Tottenham boss Mourinho hails 2-goal Alli; explains positional change

His brace made it three in three games, as well as two assists, and he has been the figurehead of a Spurs resurgence under Mourinho.

Alli has been a shadow of the player that helped Tottenham to successive title challenges under Pochettino but appears to have his mojo back which is good news for club and country.

The Portuguese is now relishing the chance to compete in the North London derby, when Tottenham host Arsenal in April.

While Mourinho will be acutely aware that conceding six goals in three games is not sustainable, he has returned some smiles to Tottenham who moved up to fifth spot in the English Premier League, six points behind Chelsea.

Harry Maguire says the return of former boss Jose Mourinho to Old Trafford on Wednesday night can provide the flawless stage to show Manchester United are not a fading force. "It's hard to think about a project in Argentina for family reasons and other circumstances, so I'm not considering managing in Argentina".

'But, for the time being, the most important thing is for me to clear my head after five-and-a-half incredible seasons with Tottenham.

"There are a lot of clubs and attractive projects for me to take on", said Pochettino, speaking to Fox Sports in Argentina. However for the sake of my family, I would not refuse to work over here.

However, Spurs' championship spirit irredeemably diminished following an alleged deluge of internal crisis that has seen the club take a drive back to their inglorious days. I haven't had a lot of time to digest what has happened with me.

But according to Daily Mail, the Argentine has been cautioned against taking Arsenal job by friends and family members. But I expect to return to Europe to make decisions on my future. At my age I don't need a lot of time to recover.

Among those is United, who have targeted Pochettino before.

Bayern Munich are also needing a new boss after they parted company with Niko Kovac recently.

The Bavarians now have Hansi Flick in caretaker charge following the sacking of Niko Kovac last month.
