Richard Keys has questioned the attitude of Dele Alli after the Tottenham Hotspur midfielder made just his second Premier League start of the season.
The England international was named in Jose Mourinho’s starting eleven for the match against Fulham and repaid his manager with an impressive performance.
Dele can consider himself lucky not to have been awarded the goal after his effort was deemed to be an own goal by Fulham’s Tosin Adarabioyo.
The 24-year-old played the ball wide to Son Heung-min before meeting the South Korean’s low cross, with Adarabioyo getting the last touch before it reached the back of the net.
Speaking before the clash at Craven Cottage, Keys, who was performing his presenting duties for beIN Sports claimed that Dele does not feel he has to work at his game after the early success in his career.
Keys questioned the attitude of Dele and suggested he does not share the same level of professionalism as former Manchester City midfielder Nigel de Jong who was also appearing on the show.
Dele Alli starts a Premier League game for the first time since opening day! @NDJ_Official is convinced the time is right for Alli to prove Jose wrong, although @richardajkeys is questioning the attitude of the midfielder!#beINPL #FULTOT
