While Mourinho got it all wrong on Rashford, he does seem to have worked his magic on Dele Alli.

The 23-year-old has cut a rejuvenated figure ever since Mourinho replaced Mauricio Pochettino, and scored his fourth goal in as many games to put Spurs back on level terms with United prior to the break.

That flick in the build-up to his goal was delightful before firing the ball past David de Gea. However, Alli couldn’t spare the visitors of defeat despite his late charge for an equaliser in the match.

Nevertheless, the ex-Milton Keynes Dons man is clearly back on top form and will surely win his spot back in the England team.
