Tottenham ace Dele Alli blasted on Twitter after dive and Ashley Young altercation

It’s fair to say that those tuning in for Man Utd’s clash with Tottenham at Old Trafford on Saturday were far from impressed with Dele Alli.

Aside from a blatant dive in a challenge with Phil Jones with the United man making no contact with him whatsoever, as seen in the video below, Alli also clashed with Ashley Young.

The pair were eventually separated before being given a talking to by referee John Moss, although their verbal exchange continued with Alli letting out a wry smile as United did their best to rile him up and force a reaction out of him.

To his credit, he managed to keep a lid on it and not let it go further to really cost his team, but ultimately it wasn’t enough to save him from the tweets below as his actions didn’t escape criticism.

With Harry Kane sidelined, Tottenham will have been looking to Alli to play an influential role in Manchester but it was a quiet affair at a rainy Old Trafford, with neither side able to break the deadlock in a tightly-contested first half.
