“Dont worry Dele, we all count it as yours” Spurs fans tell Alli to forget own goal verdict
By Bruce Grove -

Dele Alli showed why he has to be kept yet again when he opened the scoring for Tottenham in their narrow win over Fulham.

The goal was eventually awarded as an own goal, but it will not take the shine off a resurgent performance from Alli.

It delighted the attacker to have repaid Jose Mourinho’s faith with the goal, however, his joy was quickly cut short.

BT Sport posted the goal on their Twitter page, but Alli responded with a sad face emoji with the caption: “Own goal?”

Spurs fans were quick to assure him in the comments that they will always consider the goal to be his, no matter the verdict. Here are some of the comments:

Even though the goal was taken from him, his performance in the game means that he is returning to form at the right time.

If he continues and Gareth Bale also keeps contributing, Tottenham can be confident that they can achieve a top-four spot at the end of this season.

I must be living in a parallel universe to all the Dele lovers because for me the goal was yet another example of the fundamental flaw with his game. Whenever he has to immediately play a ball coming from the right he hits it with the outside of his right foot because he has no left foot at all. In the case of the goal it worked to his advantage but later in the game we saw the more usual scenario play out when Kane chipped a pass to him just outside the box and he tried another flick which he muffed completely. Even the commentator questioned why he hadn’t taken a shot with his left foot. The answer is simple – he couldn’t because he is unable to. There are none so blind……………

Perhaps he should be blended, Frankenstein-like with Lamela. Although I did notice Lamela played the ball with his right foot during his wizard dribble last night.
