Jamie O'Hara says Spurs midfielder Dele Alli should play like he did against Wolves every week

Former Spurs and Wolves man, Jamie O’Hara, says while he was impressed with Dele Alli yesterday, the midfielder should be delivering those performances regularly.

But under Ryan Mason, Alli has been given his chance to shine again. And it’s safe to say Alli is repaying Mason’s faith with some of his performances, including the one against Wolves yesterday.

However, speaking to Talksport today, O’Hara says he expects those performances from Alli, such is his quality.

“He was the Dele Alli we sort of love to watch play. And I did really like watching him…but I expect that from him. He should be playing like that because he’s a top player and has top talent,” O’Hara said.

“It was good to see him playing well though. It’s probably too late for him to make a run at the England squad for the Euros. But it’s nice to see some Spurs players coming back into some sort of form.”

Alli will be keen to put the Mourinho era behind him and firmly crack on with getting his career fully back on track. After exploding onto the scene following his move from MK Dons, Alli has gone a bit stale.

However, Mason seems to have faith in his man and he’ll be hoping for a big end to the season before the new manager comes in.

And that’s the reality of how his situation with Spurs had become. It’s like the club have signed a new player, such was how far away from his best he was under Mourinho.

It’s great to see, though. Alli is a quality operator and a capable player at the very top level. If he can carry on this current run of form into next season, then it can only be of benefit to Spurs and their new coach.
