3 – Dele Alli
The emergence of Alli has been hugely instrumental in Tottenham’s success so far this season. The 19-year-old has proven he can create and score goals – whilst also demonstrating good defensive abilities. 5 goals and 3 assists in his debut Premier League season is a pretty impressive tally for a teenage central midfielder, and it’s only January. When Alli arrived from MK Dons in the summer, nobody could have anticipated the impact he would have in his first six months at the club. Alli has qualities that very few players can offer, effectiveness in every area of the pitch. He might just be the secret weapon in Tottenham’s title hunt.
