Peter Beagrie : Dele Alli Worth More Than Paul Pogba 

Dele Alli is worth more to Spurs than Paul Pogba is to Man Utd, according to Peter Beagrie.

“On current form it’s Alli every day of the week,” he told the Premier League Daily. “I watched him at MK Dons and saw his maturity.

“He’s terrific playing behind the striker, he’s got the mobility and football intelligence to run beyond the striker and can also drift into wide positions. He loses no opportunity to shoot at goal, and he’s got loads of self-belief.

“There’s no doubt Pogba on his day is absolutely outstanding, but on current form and value to his team it’s got to be Dele Alli.”

He added: “As far as athletic ability goes, I look at the Spurs midfield and think it’s far and above more athletic. There’s more dynamism, craft and creativity.

“I think Tottenham score very, very heavily in the midfield department whereas United are still uncertain.”

Tottenham paid MK Dons just £5m for Dele Alli in February 2015, while Manchester United forked out a world-record £93.25m to bring Pogba back to Old Trafford in the summer.
