Tottenham Hotspur suffered a disappointing 1-0 defeat in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final tie against Ajax in north London on Tuesday, and Liverpool fans were quick to have their say on Dele Alli’s display.
Spurs would have been looking to the England international to provide a positive spark against the Dutch outfit given Son Heung-Min and Harry Kane were absent through suspension and injury respectively, but he ultimately failed to show up.
The 23-year-old has generally struggled throughout the entire campaign and hasn’t matched the performances and statistics he has produced in previous years, which will surely be a concern for Mauricio Pochettino.
Does your club have a legend who is criminally overrated? Fans answer this tough question in the video below…
Reds supporters were obviously keeping a close eye on who they could face in the Champions League final should they manage to progress past Barcelona, but they were clearly left far from impressed with the former MK Dons man.
While one described him as the “biggest myth in English football”, another described him as “stinking up the place”.
The Anfield faithful may have wished they had signed Alli in the past, but it certainly doesn’t seem to be the case now.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Remember when #LFC twitter went into meltdown every time Deli Alli played…..

Agree. He’s another show-pony imo like Pogba. Overhyped average footballers.

Dele Alli has to be one the most overrated players in premiership, r maybe just me , anytime I watch spurs he is invisible most of the match.. having wee runs of 6,7 good games a season just ain't enough.. #opinion
