Alli’s rise from League One football has been incredible after he moved to White Hart Lane from MK Dons during the summer of 2015.
Since his move from the third tier of English football to the top flight, he has gone one to represent his country and help his club side challenge for the title.
Additionally, Spurs are on course to securing back-to-back Champions League places as they will also have their eyes on overtaking leaders Chelsea in the table with six matches of the season remaining.
Alli, who has scored 16 league goals from 31 matches, has been a key reason as to why Mauricio Pochettino’s team are four points behind their rivals.
The England international will be looking to add to his goal tally away at Crystal Palace on Wednesday night after Chelsea knocked them out of the FA Cup on Saturday.
