#thfc Hodgson: "I would advise Patrick [van Aanholt] not to square up to Dele Alli…my money would be on Dele." Hodgson also says he didn't think Alli dived.

Dele Alli dive vs Crystal Palace
Dele Alli again attracted criticism during the Palace game for diving.
n the second half Dele Alli tried to earn his side a penalty.
Alli, who has already been booked for diving three times this Premier League, went down in the Palace box as Wayne Hennessey raced out to meet him.
Alli dived. He went down long before Hennessey touch him. And the Tottenham midfielder seemed to engineer a situation where the Palace goalie would touch him without getting the ball.
