Tottenham star Dele Alli talks Steven Gerrard, the Premier League and more!

imageTottenham Hotspur star Dele Alli featured in Match of the Day Magazine’s ‘Heroes of the Season’ feature this week, speaking to Matt Ketchell about everything Spurs.

The young star was quick to discuss his debut season, as well as talk about his new found fame and pressure on his shoulders.

“Everyone wants to have their own game and their own style, I think think that’s important.”

He continued: “I watched a few different players growing up and I’m trying to pull in different aspects of the way they played so it makes me a bit different.” 

Alli, who has scored seven Premier League goals this season, has impressed many pundits and players alike, often drawing comparisons to Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard.

“It’s a big privilege to be put in the same category as someone like him.

“He’s definitely the main person I watched growing up, but I have a long way to go to achieve the things he has in the game!”
