It's incredible to think that Dele Alli was part of the MK Dons side that shocked English football with a 4-0 victory over Manchester United just over a year and a half ago.

The youngster now plies his trade with Tottenham Hotspur and has earned himself six England caps following an excellent debut season at White Hart Lane.

It seems inevitable that he will feature at this summer's European Championships, especially so given his impressive haul of eight goals and nine assists in the Premier League thus far.

His outrageous volley against Crystal Palace, for example, was nothing short of world-class and a strike fans would expect from Europe's finest, not a 20-year-old halfway through his first season in the Premier League. The best is yet to come.


A little under two months ago, during a must-win Europa League clash with FC Midtjylland, an unknown, home-grown striker was handed his first Manchester United appearance following Anthony Martial's injury in the warm up.

Since then, having scored seven goals in 12 games across all competitions, Marcus Rashford has well and truly announced himself to the world.

The 18-year-old striker has enjoyed a phenomenal start to life in United's first team and injected his side with much-needed pace going forward.

Rashford is deceivingly strong for his age and possesses intelligent movement, which has bamboozled some of the Premier League's best defenders and often allowed him space to clinically dispatch when given half a chance.

Calls for the youngster to feature for England in France this summer are perhaps premature, but if his career continues along its current trajectory, the sky is the limit for Rashford.


Arsenal have endured a disappointing season, where they currently sit fourth in the Premier League with no hope of silverware.

There has, at least, been one positive to take, and that's the continued growth of Hector Bellerin.

The 21-year-old has made the right-back position his own this term, using his blistering pace to excellent effect when tracking back or pushing forward, also snuffing out the threat of the Premier League's quickest wingers.

Bellerin has contributed a goal and four assists in the top-flight thus far, as well as helped keep 14 clean sheets. His performances have thoroughly pleased Arsenal fans yet trouble could be on the horizon, with Barcelona reportedly interested in the youngster.
