PremierLeague-News.Com - Dele Alli's start for Tottenham against Sheffield United is only his third in the Premier League this season after falling out of favour under Jose Mourinho
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Tottenham interim head coach Ryan Mason has stated that he rewarded Dele Alli with a place in his starting XI against Sheffield United following an "excellent" week in training. In and out of the matchday squad for the vast majority of the season under Jose Mourinho, the 25-year-old's start against the Blades is in fact only his third in the Premier League this campaign. Alli isn't the only change Mason has made to his team from last week's Carabao Cup final as Gareth Bale has also come back in after having to make do with a place on the bench at Wembley last Sunday. Having played alongside Alli at Tottenham in the past, Mason knows full well what the attacking midfielder is capable of and is hoping he performs after standing out at Hotspur Way all week.
