Tottenham duo Dele Alli and Eric Dier create more chances in one game than ever before

Audi Cup 2015

Tottenham's midfield duo Eric Dier and Dele Alli both set personal records for creativity.

Tottenham duo Dele Alli and Eric Dier are best of pals off the field and on it they continue to combine to great effect.

Alli is often played in a more advanced role but dropped deeper to sit alongside Alli in the match against Swansea City, with midfielder Mousa Dembele out injured.

The pair combined to great effect in the 2-1 comeback win, both setting personal best records from a creative perspective.

Alli made four key passes, more than he has done in any Premier League game for the club.

Eric Dier held up his end of the deal too, creating three chances for his team.

The pair made 149 touches combined during the victory, and are forging a partnership which can be the cornerstone for the club's success for years to come.

Getting Mousa Dembele in back for the North London derby next weekend would be a big boost for Spurs, but if the Belgian does not recover from injury then they should have confidence their young duo can really take the game to Arsenal.
