Dele Alli was one of the best players in the Premier League, and maybe even world, last season for Spurs. For a midfielder to score 18 league goals is an unbelievable achievement. He’s been compared to the greatest England midfielders to ever play the game, and it’s clear to see why. He broke records set by greats like Lampard and Gerrard and scored goals like he was a striker.
So, when you compare him to last season its clear to see he isn’t at the top of his game right now. Last season his partnership with Kane was one of the best partnerships in world football, but this season it seems Eriksen has been playing the better football.
Recently, Alli has been linked with a move to clubs like Barcelona and Real Madrid, and with the situation with his agent ongoing its worrying to think his mind is elsewhere. As Tottenham fans, we are the best at spotting when our best players want to leave (it happens enough). And right now, the way he is playing obviously isn’t his best and he isn’t playing with the same confidence and creativity as we’ve seen for the last couple of years.
We’ve just got to hope he will soon return to top form for the remainder of the season.
