Dele Alli insists he is remaining grounded despite some hair-raising praise from idols and a dream season with Tottenham. http://www.hockeycanadiensnhl.com/authentic-henri-richard-canadiens-jersey/ . The Spurs midfielder, 19, has been on superb form since making his debut at the start of the season following a move from MK Dons last January.He has seven goals in the Premier League as Spurs sit in second place, scored on his full England debut, and is one of the favourites for the PFA Young Player of the Year award in his debut top-flight campaign. The praise has flooded in from all angles - Sir Alex Ferguson compared Alli to a young Paul Gascoigne, while Steven Gerrard said the 19-year-old is better than he was at that age - but to his credit, Alli is realistic and wont get carried away.In an exclusive interview with Sky Sports Geoff Shreeves, Alli said: Its a hard one to take in [Fergusons praise], for one of the greatest managers ever to compliment you like that, it means a lot and its a huge honour.But I dont want to get carried away with things like that, its important I keep working hard and dont think too much about those things.On Gerrard, Alli added: It makes your hair stand up, you cant really believe it. Hes someone Ive looked up to massively since growing up, he was a great player and a legend. He was my idol and for him to say something like that means a lot to me.It has been crazy, its been crazy for me obviously. Ive always been quite confident in my ability and I knew where I wanted to go. Alli scored for England on his full debut against France in November Maybe I didnt expect it to go this well so quickly but I always had the feeling Id keep working hard and try to be the best player I can.Its a bit of a dream come true, its one of those ones where Im still waiting to be woken up, but like I say anything can happen. you could go out there and, god forbid, get an injury on the pitch or in training. The 19-year-old is one of the favourites for the PFA Young Player of the Year awards Alli shows no sign of waking up from his dream any time soon, and with Euro 2016 approaching, even bigger and better things could be on the horizon.He has started two of the last three England games and looks a good bet to start in France, but his main priority is keeping his feet on the ground.Im still 19 and Ive got a lot to learn, Ive got to keep improving and not get too carried away with myself. Thankfully Ive got great support around me to keep my feet on the floor. Alli was rewarded with a new five-year contract in January Its been a great year for me, but Ive just got to keep working hard and hopefully next year will be even better.Its important you stay professional and keep working and Im thankful for everything thats happened to me. An afternoon with Alli Geoff Shreeves gives his account of speaking exclusively to Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli Id love to go [to Euro 2016], it would be a dream come true but I dont think my place is concrete. Theres a lot of young, hungry players there. It has the same feeling as at Spurs.Alli looks the ideal all-round midfielder to boost Englands hopes of success in France this summer, but his balance of self-confidence and realistic ambition to improve is refreshing. Steven Gerrard says Alli was better than himself at his age His temper has come into question on occasions this season after an altercation with West Hams Mark Noble in November and a similar incident with Fiorentinas Nenad Tomovic in February.When asked what he could work on to continue his success, Alli said: A lot of people would say my temper! But I dont think thats something I need to work on. Spurs old boys to decide title? The Tottenham old boys that can deny Leicester their title dreams Its not something I worry about, I can control my temper! Its something Ive always had since I was younger growing up. Ive done a lot to work on it to keep it under control when I need to, and the boys here help me as well.Defensively I could be a lot better, my decision-making at times can be a bit poor and my left foot technically I need to improve as well. Sir Alex Ferguson also said Alli was the best young midfielder since Paul Gascoigne I still have a lot to work on, nothing in my game is perfect and Im just going to keep looking to improve.When youre a young player coming into the Premier League, it can be daunting. But its important to stand your ground and let them know youre not just a 19-year-old kid and you deserve to be there with them. Key Battle: Dembele v Schneiderlin Matt Cheetham looks at the stats that show how the midfield battle could be key on Sunday. But is the youngsters rise solely down to his own work? Alli is keen to stress the importance of his team-mates, and in particular says his big brother relationship with Spurs midfielder Eric Dier has been priceless.We [Alli and Dier] have got one of those friendships where I think hell be a friend for life. I havent known him for that long but hes sort of taken up that role as my big brother here. Eric Dier (centre) and Alli (left) have both enjoyed a superb season, and are close friends off the pitch at Spurs Its strange to say but he does look after me as much as he can, even though I do bully him a little bit!He tries to keep my feet on the ground, but hell always back me in anything on and off the pitch. I always go to him for advice and hes very mature for his age, you can always turn to him and put a lot of trust in him.Harry is a world-class striker. If you put it through to him nine times out of 10 hell find the back of the net, or at least make the keeper work. Hes got great movement, when hes on the training pitch you see what hes working on and you know what kind of runs he likes to make, and his finishing is the best Ive ever seen.Tottenham host Manchester United on Super Sunday at 4pm on Sky Sports 1HD.

As for regular Olympic spectators, theyre being warned that most travel insurance policies wont cover acts of terrorism or war. The Games in southern Russia, which run from Feb. 7-23, are being staged amid unprecedented security and under global warnings of danger. http://www.hockeycanadiensnhl.com/authentic-carey-price-canadiens-jersey/ . Hughes, 30, is a former Major Leaguer with the Baltimore Orioles, having played in 14 games with the Os in 2010. He played with Class AA Binghamton of the Eastern League in the New York Mets system last season. http://www.hockeycanadiensnhl.com/authentic-phillip-danault-canadiens-jersey/ . QUARTERBACKS Carson Palmer (vs Colts)Last week: 30/42, 419 yards, 2 TDsWinners of their last three and now tied for the final wild card spot in the NFC, the Cardinals are worth keeping an eye on.There are a lot of clean shaven faces on the Montreal Canadiens now that the month of "Movember" is over. Brendan Gallagher, whose moustache wasnt the easiest to grow, is getting use to life without those few extra hairs "I felt the cool breeze on my upper lip today, but I think most people are happy the moustache is gone," Gallagher said. The Canadiens raised their fair share of money for Movember, a cause that helps raise awarness to mens health issues. The Habs raised the most amount of monney among the NHL teams, ranked eighth nationally and 20th internationally for total money raised. http://www.hockeycanadiensnhl.com/authentic-mats-naslund-canadiens-jersey/. The Canadiens were also the winners of a bet with the Vancouver Canucks to see which team can raise the most money. The losing team had to change their avatar on Twitter to feature the colours of the winning team for a day. On Sunday when it was first announced that the Canadiens won that bet, the Canucks stayed true to their word and changed their avatar to include red, white and blue.
