Chris Sutton has made an exciting prediction about Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli on the BT Sport Europa League highlights show – suggesting his efforts against Ludogorets could be the start of a change in fortunes for the playmaker.
Alli, 24, was given just his seventh appearance on Thursday night and the England ace took full advantage. Not only did Alli provide a very unselfish assist for Carlos Vinicius, he also created Lucas Moura’s goal – albeit Vinicius laying on the assist.
The midfielder has managed just two Premier League appearances all season, failing to even make a Premier League squad in Tottenham’s last five league games. However, his display could tempt Jose Mourinho against Chelsea on Sunday.
Asked if he believes Alli’s performance on Thursday night could be a turning point for the under-fire star, Sutton responded by suggesting it could – urging Alli to rediscover the consistency that has gone missing from his game.
