WATCH: Dele Alli Scores An Absolute Beauty Against Watford
Dele Alli once again got himself on the scoresheet. The Spurs midfielder put the North London side ahead with 13 minutes to go of the first half with an absolutely delightful finish.
I know as Englishmen we have the unfortunate habit of lauding every English footballer that looks good at a young age to be the next saviour and end up putting too much pressure on them but Dele Alli is genuinely world class.

The Tottenham midfielder has only been playing Premier League football for two seasons but the former MK Dons player already easily looks like one of the best talents in the league.
Under Mauricio Pochettino he has helped Spurs become easily one of the best teams in England and whilst the manager claimed Harry Kane was his Lionel Messi it seems that Alli might actually be more important.
He kicked off the sporting weekend with the Premier League's first goal of the day, curling the ball beyond former Spurs goalie Heurelho Gomes:

Just moments later Watford were sucker punched as Eric Dier scored just his second goal of the season for Spurs, to go along with the two for England, as the White Hart Lane side looked to cut Chelsea's advantage back down to four points.
Son made it 3-0 with just minutes left of the half to bury the Hornets and kill the game off before half time.
Alli's form has been incredible this season and he is the league's top scorer in 2017. In the week the 20 year old sparked Tottenham's comeback against Swansea, scoring a late equaliser before the team went on to win 3-1.
The Spurs midfielder has scored 16 goals in the league this season and it's no wonder Real Madrid have been linked with him.
Just how good can Alli be?
