Jamie Carragher: This Tottenham star isn’t at Eden Hazard’s level – yet

The former Liverpool defender says Tottenham star Dele Alli hasn't quite reached Eden Hazard's standard

Jamie Carragher doesn’t believe Dele Alli has reached the level of Eden Hazard despite the Tottenham Hotspur midfielder’s impressive performances this season.

The 20-year-old attacking midfielder has scored five times in three Premier League games against Burnley, Southampton and Watford ahead of the visit of leaders Chelsea on Wednesday night.

Alli continued his impressive goal-scoring run after the Tottenham midfielder scored either side of half-time to end Chelsea’s 13-game winning run and hoist Spurs up to third place in the table.

The England playmaker nodded past Thibaut Courtois from Christian Eriksen’s cross in added time at the end of the first half before Alli scored another close-range header in the second half.

Ex-Liverpool defender Carragher addressed the question of whether Alli is as good as Hazard at the moment in light of the Tottenham man’s recent form in the Premier League.

Alli scored 10 times in 33 appearances in his first season in the Premier League.
