Liverpool target scores another great goal - watch the video here!

MK Dons

Dele Alli has been tipped to be as good as Steven Gerrard, Wayne Rooney and Michael Owen and he continued to enhance his growing reputation on Saturday.

The 17-year-old, who has been watched by numerous Premier League scouts this season including Liverpool's Barry Hunter, added another superb strike to his collection as MK Dons kept alive their League One play-off hopes with a 2-1 win over Coventry at Sixfields.

His thunderous 25-yard volley set the Milton Keynes club on their way to a precious three points and the talented teenager again earned rave reviews from his manager Karl Robinson, who only last month said Alli had the potential to be as good as the likes of Gerrard, Rooney and Owen.

``It's an absolute wonder goal,`` said Robinson during his post-match press conference on Saturday. ``There won't be many better goals scored by a 17-year-old up and down the country this weekend.

``But it's not just the goal, he was fantastic. He was all over the pitch and covered every single blade of grass.

``I think he's certainly proved he is one of the best players in the league. His physical components are scary at times.``

Robinson's latest eulogy is one of many he has afforded Alli this season, and with good reason.

The England Under-21 international stands at over six feet tall, can run at defenders with power and pace, and is comfortable on the ball - even in tight situations.

In the words of Robinson the Dons academy product is shaping up to be a `special player`.

Following Alli's hat-trick in a 3-1 win at Notts County on March 11, Robinson tipped him for the big time. And the 33-year-old should be a good judge of talent having worked as a youth coach at Liverpool for seven years prior to getting the MK Dons job.

``You forget how young Dele is and his maturity for a 17-year-old is there for all to see,`` said Robinson.

``He will be up there with Steven Gerrard, Wayne Rooney, Michael Owen - he is that good.

``I've been saying it for a long, long time. The kid is unique. I worked with young kids at Liverpool and I also worked with some of the best players in the world.

``What can't this kid do? He's good in the air, he's quick, he's 6ft-plus, he scores goals, he tackles - what more do you want?``

Liverpool are aware of Alli's potential having watched him on a handful of occasions this season, and do not be surprised if Brendan Rodgers sends Hunter to check up on the teenager again before the end of the campaign. However, he will not come cheap.

Robinson added: ``I don't want to sell him, the chairman doesn't want to sell him. But there will be a day that we have to. It's going to take millions.``
