Dele Alli has impressed Tottenham Hotspur’s supporters with the performance that he put in against Arsenal in the North London Derby.
Alli started in Spurs’ match against the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium, and his performance was assured throughout.
It was arguably the toughest test of the 19-year-old’s career to date, but he showed no signs of fear and looked comfortable with his surroundings.
Alli helped the Lilywhites claim a 1-1 draw against Arsenal, and he was a constant menance throughout the tie, which Tottenham largely dominated.
Spurs were on top for large periods of the contest, and they deserved the lead they got when Harry Kane tucked in midway through the first half.
Unfortunately for Spurs they were unable to hold on, and Kieran Gibbs netted an equaliser in the 77th minute.
Despite that disappointment, Tottenham fans were still encouraged by their side’s showing, and nobody impressed more than Alli. Here is the best reaction from social media site Twitter.
Also Dele Alli is the real deal. He can defend and attack. Has great close control and runs and runs. Build a team round him for a decade— Sibs (@SibsTHFC) November 9, 2015
After watching highlights back or the NLD; what a player Dele Alli is gonna be. Such a baller.— Alejandro. (@JamieLMiddleton) November 9, 2015
I firmly believe Delmer Alli will be one of the finest footballers in the world in a few short years. #THFC— Alex Seitz (@aSeitz4) November 8, 2015
Cazorla went off because he was "dizzy". Because dembele and Alli were running rings around him perhaps #THFC— Jake Parsons (@jakeparsons18) November 8, 2015
Not to mention when he says a 19 year old Alli, bossed the midfield. .....— #cosy (@One_Club_THFC) November 8, 2015
Dele Alli is 19 and just bossed a NLD, when I was 19 I'd still not figured out a washing machine #THFC— daz ultra (@dazultra36) November 8, 2015
