Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli has revealed that Spurs' convincing win over Chelsea on Saturday was down to tactically sound planning from manager Mauricio Pochettino.
The 22-year-old scored his fifth goal in five games against the Blues as Pochettino's side overwhelmed a lacklustre Chelsea at Wembley Stadium to inflict a first Premier League defeat of the season on Maurizio Sarri's team.
Alli has now revealed that much of Spurs' success comes from Pochettino's meticulous pre-game planning, with the former MK Dons midfielder discussing how a plan to press high up the pitch and close down defensive midfield anchor Jorginho was fundamental to nullifying the threat posed by the Italian.
“The manager makes it very clear what you have to do,” Alli said, as quoted by the Express.
“So going into the game, you know your role and what you have to do. Y
“We knew Jorginho is a big part of them playing out from the back and dominating possession.
“He’s obviously a very good player and likes getting on the ball.
“On another day, we could have scored a lot more,” he added.
