Alan Shearer has told BBC programme Match of the Day 2, which was broadcast on 20th March, that Dele Alli and Harry Kane have developed a telepathic understanding of each other’s games at Tottenham Hotspur.
Alli and Kane have both been in wonderful form this season, and they linked up to devastating impact against Bournemouth.
Alli set Kane up for his second goal in the Lilywhites’ 3-0 win over Eddie Howe’s side yesterday, and Shearer was purring over the connection the two attackers have, with Kyle Walker also involved.
“[Kane, Alli and Walker] have such a good understanding,” the former Newcastle United striker said. “They’re mates on the pitch, but they are off it as well.
“It’s almost telepathic. As soon as Alli touches the ball, Kane is on his bike. He knows what he’s going to do.
“They trust each other and they know each other’s games. And it’s not just those three, but you have Danny Rose and Dier in there also.”
Alli also set up both of Kane’s goals against Aston Villa two weekends ago, when Spurs picked up a 2-0 win over the Midlands side.
The pair look to have a bright future for both club and country, and they have been vitally important to Spurs’ push for the title this season.
Tottenham are currently just five points behind top of the table Leicester City, and Shearer has not seen any suggestions that Mauricio Pochettino’s side are about to choke under the pressure.
“There were no nerves at all,” he added. “They’re a very, very good team. They’ve scored more goals than any team in the league and have the best defensive record in the league.”
Tottenham return to action after the international break with a match against Liverpool at Anfield on April 2nd.
