Dele Alli highlights the area Tottenham need to improve on
By Emma Sanders
Dele Alli has suggested his side need to be more clinical in front of goal after their disappointing draw against West Brom.
Tottenham drew 1-1 with the Midlands side when they travelled to the Hawthorns on the weekend.
A late goal from Nacer Chadli put the Baggies into the lead against his old side but Alli responded with a last-minute equaliser.
“When you are dominating a team that much you can lose focus at certain moments, they had a couple of chances and put one away,” Alli told Sky Sports.
“It was a good performance [against West Brom] but we have to make sure we win those games.

“You have to have faith in yourself, keep believing and sticking to the game plan and hope when the chance does come, one of you will put it away.
“It’s a hard place to come, they really do work together but we felt we should have won,” he added.
Tottenham had several chances to take the lead in the first half, but didn’t capitalise on a dominating performance.
Instead, they were forced to come from behind to protect their unbeaten record in the Premier League so far.
Spurs haven’t been shy of goals this season, scoring 13 goals in their first eight league games but they’ve netted six fewer than London rivals, Arsenal.
In the game against West Brom, Tottenham had eight shots on target, but only managed to convert the one as Ben Foster put in a man-of-the-match performance.
