Asked if Pochettino was influential in signing a new deal, Alli added: "It's a big part of it".

Having committed his future to the club until 2024, the England global has said he wants to continue his development and start to win trophies.

The 20-year-old winger had a lot of possession during the game and showed no fear in dribbling at Burnley defenders.

"We keep saying that they are playing well - but we are not getting the results perhaps we deserve".

"We all want to achieve something great".

"I can't think of a better place for a player of my age and where I am in my career, to have such incredible support and coaching staff to help me to keep improving. The feeling around the place is positive".


MAURICIO POCHETTINO was understandably the happier of the two managers having witnessed his side see off Manuel Pellegrini's West Ham United to reach the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup following an entertaining fifth-round tie at the London Stadium.

"We are going to assess all the players and it is less than 48 hours to compete again having had the circumstance of playing on a pitch that is so hard to play on - it was tough and a very competitive game".

"I try and be balanced, and last season, even when we were flying, I said the margins are really tight, W he said. That's what I want to do, to keep improving as a player and as a person". "I want to keep improving and trying to become the best player I can".

Asked to expand on day-to-day dealings Pochettino Alli said: "He's a very nice guy but at the same time he can't be too nice".

"You can't just have the wheel of the ship in calm waters, you've got to take it when it's choppy, and you learn a lot more from that". "We are still precariously close to the relegation zone and with further games against the likes of Cardiff, Huddersfield, Crystal Palace, Newcastle and Fulham to come this side of Christmas, they must discover a ruthless streak to ensure they don't get embroiled in another struggle towards the bottom of the Premier League table".
