Dele Alli in line for shock Tottenham recall in FA Cup clash with Everton after clear-the-air talks with Jose Mourinho

JOSE MOURINHO is eyeing a double D as he aims to get his paws on another cup.

The Tottenham boss is set to recall Dele and Dier for tonight’s FA Cup fifth-round tie at Everton.

Midfielder Dele could feature for the first time since last month’s 5-0 third-round win at Marine, after recovering from a calf injury and having clear-the-air talks with Mourinho.

Defender Eric Dier is likely to return after being benched for Sunday’s 2-0 Prem victory over West Brom, Mourinho said: “I believe players have moments.

"They can be very good, they can be strong personalities, they can be experienced, they can cope with a mistake.

“But in the end, players feel these little moments of confidence, of crisis.


“Recently, our team has made little, important mistakes that are punished in terms of our results.

"And Eric was there, he was one of them. They feel it.

“Confidence drops a little bit. But he is a great personality, a team guy — a guy that I trust and he will soon be back to normality.”

Dele spoke with his boss when a move to Paris Saint-Germain and a reunion with ex-Spurs chief Mauricio Pochettino did not materialise — and may feature tonight.

Mourinho added: “What’s changed? He is available and not injured. He is happy to be training and we’re happy to have him back.”
