Tottenham-owned midfielder Dele Alli has thrown his support behind the club ahead of Sunday's Capital One Cup final against Chelsea.

Tottenham are gearing up for Sunday's huge Capital One Cup final against Chelsea, with Mauricio Pochettino's men dreaming of silverware at Wembley.

Spurs may have hit a slight bump in form, but the squad will be desperate to right the wrongs from Thursday night's Europa League exit to Fiorentina.

Pochettino will be delighted to have reached a cup final in his first season as Tottenham boss, and will surely be looking to play a number of youngsters in the final.

Nabil Bentaleb, Ryan Mason and Harry Kane have all been key players under Pochettino having advanced through the youth and reserve ranks.

Pochettino has long been credited with the development of young players such as Victor Ruiz, Didac Vila and Raul Baena at Espanyol as well as Luke Shaw, Calum Chambers and James Ward-Prowse at Southampton.

His reliance on youth appears set to continue having landed MK Dons midfielder Dele Alli earlier this month, with the 18-year-old starlet joining on a five-and-a-half year contract on deadline day.

Loaned back to Milton Keynes for the rest of the season, Alli is currently sidelined with an ankle injury - but tweeted his support for Spurs earlier today using the now famous 'Spurs At Wembley' hashtag as his future team mates gear up for the biggest game of the season.

Alli is touted as one of the stars of the future, and whilst he's currently watching on as Tottenham prepare to walk out onto the hallowed Wembley turf, Pochettino will be hoping that Alli plays a big part in future cup runs and possible final appearances.
