Stats show Alli was deserving of London Football Award

Dele Alli has enjoyed quite the rise in recent years and the next 18 months of his career will be particularly crucial, as he aims to win honours with Tottenham Hotspur and establish himself as a regular starter for England ahead of the 2018 World Cup.

The PFA Young Player of the Year for last season endured a difficult start to the current campaign but has swiftly fought back to display his best form, with his performances helping Spurs in their ambition to land Champions League football again next season.

Last night, Alli was rewarded for his fine displays by being crowned 2017 Young Player of the Year at the London Football awards and his stats show exactly why he beat off his rivals contenders in the running for the gong.

In 25 games this season, Alli boasts an impressive 12 goals from 27 shots on target, giving him an excellent conversion rate, whilst he’s also provided 32 chances to his team-mates and has added two assists to his record.
