Tottenham star Dele Alli will benefit from Jose Mourinho’s guidance as Spurs boss just like Frank Lampard did at Chelsea, according to ex-Blues forward Joe Cole.

Alli has struggled for goals all season, scoring just one from midfield when Mauricio Pochettino was in charge.

It was the Argentine boss who signed Alli and turned him into one of the most promising English talents in the Premier League.

But in recent months, his form has waned, just as Tottenham’s has. And earlier this week, Pochettino was sacked by chairman Daniel Levy.
