10pm Tottenham news LIVE: Dele Alli scores as Spurs hold on against Bournemouth, Sessegnon could be ‘new Ashley Cole’

JOSE MOURINHO hailed Dele Alli’s work ethic after his two-goal supershow in the 3-2 defeat of Bournemouth.

The new Tottenham boss first said he did not need to speak about man of the moment Dele — then sung his praises anyway.

Asked about Dele’s return to form, Mourinho said: “I couldn’t ask any more from him. He’s scoring, assisting, working, fantastic.

“Now he has lots of ­confidence to play.”

Moussa Sissoko’s name was sung by Spurs fans after his rare goal put them 3-0 up. Mourinho added: “It’s the best feeling for a player to have his fans with him.

“Amazing song, beautiful really and I was singing along . . . trying to!”

After closing the gap to six points on fourth-placed Chelsea, Mourinho added: “When I arrived, we were 12 points behind.

“I said if we think too much about it, we are going to get depressed. We are going into a period with lots of matches to put pressure on our opponents.”
