Tottenham have booked a Carabao Cup quarter-final tie away at Arsenal after beating West Ham on Wednesday night and there were plenty of positives for manager Mauricio Pochettino to reflect on.
Spurs recorded a 3-1 away victory against West Ham in the cup, where fringe players such as Juan Foyth and Fernando Llorente took the limelight by remidning everyone of their talents.
Meanwhile, attacker Heung-Min Son managed to end his goal drought too by netting twice and will hope to get back to his best now.
But silent assassin Dele Alli earned his first start since returning from a hamstring injury and will surely be the biggest positive that Pochettino can take from the match.
The attacking midfielder is often overlooked and underrated in the Spurs side, but he assisted both of Son’s goals to prove his importance.
His return to the side is a massive boost for the North London club and he looks ready to go back in for Premier League action.
Alli, 21, will play a key role for Pochettino’s side this season if he remains fit and has proven in recent years he’s a consistent contributer in front of goal.
