Dele Alli: This has been my best moment in a Tottenham shirt this season
By Amir Mir
Dele Alli has revealed that Tottenham beating Chelsea 2-0 in the Premier League in January has been his best moment this season.
The 21-year-old was speaking after being named the PFA Young Player of the Year for a second consecutive season.
He won the award after beating the likes of Harry Kane, Jordan Pickford, Leroy Sane and Romelu Lukaku to the prize.
Alli scored a brace against the Premier League leaders at White Hart Lane in January, which ended their 14-match winning streak.
Antonio Conte’s team were strolling to the league title during that time before their run was ended with a brilliant team performance from their rivals.

After another successful campaign for his team, Alli has revealed why that Chelsea game meant so much to his side.
“The main one’s probably Chelsea at home, when we won 2-0, just because there was a lot that went into that game,” said Alli, as quoted by Sky Sports.
Spurs were knocked out of the FA Cup by Chelsea on Saturday when Eden Hazard inspired his team to a 4-2 win at Wembley.
Alli scored an equaliser early in the second half during that feisty encounter but it was not enough as his team went on to concede two late goals.
The England international will now be hoping Spurs can close the four-point gap on the leaders in the table.
Spurs have Crystal Palace, Arsenal, West Ham, Manchester United, Leicester City and Hull City to play for their final six matches of the season.
