Tottenham extended their winning run to two wins from two games on Saturday when they put three past Fulham at Wembley. Away from the gals in the 3-1 win, there was a lovely no-look backheel from Dele Alli that found the overlapping Ben Davies beautifully.

The lovely pass from Dele that kept the attack moving on Saturday may not have led to anything but it’s provided a reminder of what Dele Alli is capable of. The 22-year-old has shown on more than a few occasions that he can win a match on his own and the trickery and flair that he has in is boots are enough to make even the best of defenders look silly when he’s on top form.
Last season a lot of supporters were slightly disappointed by Dele’s returns, despite the fact he still managed to bag himself nine goals and 11 assists in the Premier League. The fans had just become used to seeing him score more often after he netted an incredible 18 goals and nine assists the season before. This year, Dele will be keen to better that and one of his targets will have to be hitting double figures for both goals and assists.

The fans will be keen to see more of this from Dele as he aims to put his name on the scoresheet more often this season.
