Dele Alli 'can't see many better places to improve' than Tottenham

Dele Alli says he is relishing his Tottenham journey under Mauricio Pochettino and "can't see many better places to improve".
Alli signed a new six-year deal in September, and his 17 Premier League goals helped Spurs sustain a title challenge into May for the second season running.
But despite speculation about his future, Alli is predicting further improvement - both individual and collective - under Pochettino, who has taken runners-up Spurs to their highest league finish since 1963.
"It's a fantastic club to be a part of," Alli said. "We're all looking to learn together, build together and be as successful as we can.
"We all want to achieve stuff so it's a good place to be, and I think with the manager we've got here as well I can't see many better places for me to improve.
"You can never say what's going to happen in the future. No one knows, no one can predict it. But for me, it's important that I enjoy the journey I'm on, whether I stay at Tottenham for the rest of my career or if one day I have to leave and it's the right thing for me to do.
"I'm always going to be thinking about what's going to get the best out of me. It's just important I enjoy the journey."
Defeat at West Ham earlier this month effectively ended Spurs' late title charge, although they recovered to beat Manchester United in the final game at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
Alli said: "It's frustrating when we've played as well as we have, it's very frustrating when you don't have anything to show for it.
"It's a work in progress. We have to keep working hard and believing in ourselves and hopefully the trophies will come."
