Graeme Souness reveals which Tottenham player stood out during win v Chelsea (not Alli)
By Amir Mir
Graeme Souness believes Victor Wanyama was the standout player as Tottenham beat Chelsea 2-0 at White Hart Lane on Wednesday night.
Midfielder Wanyama played the full match as he helped his side keep a valuable clean sheet and secure a much-needed three points in the Premier League title race.
The 25-year-old kept Chelsea winger Eden Hazard quiet throughout the match as two goals from Dele Alli sealed the win.
England international Alli guided two headers passed Thibaut Courtois on either side of the break after two delightful crosses from Christian Eriksen.
Despite Alli’s goals, former Liverpool midfielder and Sky Sports pundit Souness felt that Wanyama was the one who produced the best display.

“Arguably the best player on the pitch. He was different gravy tonight,” Souness told Sky Sports.
Wanyama moved to White Hart Lane in the summer when he made a £11 million switch from Premier League outfit Southampton.
The midfield powerhouse has played 20 Premier League games this season, scoring two goals against Crystal Palace and Hull.
Additionally, he has played 26 games in all competitions, helping his team keep ten clean sheets.
The result at the Lane means Pochettino’s side move above north London rivals Arsenal in the league table.
The two goals from Alli also mean he has now scored six goals in his last three games as his team will now prepare for an FA Cup weekend clash against Aston Villa.
