Alli double sends Mourinho's Tottenham up to fifth

Alli double sends Mourinho's Tottenham up to fifth

It's three straight wins - two in the league and one in the Champions League - for Mourinho since taking over from Mauricio Pochettino last week and much of that is down to Alli. "I think this is the best position for him".

Starting with the football itself, Mourinho's first three matches have thrown up scorelines more commonly associated with a manager such as Kevin Keegan.

Despite watching them win their first back-to-back league games since April, it was not all good news for Mourinho, though, as his side conceded late goals for the second week running to take the gloss off a commanding display.

Mourinho said pushing him further up the pitch, a position he played in the early days under the Argentine, has been key.

"We played well for long period of the games, we had a few scary moments but I think the fans enjoyed".

"The best thing that can happen to a coach is when you don't have to talk about a player because everyone is talking, everybody (the media), fans, everybody is talking about him and he's talking about the right thing. reasons".

Trump has already forced Mexico's hand on immigration after threatening to impose tariffs on Mexican exports to the United States. Lopez Obrador was elected in 2018 on a "strategy for peace" and promises of amnesty to non-violent cartel members.


Dele Alli once again produced a fantastic performance as Spurs earned all three points to move to fifth in the table, just six points behind fourth-placed Chelsea. "I am pleased with the victory, the points, with the flair, with the quality, with the goals, with some dynamics that we trained, even defensively with some principals that we are working".

Therefore, Real Madrid apparently tried to offer the Portuguese 12 million euros to stop him going to Spurs and making sure he would be free for when they needed him.

Alli and Kane combined to create Spurs' first chance after an unsettled start as Son scampered clear on goal, but the South Korean dragged his shot just wide.

Spurs then clicked into gear as Kane's fiercely struck near-post shot was parried by Aaron Ramsdale, before Davinson Sanchez fired home only to be penalised for handling the ball as he controlled Sissoko's shot.

The Mourinho impact has been instant, with Alli rewarding his manager's faith by finding the net three times in three games.

A first clean sheet of his reign would have rounded off a flawless day for Mourinho, but the Spurs defence was breached 17 minutes from time when set-piece specialist Wilson curled in a brilliant free-kick.
