur midfielder hoping to be fit for the Saturday lunchtime kick off at Arsenal for the north London derby.
The 21-year-old pulled out of the England squad for last Friday's clash with Germany and Tuesday's match with Brazil with a hamstring complaint.
But the good news for Spurs fans is that the midfielder looks far from troubled by his fitness concerns having attended the MTV EMAs on Sunday evening.

Alli was among a number of footballer's present for the awards bash held at Wembley Arena, with Manchester United star Paul Pogba also in attendance.
Dressed in double denim, Alli was sat inbetween '30 seconds to Mars' frontman Jared Leto as well as French singer Petite Meller.
Alli wasn't just there to keep up appearances either as the Spurs star also helped with proceedings, helping present the best artist award to Shawn Mendes.
Gareth Southgate had called up Alli for the two friendlies for the international break, but the midfielder was soon ruled out having already missed Tottenham's recent 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace.
The timing of the injury came as a huge blow for Mauricio Pochettino's side, with Alli having excelled with two goals in Spurs' magnificent 3-1 Champions League victory over Real Madrid.
Indeed Alli's form has attracted attention from Europe's biggest clubs, with Madrid and also Barcelona monitoring his situation at the north London side.
Alli is in the process of changing agents but with a contract at Spurs until 2022, the club will not sell without at least commanding a premium fee.
