From Hero To Zero: Reasons Behind Dele Alli’s Current Dismal form
Reasons Behind Dele Alli’s Dismal Form
1. Injury: Dele Alli has been plagued by injuries in recent seasons and this has undoubtedly had an effect on his form. His most recent injury, a hamstring strain in February 2021, sidelined him for several weeks and has likely had an impact on his form.
2. Lack of Playing Time: Alli has seen his playing time drastically reduced this season, particularly since the arrival of a new manager, Scott Parker, in December 2020. This lack of game time may have had an effect on his sharpness and confidence which are both key for a player of Alli’s quality.
3. Lack of Confidence: Alli seems to be lacking the confidence to take risks and express himself on the pitch. He appears to be playing within himself and not taking the risks he was so often known for.
4. Poor Tactics: Tottenham has often played a conservative approach this season, which has stifled Alli’s creativity and ability to influence games. The team’s lack of attacking intent has limited Alli’s opportunities to make an impact in the final third.
