The Tottenham fans in the Football Transfer Tavern don’t think that stats tell the whole story here…
The punters in the Football Transfer Tavern are pretty unanimous in their sentiments towards Dele Alli.
He has cemented himself as one of the top English players in the Premier League, and they think he should be a shoe in every time an England fixture comes around.
However, thanks to the team over at Oulala.com – Alli is Puncheon-ing above his weight…
As per Oulala.com, based on stats alone – Jason Puncheon deserves a spot in the England squad over the Tottenham ace based on current form.
On the ball, Puncheon is the clear winner – having made more key passes, chances, and successful take-ons, whilst he has also got a higher pass completion rate and shot accuracy.
Further to that, Oulala.com report that Puncheon also won more tackles – suggesting that his game is more well-rounded than Alli.
Granted, the Tottenham man has 2 goals, whilst Puncheon has failed to find the net thus far – but Puncheon has made 2 more assists than Alli – so their goal involvement is equal.
Who knew! Our landlord always thought Puncheon was a good player – but this good? He had no idea!
The Crystal Palace fans are glad that he is finally getting the credit that he deserves…
Tottenham and Crystal Palace fans – thoughts?
