Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli thinks Mousa Dembele is the most talented player at the club.

Mauricio Pochettino has made the Belgian a regular in his starting XI at White Hart Lane in the last couple of seasons despite Dembele’s bad luck with injuries.

And Alli, who had the choice of players such as Hugo Lloris, Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Toby Alderweireld, selected Dembele as the best player at Tottenham.

“In my opinion, Dembele [is the best],” Alli told Soccer AM. “He’s very good – his feet are unbelievable. He’s so big as well but he just shifts his body so easily. I don’t know how he does it.”

The Englnd international also has Dembele down alongside himself as the top two players for nutmegs at the club.

“I’d have to say myself, or, Mousa Dembele as well,” he said when asked who pulls off nutmegs the best.

“His is different – I do it in the actual training and stuff. He just does it where he’ll call someone out one-on-one and say if you nutmeg someone, there’s a forfeit or something. He’s really good at that.”
