Dele Alli is one of the best young midfielders in the world and is a key figure in the current Tottenham Hotspur team.

While the youngster’s overall performance for Mauricio Pochettino’s side was encouraging, there was one incident which did not go down well with Tottenham legend Gary Lineker.

During the 59th minute, the former Milton Keynes Dons youngster was booked for diving, which led to Lineker urging him to “cut the occasional nonsense from his game”.

Alli is a young midfielder with a lot of potential, and he could develop into a world-class footballer in the coming years.

The youngster joined Tottenham from MK Dons in February 2015 for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £5 million.
