It’s safe to say Tottenham midfielder Dele Ali has been inconsistent over the last few seasons. Since Jose Mourinho’s arrival at Spurs, Ali has drastically improved his form and is arguably playing the best football of his career so far. Previous experiences have outlined The England internationals age and many thought that the occurring problem was over. For people who have not seen the social media post, Dele Ali on Snapchat recorded himself wearing a face mask, before turning the camera to an Asian man and then a bottle of antiseptic hand wash. The caption read “this virus gonna have to be quicker than that to catch me”. Not long after the story was posted, Ali removed it and later apologised stating “it wasn’t funny, i realised it immediately and took it down” The FA is looking into the incident that took place and if it is deemed racist, there could potentially be a hefty fine and long match ban.
With injuries throughout the squad already, Mourinho will be hoping to continue the form from the previous result where they were victorious over Man city by two goals to nil.
Before hosting Leipzig in the champions league Round of 16, Spurs will face Aston Villa which should be a comfortable win and help them secure a top 5 position.
