Tottenham sensation Dele Alli comments on nutmegging Luka Modric

Tottenham Hotspur Re Generation

Dele Alli shone during Tottenham's loss to Real Madrid.

Talented Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli is already making an impression at the club.

The new signing from MK Dons displayed his confidence in the Audi Cup loss to Real Madrid, by nutmegging former Spurs midfielder Luka Modric.

He followed this up later by doing the same to Toni Kroos, demonstrating his confidence in possession and willingness to take players on.

Alli was asked about his trickery post match, and indicated he was glad to have shone.

The midfielder is competing for a place in the Premier League opener against Manchester United, but there is a match against AC Milan to play tomorrow first.

If Alli is not selected at all for the contest then it will be a positive indication he has done enough to earn a role for the clash at Old Trafford.

He clearly feels pleased with himself, and so he should, for his display helps ease any discontent about the lack of attacking signings this summer, even if the club still need to buy alternatives to support Harry Kane.
