MANCHESTER---It was difficult to make
any sporting conclusions from Tuesday s
emotionally charged friendly between Eng-
land and France, four days after the Paris
attacks that killed at least 129 people.
Yet, even in the circumstances, it was hard
to ignore the performance of goal-scoring
England midfielder Dele Alli, who many are
saying could be the next big thing in the
English Premier League.
Alli --- an all-action, box-to-box, 19-year-
old midfielder --- has been one of the success
stories of the season in England, and is being
compared by some to former Liverpool star
It s a rapid rise for a player who was playing
in England s third tier for MK Dons as recently
as May, and started this season on the bench
for new club Tottenham. Now, Alli is a regular
starter for Spurs and seemingly assured of
his place in England s squad after scoring a
long-range opener in the 2-0 win over France
and being named man of the match.
"It s been a crazy start to the season," Alli
said. "It s all happened really quickly."
Playing under manager Mauricio Pochet-
tino at Tottenham will only help his devel-
opment. Pochettino is always keen to give
chances to English youngsters, demonstrating
that during his time at Southampton and
now at Spurs, where Eric Dier, Ryan Mason,
and Harry Kane are also young and important
members of the squad.
Alli has started the last eight games for
Tottenham and the team hasn t lost, helping
it climb to fifth in the standings ahead of
Sunday s home match against West Ham.
Alli s rise from nowhere mirrors that of Kane
last season, with the striker a regular for club
and country after scoring 32 goals in the
Here are some more things to know ahead
of the 13th round:
WENGER PRAISE: Arsenal manager
Arsene Wenger has thanked English football
for showing "great solidarity" toward France
after the Paris attacks last Friday.
Wenger was at Wembley Stadium on Tues-
day when England played France. Fans from
both countries sang the French national
anthem during a moving, eight-minute pre-
game ceremony that included floral tributes
and both sets of players standing together
around the center circle for a minute s silence.
"The football world has responded the
way you want it to respond in a big union
and togetherness," Wenger said yesterday
ahead of his side s match against West
Wenger was in Paris when the terrorists
struck across the French capital. He was due
to attend France vs Germany at the Stade de
France, which was a target in the attacks, but
a last-minute change of plans meant he
watched the game on television from his hotel.
AGUERO HOPEFUL: Manchester City
striker Sergio Aguero says he could return
after seven games out because of injury for
Saturday s home match against Liverpool,
which is the pick of the weekend fixtures.
Aguero was injured while on international
duty with Argentina last month.
"I do hope I can play this game," said
Aguero, who was in full training this week.
"I m doing everything in my power to get
to the match in top condition."
City winger Raheem Sterling will play
against Liverpool for the first time since leav-
ing the club in the summer. (AP)
