Antonio Conte Will Give Dele Alli Chance To Star Again At Tottenham

Posted by

Dele Alli has been guaranteed a chance to rebuild his Tottenham career by Antonio Conte. Conte has seen firsthand how good Alli can be, as he scored two goals in the 2016/17 Premier League season, when Spurs broke Chelsea’s 13-game winning streak and went on to win the title.

Alli’s performance cemented his reputation as one of Europe’s top young players, but his career has subsequently slowed, and both Jose Mourinho and Nuno Espirito Santo have dropped him from their strongest lineups. Conte’s arrival this week, though, could provide an opportunity for the 25-year-old, as well as other periphery players like Harry Winks, to make their case.

Conte said ahead of his first Premier League game in charge at Everton on Sunday: “I remember very well when we played against Tottenham in the past, specifically one game when we lost after 13 wins in a row and Dele scored twice. But this is the past. Now is there is a present and for sure Dele is a player that has great potential, physically he is strong and very good.

“For sure I give him the possibility to show he has talent, at the same time when I pick the starting XI I do it because I think they can bring the team to win, the same when I make changes during the game.
