Dele Alli: Tottenham still a title threat

Dele Alli believes Tottenham are still in with a chance of winning the Premier League title despite their recent drop in form.

Successive away defeats to Chelsea and Manchester United have seen Spurs slip down the table and they head into the midweek visit of Hull fifth in the table, 10 points behind the Blues.

Having tailed off in the closing stages of last year’s title race, Mauricio Pochettino’s men are yet to truly rediscover their groove, especially on the road.

Their home performances have been good and after beating Swansea 5-0 on their last outing at White Hart Lane they are 1.22 to win on Wednesday, with the draw 6.50 and the struggling Tigers 15.00.

Alli’s mixed form has in itself been a worry for Tottenham, who are 26.00 to win the Premier League, but he has not lost any of the self-belief that has underpinned his rise to the top.

The England international says his side are happy to keep plugging away and believes they will be back challenging for top spot once they rediscover their consistency.

He told Sky Sports News HQ: “We are a team that is confident in ourselves, we fancy ourselves against anyone. I think we need to be a little bit more consistent.

We are still working on it and we are still working together as a team. “But we have got a great side and we are happy to sit underneath the radar and just keep picking up points.

“It is no good being good in halves of games or in one game and not in the next one. When we find our rhythm, I am sure we will be a great team again.”
