Alli accepts Euro fate

Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli has called on his side to finish the season strongly but admits it is a "bit too late" for the club to push for the top four after they won 2-0 at home to Wolves in the Premier League.

In their next league fixture on Wednesday, Tottenham are 3/5 to beat Aston Villa, who are 4/1 to win with the draw 7/2.

Spurs dominated the affair with Wolves, hitting the woodwork three times in north London, with Harry Kane and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg getting on the scoresheet.

In the race for the Premier League Golden Boot, Kane has now taken his goal tally to 22 and also has 13 assists this campaign.

Midfielder Alli was one of the players to rattle the post and although he claimed "it is a joy to play" with the likes of Kane, the 25-year-old was critical of his side's position in the Premier League.

Following the win, Tottenham are now five points adrift of the Champions League places with two games remaining and they now look set for a Europa League berth at best.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Alli said: "With players like this it is a joy to play - I'm just trying to express myself and have fun - mentally I just want to go out there and help as much as we can."

Asked about the club finishing the season strongly, he added: "It's important - we are not happy with where we are, we should be higher and we only have ourselves to blame.

"We are showing now what we can do but it is a bit too late - we just have to keep working hard and take it into the next season as well."
