Dele Alli could be your best FPL midfield pick for the 2021/2022 Season
Tottenham Hotspurs Midfielder Dele Alli have not been much of an impressive FPL asset for 3 seasons now.
His 2020/21 season performance was his worst, scoring only 30 pts in 15 match appearances. This performance is in complete contrast with his most impressive season of 2016/17 when he scored a total of 225 FPL points.
However, the 2021/22 season may happen to be another wonderful season for the player as the arrival of Portuguese Nuno Espírito Sancto may favour him quite well.
Nuno was appointed as Spurs new head coach on 30th June, 2021 and was given a 2-year contract. In his attempt to building the squad since his appointment, he has included Dele Alli in his selection for the two club friendlies the club has played.
Dele Alli has scored in both appearances and even wore the captain armband in their 3-1 victory away from home against his former club Milton Keynes Dons. This goes to show that he may be a continuous pick option for the club in the 2021/22 season.
Also, He has said in an interview with ESPN that he wants to make this season his best.
“I want to make this year one of the best I have had. A lot of people have said I need to find the form I was in a few years ago. For me, I don’t even want to get to that, I want to go past that and reach my full potential to be the best player I can be.” According to Goal.com
He is currently prized at £6.5m and is affordable by any manager despite having FPL kings like Salah and so on. He may just happen to be the best choice yet.
