New Tottenham Hotspur signing Dele Alli is holding his own compared to Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey.

Both players could be rested when the two sides go up against each other in the Capital One Cup this week, with Alli still to take part in his first North London derby.

His form early this season indicates he will be a part of the fixture for many years to come, and will be a key part of Tottenham's plans.

Alli matches up well to Welsh international Ramsey, who is yet to score so far in 2015/16. Both players come out on top in different areas, and compare well.

Ramsey has played 540 Premier League minutes compared to Alli's 232, which is why the figures are measured on a per minute basis.

The Arsenal midfielder has a superior record in terms of final third passes, passing accuracy, and minutes per key pass.

Alli records successful tackles and interceptions more frequently than Ramsey, and narrowly edges his rival in terms of minutes per shot.

The England under-21 international would be quick to acknowledge he has a long way to go to replicate Ramsey's consistency, and match his two FA Cup winners medals, one of which he secured with a winning goal, but the early signs are that Spurs have signed a gem of a player.
