Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has backed Dele Alli to return to form.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino believes Dele Alli will return to form in the near future.

The midfielder, who has scored 43 Premier League goals in 134 appearances for the north London club, has struggled with form and injuries over the past 18 months.

Pochettino, however, insists fans need to give the England international time to regain his form.

The Spurs boss said as reported: "We need to remember that Dele is still so young and the demand and pressure is massive for him.

"Everyone expects big things - he's English, he's an international but is still 23 years old. He was fantastic and of course he's dropped a little bit in performance but we need to help and back him.

"He needs to pay attention and be focused to try to improve and be strong again and perform in the way everyone expects."
