Can Dele Alli reignite his Tottenham career under Nuno?

It has been a frustrating 12 months for Dele Alli. He would have watched on over the summer and thought he should have been involved with the England squad. The Tottenham midfielder played a big part at the 2018 World Cup, but he was a long way from selection for Euro 2020. Jose Mourinho ostracised him at White Hart Lane.

The Structure of Elite Teams

To finish 3rd in any given Premier League season is some feat. For Liverpool FC to have had so many injures, players missing the majority of the season & others forced into roles unfamiliar, is even more so commendable. When COVID-19 hit the UK some 16 months ago, Liverpool sat at the top table as arguably the greatest team on the planet.
