    Mourinho expects Alli to stay at Spurs

    Jose Mourinho has expressed his belief that Dele Alli will stay at Tottenham amid rumours of a possible move to Paris Saint-Germain and confirmed the midfielder's inclusion in his latest Europa League squad.

    The Portuguese told reporters regarding the England international's future: "I see him staying.

    "There is a tendency now, when a player performs or doesn't perform, to give responsibility to the coach because they gave him the right stick or didn't. I always feel that 99 per cent of the responsibility is the player. I, and the staff who work with the player, have one per cent.

    "Something we all know [is that] since Dele arrived from MK Dons he had ups and downs: fabulous periods and other periods where he disappeared from the top-level performances. Under me, it was not different than before: moments where he was so good, moments where he was not so good.

    "This lack of consistency, when it happens in a player, the normal situation when you have other good players in similar positions, it's normal that when you're in great form you play, when you're not in a good moment you don't play. It's as simple as that."
