Dele Alli gives Kyle Walker the finger

Tottenham star Dele Alli destroyed on social media for dive vs Huddersfield

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli has this afternoon been torn apart by social media users, following his blatant dive versus Huddersfield Town.

Form

The two sides went head-to-head in a Premie League clash at the Kirklees Stadium in a 12:30 kick-off, with Huddersfield hopeful of continuing their excellent defensive record so far this season.

David Wagner’s men had conceded in just two of their opening six league fixtures to this point, with the Terriers currently sitting pretty in 8th place in the Premier League table.

Tottenham, meanwhile, came into proceedings on a good run of form themselves, having won their last three matches in all competitions.

Demolition

An early strike from on-fire Spurs man Harry Kane was added to by Ben Davies in the 16th minute, before Kane added his second of the day to essentially end the clash as a contest.

Moussa Sissoko added some gloss to the scoreline in injury time, though there was one worrying moment for the away side on an otherwise perfect day.

Simulation

With the scoreline at 3-0 and Spurs cruising, midfielder Dele Alli was booked by referee Neil Swarbrick for a blatant dive in the box, after he threw his leg towards Terriers goalkeeper Jonas Lossl in an attempt to draw contact.

The 21-year-old then proceeded to throw himself to the ground, in one of the most obvious cases of simulation viewers are ever likely to witness.

Reaction

Supporters of both Spurs and other clubs have since taken to social media to condemn the actions of the English international, with many calling for Alli to receive a two-match domestic ban, as per the regulations introduced by the FA before the season began.

Troubling trend

Today’s incident marks the second time Alli has been in the news for all the wrong reasons over recent weeks, after his middle finger gesture during England’s matchup with Slovakia on September 4th resulted in the talented youngster being slapped with a one-match international ban.
