Alli has had two wonderful seasons at Tottenham Hotspur since his £5million move from MK Dons, form which has seen him linked with 11 time European Champions Real Madrid. "It's important we don't forget about what happened and how far we've come".

"It's a special bond and I don't think you always get that at clubs, that's why we've got to hold onto that, make that motivate us to hopefully be out there next year at Wembley lifting a Premier League together".

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli has insisted that his side have "definitely improved" this season despite once again falling short in the Premier League title race.

"He's a very passionate guy, an unbelievable manager". He is a father figure to the players. If you take your foot off the gas or have a bad attitude, he will let you know straight away.

Tottenham said an emotional farewell to White Hart Lane on Sunday, with a 2-1 win against Manchester United the flawless send-off for the 118-year stadium before it is demolished it make room for a new arena. We work so hard as a group.

Mauricio Pochettino's men conceded the title to Antonio Conte's Chelsea last weekend after the Blues got the better of West Brom 1-0 at the Hawthorns, which put them ten points clear of Spurs with just nine points left for the North London side to play for.

"It's a unusual one", Alli said of the season.

"This is our last time at the Lane and the day on which we shall bid our grand old home a fond farewell". Of course there's going to be rumours over the summer, but I think I'd be very surprised if most of us aren't still here next season. It was one of the worst atmospheres I've been in after the game [West Ham] in the changing room, everyone was so disappointed. "We finished obviously third last season, second this year - we've got to try and take that next step and try and finish first".

"We want to finish as high as we can, just to show that the start of the season wasn't how we wanted it to pan out".
