Jack Grealish reacts on Instagram as Tottenham player shines against Wolves
Dele Alli continued his resurgent form under Nuno Espirito Santo as he provided the difference during Tottenham’s 1-0 win over Wolves. The England ace won, and then scored a penalty early on. It was the only goal of the game, and Jack Grealish praised the Tottenham ace Dele on Instagram.
Dele, 25, has been a regular for Nuno and Tottenham in pre-season – with many of the belief he is looking fitter and leaner. The 37-time England star is being used as a box-to-box midfielder alongside Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Oliver Skipp. It worked against Manchester City, and now at Wolves.
Despite being away from home, Spurs nabbed all three points as Dele won and scored a penalty – going down under the challenge of Jose Sa. Spurs did have to ride their luck at times, with Adama Traore’s effort saved by Hugo Lloris when one on one. Dele posted on Instagram after the win.
Dele shines: Grealish, Hart and others praise Tottenham star
With Harry Kane continually being linked with a move to Manchester City, Tottenham’s other players are under pressure to cover the England skipper. Replace the massive quality he provides. If Spurs are able to do that, they need the likes of Son Heung-min and Dele Alli firing at their brilliant best.
In 2016-17, he produced 35 goal involvements – scoring 22 and creating 13. In 2017-18, 31 – scoring 14 and creating 17. While he might not replicate those enormous numbers, he needs to replicate his importance in the side. So far this season, he is certainly showing that.
Despite losing to Dele and Tottenham in the opening game of the season, Grealish is clearly happy to see Dele impressing. Joe Hart and Steven Bergwijn were also among those to praise the £100,000-a-week (Spotrac) ace.
