Dele Alli shares how Tottenham will pose a major threat to Manchester United
By Matt Farr
Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli believes they pose a major threat to Manchester United in attack.
The 20-year-old claims Spurs have re-discovered their goalscoring touch, and that United should be scared when the two sides go head-to-head at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Tottenham endured a minor blip in October, but have become more fruitful in attack of late, and have scored nine goals in their last three league games.
Their 5-0 victory over Premier League strugglers Swansea last weekend was a particularly brutal attacking display from Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
Alli believes Tottenham’s attacking stars will travel to Old Trafford in high spirits, and hopes they will fire them to victory.

“At the start of the season we were a bit slow when it came to scoring goals, but we’re pulling up now and we just have to keep it going,” he told the Evening Standard.
“It does feel like we’re turning a corner. Every team goes through a spell where their form drops a bit. I think we’ve gone through that and we’re now coming back stronger.
“I feel like we’re playing really well again now and we’re getting the results and getting the goals which is important. It was crucial to get the win over CSKA ahead of a massive game at the weekend.”
Harry Kane is Tottenham’s chief goalscorer, and he has nine goals in 12 appearances in all competitions this term.
Son Heung-Min has also proven effective in front of goal for Pochettino, and has six goals and five assists from 17 appearances.
They will be up against a Manchester United defence that has conceded just four goals in their last five Premier League games.
However, they have only recorded one win in eight games, throwing away a point late on yet again against Everton last weekend.
