Dele Alli really is a special talent. The Tottenham midfielder enhanced his burgeoning reputation by scoring his seventh Premier League goal of the season against Norwich City on Tuesday evening.

It wasn’t long ago that Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere was being talked about as the next big thing in English football. Sadly, though, a succession of injury problems have hindered the 24-year-old’s career. Will he ever fulfil his immense potential?

Alli is five years younger than Wilshere and has played significantly fewer Premier League matches, but Opta have released a stat that will leave the latter red-faced. Scroll down this page to see the tweet.

Alli now has the same number of Premier League goals to his name and has played 92 fewer matches in England’s top flight. Wow.

Alli to start for England at Euro 2016?

At this rate, Alli is likely to start ahead of Wilshere for England at the European Championships in France this summer.

The former MK Dons star doesn’t turn 20 until April but is making an impact in matches week in, week out for Spurs.
