Graham Roberts hails incredible Tottenham ace after Man City draw
By Dominic Toner
Graham Roberts has praised Tottenham attacker Dele Alli after he continued his goalscoring form against Manchester City.
The 20-year-old scored his 12th goal of the season on Saturday as Spurs earned a 2-2 draw at Man City in the Premier League.
Leroy Sane and Kevin De Bruyne pounced on rare Hugo Lloris erros to give the hosts a two-goal lead, but Alli and substitute Heung-Min Son earned a point for the north London club.
Former Spurs player Roberts has described Alli as “so impressive” after another strong contribution against Man City.
“Incredible goal tally already from Dele Alli so impressive 20 years old,” Roberts wrote on his personal Twitter account.

Alli is continuing to develop into a top player this season and is tipped to become one of the best in Europe.
The England international has flourished in a more advanced role this campaign under Mauricio Pochettino and is now adding regular goals to his game.
He has scored 12 goals and supplied five assists in 28 appearances this season across all competitions and is one of Spurs’ most crucial players.
Alli struck just 10 goals throughout the whole of last season and is certainly improving that area of his game.
