Allardyce Raves on

The youngster has attracted a lot of attention since breaking into the first team this season and his fine solo-effort against Spurs on Sunday has done nothing to dampen the expectations surrounding his development.

“It was a genius goal and you’ll struggle to see a better one all season,” Allardyce enthused.

“He picked the ball up in his own, headed straight for Vertonghen and Dawson and slipped them like they weren’t there, waited for the keeper to go down - a keeper who’s shown how good he is at one-on-ones and how quick he is off the line- then uses his outstanding ability to dink it over the keeper.

“There’s a lot of praise going to come his way, and deservedly so, particularly after that goal.”
