Mauricio Pochettino has hailed Dele Alli as a ‘unique’ player after his outstanding display in Spurs’ 4-0 win against Watford
Dele Alli turns 21 on Tuesday. It is a moment that, some say, represents a coming of age. On a personal level that may well prove the case for the Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, yet in a sporting sense it already feels he is a fully grown performer, a player with man-size capabilities. For sure there is more to come but Alli is more than succeeding in the here and now.
That is evident to anyone who has watched him this season as game after game, week after week, Alli has displayed a level of skill, drive and intelligence that belies his tender years. And those qualities were on show again at the weekend as Tottenham’s No20 played a key role in his side’s 4-0 triumph against Watford, their 13th victory in their past 16 league matches and an 11th in succession at White Hart Lane, equalling a top-flight record set in 1922.
