Depth key according to Dele

Posted on 31 December 2015  - 16:11

Dele Alli believes the versatility of our players has really worked to our advantage this season.


The England international has operated in a handful of positions including defensive midfield, central attacking midfield and out on the left in the first half of the campaign as we’ve played our way into the upper reaches of the table with an exciting brand of football under Mauricio Pochettino.

The likes of Mousa Dembele, Ryan Mason and Eric Dier have also shown that they can more than hold their own in different areas of the pitch and that’s something Dele believes is vital if we’re to maintain our momentum heading into 2016.

“We’re a really good side with really good depth and I think that’s showed in the last couple of games,” said the 19-year-old, who has chipped in with four Premier League goals since stepping up from MK Dons earlier in the year.

“All the players are happy to move around and work for the team. We’re not really fixed into one position, especially the three behind Harry Kane up front, and it’s working really well at the moment.

“We need to carry it on into the New Year now. We want to win every game the same amount and, no matter who it’s against, the end result is the same with three points up for grabs so we’re going to try our best to win each game as it comes.”
