Alli admits one area of his game needs improvement

Dele Alli hasn’t managed to build upon his magnificent debut campaign for Tottenham Hotspur last season with continued fine performances this term, as the PFA Young Player of the Year has struggled to find consistency.

Under pressure to perform to a higher standard, Dele Alli has been a regular for the Lilywhites this season and has only missed one game in the Premier League, the 1-1 draw with Arsenal. However, he has been guilty of wasting decent opportunities in front of goal.

The England international admitted it’s an area of goal he needs to improve, telling the club’s official website:

“I hope to find some finishing form and start getting a few more goals. I need to beat my target from last season, so I have to make sure I put them away now.”

With Spurs trailing the top-four heading into Christmas and suffering an early exit from the Champions League, Mauricio Pochettino’s side have plenty of areas where they need to improve in the New Year if they are to push towards success.
