If Jose Mourinho has managed to do anything since arriving at Spurs, he’s found a way to get the best out of Dele Alli again.
His team were struggling against Man United tonight, Marcus Rashford had hit the bar and it looked like a second goal was on the way.
Then Dele Alli stepped up with a moment of brilliance. He plucked a high spinning ball out of the air before turning and clipping the ball past David de Gea. It was a truly world class moment from a player who has struggled for a while:

The goal has put Spurs level and also completely killed the atmosphere at Old Trafford. Mourinho will fancy his chances of taking all three points after this.
There was a lengthy check from VAR to see if the ball had brushed his arm, but it was inconclusive so the goal stood.
