Tottenham Hotspur need the Dele Alli of old for 2019/2020

Tottenham Hotspur have had a number of standout performers this season, but one man who has disappointed slightly is Dele Alli.

The former MK Dons youngster has struggled for consistency in 2018/19, with injury having limited him to just 29 appearances so far.

Where Harry Kane, Heung-min Son and Christian Eriksen have all had great campaigns, Alli has arguably been the weakest of Tottenham’s attacking quartet.

Despite his injury problems, one might have expected a better return than just seven goals and five assists in those 29 appearances.

Since moving to the Premier League in 2015, Alli has established himself as one of the division’s best attacking midfielders.

 

His record is nothing short of fantastic; in 175 appearances for Tottenham, he has scored 53 goals and assisted 46.

He scooped the PFA Young Player of the Year award in each of his first two seasons, but has not been able to recapture the same form in 2018/19.

Tottenham will hope Alli can return to something near his best in 2019/20, with optimism sure to be high with the new stadium and likely incomings in the transfer window.

He is highly unlikely to be sold by Spurs, and he’ll be sticking around to try and help Mauricio Pochettino claim his first trophy.
