Club record for seven up Dele

He might have been under the weather, but Dele Alli certainly made his mark in 45 minutes at Carrow Road - including setting a new Spurs record.

Dele's second-minute strike not only paved the way for a comfortable win but took him to seven goals in the Premier League - a new record mark for a teenager at the club for a Premier League season, toppling Nicky Barmby's six goals in 1992-93.

The England midfielder, 19, was blissfully unaware of that club record mark. "I didn’t know that!" he smiled afterwards. "I’ve still a lot to learn, I’m only 19 and I can’t think of a better place to do that."

Dele was more concerned with another three points as we stretched our unbeaten away run in the Premier League to 11 matches.

Having scored early, Dele was brought down for the penalty slotted home by Harry Kane on the half-hour as we dominated the first half at Carrow Road.

Dele sat out the second half feeling dizzy as the team soaked up Norwich pressure before Harry wrapped it up with our third in the 90th minute.

"We had a game plan and knew if we stuck to that game plan, the chances would come," added Dele. "We had to finish those chances off and thankfully I did just that early in the game.

"We knew Norwich were never going to make it easy for us and we needed to finish it off and thankfully we did with the third goal.

"We have a game plan, we stick to it, we work hard and don’t stop fighting to the end of the game."
