Harry Kane: Dele Alli is Key to Tottenham Hotspur's Title Challenge

The Mirror columnist Stan Collymore has conceded that he was wrong about Tottenham ace Dele Alli and his assertion that he should leave Spurs to further his career.

"We needed a goal to get us off the mark, and to be fair it was a great strike", he said.

We [QPR] were never going to sign him - he was always going to go to a big club, but nobody actually took the plunge until Tottenham came in, and what a player they've signed!

Dele Alli is supposedly worth 34.1 million Euro, making him the fourth most valuable player under 21 years of age in the entire world, according to the most recent Soccerex report, released late last summer. This is the fine line that Alli treads; for most of the game, he was outstanding, finding pockets of space between a patched-up Watford defense and scoring a glorious opening goal to set Spurs on its way.
