Chris Sutton makes huge claim about Tottenham ace after win against Watford
By Amir Mir
Chris Sutton has made a huge claim by stating Tottenham ace Dele Alli is “world class” after his side thumped Watford 4-0 on Saturday afternoon at White Hart Lane.
Attacking midfielder Alli opened the scoring for the home team in the first half with a magnificent curling shot from outside the box.
Defender Eric Dier and a Son Heun-Min brace ensured Spurs recorded a valuable three points in their race for the Premier League title.
During the game and throughout the season, Alli has been a key part of that success, constantly providing the threat in front of goal.
Former Celtic striker Sutton gave this short verdict when responding to the 20-year-old’s display against the Hornets.

Mauricio Pochettino signed Alli from League One side MK Dons during the summer of 2015 as he excelled in his first season at the north London club.
Alli helped Spurs claim a Champions League spot as his performances throughout the campaign saw him win the PFA Young Player of the Year award.
Furthermore, he earned a call to the national set-up as he was on the plane to France with then England manager Roy Hodgson’s side getting knocked out of Euro 2016 to Iceland.
This season, he has gone one better, scoring 19 goals in all competitions, including 16 in the Premier League.
He will be hoping to help his team lift some silverware as they are currently four points behind leaders Chelsea in the table and face the same team for the semi-final of the FA Cup.
