Video: Tottenham star Dele Alli slammed by fans for blatant dive vs Crystal Palace

Tottenham star Dele Alli was seen taking what looked like a blatant dive in Spurs’ Premier League win over Crystal Palace this afternoon.

It turned out to be a good day at the office for Mauricio Pochettino’s side, and for Harry Kane in particular as he scored his 23rd goal in London derby matches with the late winner at Selhurst Park.

Alli, however, disgraced himself with this poor effort at playacting, with the youngster going down before contact was even made with onrushing goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey.

Fans are now all over the 21-year-old on Twitter, slamming the England international for his diving, with many suggesting he gets away without earning more of a bad reputation simply because he’s English.

Regardless of nationality, it’s clear Alli looks to have tried to con the referee here and that’s certainly not acceptable, so we all hope to see this talented player cut this side of his game out before too long.
