Dele Alli set to miss the game against Man United

Dele Alli is due to find out shortly whether he will miss the game against Manchester United on June 19 after he was charged by the FA for discrimination.


Alli appealed the charge and finally after more than three months his appeal will be heard by a three-person independent commission on Wednesday or Thursday.



Alli was charged by the FA with discrimination and bringing the game into disrepute after the 24-year-old midfielder posted a video on his Snapchat account in which he mocked an Asian man amid the COVID-19 outbreak.


If Dele Alli is banned he will miss the first game in which Tottenham will face Manchester United after a three-month break.


The Spurs are currently on the eight position of the Premier League table, but they are just four points behind Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side who are in fifth.



Both teams are fighting to go in the top four as they want to secure a place in the Champions League and this fixture promise us to be intense.


Jose Mourinho will try to outplay his former club but there’s was some momentum building behind the Red Devils as they were unbeaten in 11 consecutive games in all competitions.


However, there are no set sanctions for improper use of social media but, in a not dissimilar case last November, Manchester City's Bernardo Silva was banned for one match and fined £50,000 after an FA commission found he had "unquestionably" brought the game into disrepute with a tweet about team-mate Benjamin Mendy.


If Dele Alli is found guilty he will have to complete a mandatory education course.



However, Alli apologized for his behavior after he deleted the video from his Snapchat.


Tottenham are also waiting to find out the outcome of Eric Dier's FA charge of "improper and/or threatening" behaviour after he climbed into the stands to confront a supporter following the FA Cup defeat to Norwich in March.
