Dele Alli will travel to Macedonia with a gentle warning from Jose Mourinho that the onus is on the player to force his way into the team and not on the manager hand out favours.
Alli has not appeared since he was hooked at half-time in the opening game of the season against Everton, and Gareth Bale's return on loan from Real Madrid is set to increase the competition for places at Spurs.
Mourinho said: 'There is a tendency now, that when a player performs or doesn't perform, to give responsibility to the coaches, some because they gave him the right love, some because they gave him the right stick.

'I always feel that 99 per cent of the responsibility is the player. I have one per cent. Me and my staff and the people that works with the players every day, we have one per cent of the responsibility. It is 99 per cent that belongs to them.'
Alli, not even been on the bench for Tottenham's last two games, was set to start against Leyton Orient in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday but the game was called off when the League Two side were hit by several positive Covid tests.
Mourinho will not merely transpose his team to face Orient onto Thursday night's Europa League third qualifying round tie against Shkendija.
Dele Alli left OUT of Tottenham squad for trip to Southampton

Sportsmail reported this week how Tottenham had considered using Alli as a potential sweetener in their move to bring Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale back to the club.
His team in Skopje is expected to be stronger than the team he intended to play at Brisbane Road. Alli, however, will be involved.
'Since Dele arrived from MK Dons he's had ups and downs,' said Mourinho.
'Fabulous periods and also other periods when he disappears from the top level of performances.
'When this lack of consistency happens in a player it is normal that when you are in great form you play because you deserve to and when you are not in a good moment you don't play.
'Players have to prove on the pitch how good they are in a specific moment. He is selected: no decision yet about starting or on the bench, but he has the chance to play and if he is on the pitch for one minute or 90 he has to show us. Pure and simple.'
Reports claim PSG are the favourites to be Alli's next club, though the two sides are only discussing a loan move rather than a permanent deal.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is thought to prefer a loan move, in the knowledge that Alli's value has suffered through a combination of poor form and a transfer market ravaged by the coronavirus pandemic.
PSG have a good relationship with Spurs having sold Lucas Moura and Serge Aurier to the Premier League side in recent years and that could help them to clinch a deal before the transfer deadline on October 5.
Alli still has four years left on the contract extension he signed back in 2018 and Spurs are hopeful a loan move will help him to recapture his best form.
New recruits Bale and Sergio Reguilon will not travel to the game as they continue to adjust to Tottenham and work on their fitness.
