Dele Alli shares two simple reasons why Tottenham have struggled recently

Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli back in action during the Premier League match between Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur at St Mary's Stadium, Southampton on Saturday 9th March 2019.

Tottenham Hotspur are currently in the midst of a woeful run of form domestically.

Tottenham ace Dele Alli spoke to the club's official website, and hinted that his side's recent dip in form has been down to a lack of chemistry and morale amongst the players.

Spurs have endured a miserable last few weeks, taking just one point from their last four Premier League outings, and their place inside the top four is now under serious threat.


Mauricio Pochettino's side currently sit just one point clear of fourth placed Arsenal, three ahead of fifth placed Manchester United and four in front of sixth placed Chelsea.

Tottenham just haven't quite been at the races recently, aside from their Champions League wins over Borussia Dortmund, and Dele told reporters how their lack of chemistry and morale has played a big part in their poor run, as quoted by the club's official website:

Dele Alli poses for a portrait session following an England press conference at Spartak Zelenogorsk Stadium on June 30, 2018 in Saint Petersburg, Russia.

“We’ve got to try to finish the season as strongly as we can. The (Barcelona) trip has been good. It's been great to all get together, keep working and train hard, just getting the team chemistry and morale back up again."

Tottenham do not play again until March 31st - a trip to Anfield to take on Liverpool, and the break has probably come at a good time for Pochettino's men.

Spurs must get their season back on track as soon as possible, because if they don't, they will be in real danger of missing out on the Champions League spots this season.
