Spurs ace Dele Alli discussed his poor run of form, whilst filming a promotional video for Adidas, and suggested that he only plays badly when he thinks too much, as quoted by the Daily Mail.
The 21-year-old midfielder was superb for club and country last season, scoring 23 goals in 57 appearances in all competitions, but he has failed to replicate that form this term.
Some pundits and fans are already questioning whether Dele has lost the burning desire that he once had, bit it does seem a little too soon to judge a player who was still playing League One football with MK Dons just 30 months ago.
The 22-capped England international is well aware of his dip in form, and explained how it might purely be down to the fact that he is thinking to much, as quoted by the Daily Mail:
"The most important thing is that I'm enjoying it still because I notice when I start playing badly it's because I'm thinking too much about the game."
Spurs are in the midst of a miserable run themselves, which certainly will not have helped Dele, taking just two points from their last four Premier League games.
And the 21-year-old will have to rediscover his best form sooner rather than later, if Tottenham are to have any chance whatsoever of forcing their way back into contention for a top four spot.
