Liverpool legend Harry Redknapp has backed Dele Alli to salvage Tottenham’s top-four mission.

The England midfielder has faced criticism for his form this season and has been snubbed by Three Lions manager Gareth Southgate.

Redknapp said: “Dele is striking a bit of form again. He is a key player for me, I’m such a fan of his. They tell me he is a great lad as well.

“He got badly criticised for his performance at Liverpool (in the 2-1 defeat) but he covered more yards than any other player by so much it was ridiculous. And yet he got criticised for not running or working hard after the game.

“When you looked at it he had certainly put a shift in. It’s not gone well but I think he’s a good kid and a good trainer. His form has dipped. He hit such high standards a year or two before. If he can get back to that form again then that would be a major boost.”
