Chris Sutton makes astonishing comment about Tottenham first teamer

By Dominic Toner

Chris Sutton has made the astonishing claim that Tottenham ace Dele All is the best player in the world in his position.

The 20-year-old is enjoying just his second season in the Premier League and is fast becoming recognised as one of Spurs’ most crucial players.

The attacking midfielder has been a number 10 by trade during his short career so far, but has thrived on the left hand side of a front three this season.

He has made 42 appearances this campaign across all competitions, scoring 19 goals and supplying 10 assists in return.

Sutton has made the bold statement that he can’t think of a better player in world football than Alli in his attacking position.

“I can’t think if a better player in his position in the world,” Sutton told BBC Radio 5 live.

Alli has enjoyed a meteoric rise since his arrival in 2015 from MK Dons and has fast become a big favourite at White Hart Lane.

The creative playmaker has also become a key member of England’s national side and starred in Gareth Southgate’s squad during the recent international break.

He is expected to be in the running for the PFA Player of the Year this season after playing a major role in Spurs’ pursuit for the title, with the north London club currently trailing leaders Chelsea by seven points.
