Tottenham Hotspur are back in Champions League action tonight and they will be hoping for a reaction following that drubbing against Bayern Munich last time out.
It has been a season to forget so far for Mauricio Pochettino's side, who have produced abject performance after abject performance.
Spurs supporters are not in the mood as it is because their team haven't been producing the performances at all during this campaign, which has led to widespread criticism across the board.
But that didn't stop Alli from claiming that he is fully aware of Tottenham's 'world-class' capabilities, as quoted by Goal.
It isn't an ideal time to make such comments given Tottenham's form, and they are comments which were slammed down by his supporters.
There were some who feel that their team have never reached that level before, as others just dismissed his claim completely.
There hasn't even been a glimmer of any world-class ability from Tottenham this season, and it certainly wasn't on show during the 1-1 draw against Watford over the weekend.
Now, Spurs will turn their attention to Champions League matters and taking on Red Star Belgrade at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Another poor showing here will only anger the home fans more, who at the very least, are looking for some fight and a performance from the team.
Here is a selection of Spurs fans reacting to Alli's comments:
Maybe it's time that they realise they are not that good unless they play at a high intensity. They are only a good team by leaving everything on the pitch. Time and time again a drop in intensity leads to poor results. Benn the same since poch came in.— graham kinns (@kinnsyg) October 19, 2019
Crikey. World class, give over, was painful watching that shower in that stadium.— Rizzla (@loopyrizla) October 19, 2019
Should have sold him while he was still worth something.— Mike_D (@MikeDBigworm) October 19, 2019
Not believing that. This team isn't world class. There isn't one player whose form in the league over the last 20 games has been good enough to be called World class. Not even Kane.— Shreyas Rao (@Spurs_Shreyas) October 20, 2019
Need a total clear out.
They aren't as good as they think they are full stop— John slater (@OnecoJohn) October 20, 2019

We’re not world class. Stop believing in the hype. Man City have world class players. Liverpool have a world class system. We have a world class....stadium. ?There’s levels to it— Gianni Fortes (@FortesGianni) October 19, 2019
