Chelsea legend: This Tottenham star reminds me of Frank Lampard
Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink claims that Dele Alli reminds him of Frank Lampard...
Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has drawn similarities between Dele Alli and Chelsea legend Frank Lampard.
Alli was the star of the show as Tottenham ended Chelsea’s 13-game unbeaten run in the Premier League with a 2-0 victory over the west London side at White Hart Lane on Wednesday night.
The England international scored a header in each half to help inspire the Lilywhites to victory over the Blues and move them up to third place in the Premier League table.
Alli has been earning rave reviews since breaking into the Tottenham first team under Mauricio Pochettino and is now widely considered to be one of the most exciting young players in the Premier League.
And Chelsea legend Hasselbaink believes that Alli has shown some similarities to Lampard with his style of play.
Speaking to Sky Sports immediately after Tottenham’s win at White Hart Lane, Hasselbaink said: “He has similarities to Frank Lampard running into the box, arriving there and wanting to score, having that little bit between his teeth. He has that – and Frank Lampard had that.”
Tottenham are now third in the table and seven points behind the leaders.
