Tottenhams Dele Alli has been nominated for the PFA Young Player of the Year prize. After just 31 top-flight appearances, hes thriving in the Premier League. The youngster turned 20 this month and looks set to help guide Spurs to their highest league position since they last won the league in 1960/61 and finished runners-up in 1962/63.Weve picked out 10 reasons behind Allis superb season... 1. Hes relished the step upSpurs signed Alli from MK Dons for an initial fee of £5m on transfer deadline day in February last year. He was immediately loaned back to the League One club for the remainder of the season. He scored 16 goals in all competitions in 2014/15, in what was only his second season as a first-team regular, helping the Dons win promotion to the Championship and being named Football League Young Player of the Year.At the start of this season, Mauricio Pochettino brought the then-19-year-old on from the bench against Manchester United in Spurs opening game. Its been a rapid rise for Alli but, since his Spurs debut, he has taken the step up in his stride. Alli received a yellow card on his league debut against Manchester United The youngster has cemented his place in the Spurs starting line-up and played in all but two league games - sitting out one of those through suspension - and signed a new contract in January this year.2. Oozing confidenceAt 16 years old, Allis first touch in professional football was a perfect back-heel pass in an FA Cup tie against Cambridge City. His second professional appearance was in the return leg when he scored a long-range screamer. Alli playing for MK Dons against Manchester United in last seasons Capital One Cup At 18, he helped the Dons demolish Manchester United 4-0 in the Capital One Cup second round, setting up three goals. A year later, Alli nutmegged Real Madrids Luka Modric in a pre-season friendly for Tottenham and, earlier this season, attempted - and scored - an audacious volley against Crystal Palace in the Premier League. 3. World-class credentials Alli replaced Ross Barkley to make his England debut against Estonia in October last year England manager Roy Hodgson handed the then-19-year-old his England debut against Estonia in October last year after just seven league appearances for Tottenham. One month later, he scored a spectacular opening goal on his full debut in a 2-0 win over France.Alli was also instrumental during the Three Lions 3-2 friendly win over Germany in March - a performance that could well have earned him a starting place this summer. Dele Alli excels in all areas of midfield 4. Goal threatAlli is a proven goalscorer at all levels. In League One last season, he played 39 games and scored 16 goals. Hes maintained that goalscoring habit in the top flight this season, scoring eight goals in 31 Premier League games and, as mentioned above, has also opened his international account. 5. He shoots, he scoresWhen Alli hits the target, theres a 31 per cent chance hell score. Five of Allis league goals this season have come from his only shot on target in each game. In total, his eight goals have come from just 26 shots on target - hes only missed the target on 16 occasions.6. Running staminaOn average, Alli has covered 12.41km per 90 minutes this season, the 18th-highest average out of 179 midfielders who have played the equivalent of one game or more.7. Creating with EriksenAlli has assisted nine league goals this season, creating seven of Harry Kanes 22 goals, making him the Premier Leagues fifth-top assist provider behind Mesut Ozil (18), Riyad Mahrez (11), David Silva (11), and team-mate Christian Eriksen (10). Alli has formed a creative partnership with Christian Eriksen Eriksen has also created 74 chances from open play and another 27 from set plays this season. But Alli isnt far off the Dane, creating 44 chances from open play. He has also created at least one chance in all but five league games when hes played more than 30 minutes. 8. Getting stuck inAlli doesnt just score and create, he also wins back possession. He wins 7.5 duels per 90 minutes on average, compared to the league midfielder average of 5.8. His appetite to win the ball may explain why he has collected seven yellow cards in the league this season. Alli told Sky Sports: Aggression is an important part of my game and also you cant let opponents think you are some 19-year-old kid they can push around. 9. Towering presenceAlli can also win possession with his 6ft 2in aerial presence, having won 36 headers in the league this season. He wins a modest 1.5 headers per 90 minutes on average, the 43rd-highest ratio out of Premier League midfielders who have played one game or more. Utilising his height advantage may be one area for improvement.However, in his second appearance for Tottenham, he scored a late header against Spurs current title challengers and league leaders Leicester, before Riyad Mahrez levelled the scores one minute later.10. Drawing foulsAllis control and skill through a busy midfield lures reckless challenges; hes drawn 62 fouls during this campaign, including one penalty against Norwich. Thats an average of 2.4 fouls won per 90 minutes, the 11th-highest ratio out of midfielders who have played the equivalent of one game or more.Watch Stoke v Tottenham on Monday Night Football live on Sky Sports 1 HD from 7pm.

Kyle Kuzma Jersey .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. After opening the season with two wins on the road, the second a dramatic come-from-behind victory at Miami on Friday night, the Charlotte Hornets can make franchise history when they open their home season against the Boston Celtics on Saturday night.The franchise -- the Bobcats/Hornets -- has never started a season with three straight wins.It didnt look like theyd get a chance to do that this season, either, when they trailed the Heat 65-46 in the third quarter on Friday night in Miami. But Kemba Walker and Jeremy Lamb -- the UConn connection, if you will -- led the charge and the Hornets, who won at Milwaukee on Wednesday, made it 2-0.We could have given up, but we didnt, Walker said. We kept wanting it.The Hornets went on a 51-26 run to leave Miamis home crowd stunned in silence.Right now, early in the year, frankly, these first few games youre just trying to find out what your teams about, and I do like the way we fight back -- thats the good sign, Hornets coach Steve Clifford told reporters after Friday nights win.Miami coach Erik Spoelstra aid, Theyre a well-coached, veteran team. They werent punch-drunk or anything when we went up. ... We knew going in we would have to play a complete game against them and we werent able to do that.The Hornets won both games without Frank Kaminsky, still out with an ankle sprain, and Roy Hibbert played only the first half because of a sore knee, reducing his role to one of a cheerleader.Clifford said Hibbert, who had the knee drained before the opener, told him he has this problem early in seasons. We dont want to mess around with it, Clifford said.As far as Hibbert playing Saturday nighht, the coach said he wouldnt know until tomorrow afternoon, I would think.ddddddddddddalker, who had 17 points in the opener, was limited to one field goal in the first half but came on and finished with 24 points to lead six players in double figures. Lamb scored 16 points, including a dazzling reverse layup late in the charge.The win was only the second in Charlottes last 14 games in Miami -- and it was the Heat who eliminated the Hornets from last years playoffs, in seven games.The Celtics, playing without injured Marcus Smart (ankle) and Kelly Olynyk (shoulder), blew most of a 23-point third-quarter lead and hung on to beat the Brooklyn Nets in their opener on Wednesday night in Boston. They then went to Chicago and charged from behind before losing to the Bulls.Boston was outrebounded 55-36 by the Bulls in a chippy game.They got 24 more shots than us. We only turned it over (12) times, Celtics coach Brad Stevens said after the 105-99 loss. So thats the obvious place theyre getting their possessions, on the glass. Thats going to be the No. 1 thing, that has been the No. 1 thing. Its something weve talked about. We have to get better at it.Saturday nights game features a matchup of the Zellers -- Tyler starting the second half and playing well Thursday night, and Cody scored 15 points in 14 minutes in the Charlotte opener and then 10 points in 23 minutes on Friday night -- after missing the preseason with a knee injury.Cody Zeller had to start the second half on Friday because of Hibberts injury.
