Who will come out on top in the battle of the managers Nuno or Mauricio Pochettino?

Dele Alli has said he followed Harry Kane and others in committing his long-term future to Tottenham because they are on a journey together to "achieve something great".

Alli, who won PFA Young Player of the Year awards in 2016 and 2017 and has played 31 times for England, added that the Argentine boss has been important in his development. I'm happy. Of course that situation happened and I think he's clever and he's going to learn. "But it is not that they attached to me only", he said.

"I said before the game that maybe some players need more time to adapt to the league, but his commitment has always been 100 per cent".

"I can't think of a better place for a player of my age and where I am in my career, to have such unbelievable support and coaching staff to help me to keep improving". But as players, you work with the...

"You need to play for something that is bigger than a person".

Despite having four years left on his previous contract, Alli signed a contract extension at Tottenham until 2024 on Tuesday.

"Overall we had an unbelievable game and we stayed calm when they equalised at 1-1 and 2-2".

"I owe a lot of thanks to Poch for where I am at the minute in my career".

Spurs became history makers in the summer when they were the first club since the transfer window's inception not to sign any players and Pochettino thinks January might be similar.

West Ham youngster Grady Diangana got another start in the first team in the win over Burnley on Saturday and he proved that he's not just a flash in the pan.

"I'm not disappointed with the mentality of the team but we can't give away the ball so cheaply".

West Ham later cut the deficit to one with Lucas Perez's header in the 71st, but Llorente secured the Spurs' spot in the domestic league cup quarterfinals with his goal in the 75th.
