Steve Archibald pinpoints two players crucial to Tottenham success
By Will Butcher
Steve Archibald believes duo Harry Kane and Dele Alli must continue to show their best form if Tottenham are to achieve success this season.
The England internationals have been in wonderful form so far this season, both playing instrumental roles in helping Spurs climb to second in the Premier League.
Replying to a fan on his personal Twitter account after Spurs’ 4-0 win against Stoke on Sunday, Archibald wants “the flow” to keep going through Alli and Kane, with the midfield providing support.
Unfortunately we only have one striker we can rely on. I yearn for the days of Archibald, Crooks and Falco…
