Mousa Dembele puts recently improved form down to position change

Mousa Dembele

Mousa Demebele has recently hit top form with Tottenham.

Dembele has enjoyed a great run of form in recent games with Spurs, and he has admitted to HLN that he is delighted to be playing a more offensive role for the Lilywhites.

The Belgian star said: “I feel fit, good about myself and have had good preparation. It's nice that I am playing more offensively at Tottenham. Now I can go to score.”

Dembele proved himself as an excellent attacking midfielder at Fulham before his move to Spurs, showing he had the power and technical skills to perform at the top end of the game.

However, he has never really shown this same form at White Hart Lane, being forced into a system which has not suited his talents, and even getting played out of position.

He has often been forced to feature as a defensive midfielder, sitting deep and holding play, rather than being unleashed as an attacking force as a number 10 or a winger.

However, he has been pushed forward in recent games due to the form of Eric Dier and Dele Alli in the double-pivot, and has hit new heights as a Tottenham player.

Dembele has netted three goals in his last four games, and has put in top class performances against the likes of Liverpool and Arsenal, even when not hitting the back of the net.

Dembele looks to be back to his best for Spurs, and although he is currently away with Belgium for international duty, fans will be expecting the midfielder to keep up his form when the Premier League returns next weekend.
