Dele Alli has scored two in two Premier League matches under Jose Mourinho at Tottenham and is hoping to be back in the England fold.

I'd suggest putting him back into the 11 in a different position and then wonder why he's not doing it for England like he does for Spurs. This will happen.

I still have nightmares about Hodgson playing him out wide in the last Euros. And everyone wonders why he had a terrible tournament...

Tbh, given the current England system there's not much point in playing Alli as we don't play with a 2nd striker/no.10. However I think he could be a really useful option off the bench if we want to switch things up and put him up top alongside Kane.
