Better than Lampard, Gerrard & Beckham? Goal-scoring Alli on pace to be England's next superstar
Dele Alli's star continues to rise as he played a key role in Tottenham's 4-0 win over Watford on Saturday.
The Spurs midfielder notched a stunning opening goal against the Hornets, taking him to a total of 40 combined Premier League goals and assists in his young career.
And, just three days before he turns 21, Alli's stunning run to begin his career can be put into more perspective when comparing him to other recent England greats.

Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard and David Beckham rolled into one, Alli's nose for goal is proving a valuable asset to Mauricio Pochettino's side.
With 26 goals and 14 assists before his 21st birthday, Alli has all the makings of England's next superstar.
