JOSE Mourinho was pleased to be able to let everyone else rave about Dele Alli after the Tottenham attacker's resurgence continued in Saturday's 3-2 Premier League win over Cherries.

Alli, whose poor form and injuries over the past few months had seen him dropped from the England squad, has rediscovered his star quality since Mourinho arrived at the club, bagging a brace against Eddie Howe’s men.

Moussa Sissoko put Spurs 3-0 up before Harry Wilson's late double made it an uncomfortable end to the game.

Alli's brace made it three goals in three games - as well as two assists - and he has been the figurehead of a Tottenham resurgence under the Portuguese manager.

"Dele, I don't need to speak about," Mourinho said.

"The best thing that can happen to a coach is when you don't need to speak about a player because everybody speaks, all of you, fans, everybody speaks about him and speaks about him for the right reasons.

"He's playing really, really, really well. I couldn't ask for any more from him. He's playing amazing, scoring goals, assisting, working, fantastic."

Mourinho was not prepared to allow Alli's level be so far away from his best and also moved him closer to Harry Kane on the pitch.

He added: "Every manager has his own ideas and we're all different. Nobody is right and nobody is wrong, but for me, Dele is not a midfield player.

"For me Dele is not a player to play positionally in midfield. He is a player to be like he is playing, close to Harry (Kane), following some dynamics that we train but a little bit of freedom to associate with attacking players.

"This I think is the best position for him."

It was the first time Spurs had won back-to-back Premier League games since April following the victory at West Ham last week.

"The result is a bit strange, but that is okay,” Mourinho added. “That is the difficulty of the Premier League, the emotion of the Premier League.”
