Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino claims that he never doubted in the ability of Dele Alli, as the midfielder has gone from strength to strength so far this season. After making a lot of impression in the 2016-17 campaign, the midfielder has come in with some inconsistent performances this season. Dele Alli, however, helped Tottenham get a victory over Burnley and Southampton. He came up with one goal and four assists in these matches. This has helped him recover from a poor run of form which has plagued him from the start of November.
Manager Pochettino says that he did not have any doubts that Dele Alli will be able to rediscover his form. The 21-year-old was not included for the recent game against Brighton and it was seen as a tough moment for Alli. After having had one of their best campaigns in recent times, Spurs have been struggling to replicate the results from the 2016-17 season. The club are finding it difficult to even make it to the top four places. At the moment, the team sits just outside the top four with the likes of Liverpool and Arsenal looking in better shape. Spurs will have to rediscover form rather quickly, as the team will be facing the likes of Juventus in the Champions League last 16 round next month.

Ending the Premier League season on the 5th position is something that Mauricio Pochettino was happy to see his team accomplish as Tottenham Hotspur was able to squeeze and snatch a spot that will allow the team of Pochettino to get into the group stages of the Europa League in the next season.
Even though Mauricio Pochettino is proud of what his team achieved, he is hoping to sign a few players that can help him in finishing at an ever higher spot but in order for this to happen, Pochettino will need to have the support from the owner and chairman as those are the main figures of the club who have to take the financial decisions of Tottenham Hotspur.
Pochettino said: “For us next season, we will try to improve our squad and fight from the beginning of the season for the top four. It is a difficult thing, but we need to be ambitious. The win means we go straight to the Europa League groups, so we have more time to prepare for the season. To finish above Liverpool, Southampton and Everton is a very good thing for Tottenham.”
“For us, our goal next season is to try and improve our squad and try to fight from the beginning of the next season for the top four. It’s a difficult thing but we need to be ambitious.”
Those were the words that Mauricio Pochettino told to the media after Tottenham Hotspur managed to defeat Everton on their last match of the season which allowed his team on automatically advancing and earning their qualification spot for the Europa League of the upcoming year.
This victory against Everton was not only important for Tottenham Hotspur because it enabled their passage to the Europa League of next year (and they are already installed as fourth favourites according to Ladbrokes) but it’s also meaningful for the club due to the fact that it’s the first time they manage to defeat Everton at Goodison Park since 2007.
Tottenham Hotspur’s game against Everton concluded in a 1-0 victory for the squad of Pochettino with the only goal of the entire match arriving from Harry Kane as the youngster scored it with a first half header.
