Alli gets trolled by rival fans as Tottenham Hotspur send birthday wishes

Dele Alli has transformed into a Premier League regular and fully fledged England international over the last few years at Tottenham Hotspur, but he is not liked by all.

The midfielder has come under fire from rival supporters this season for his frequent play-acting on the pitch.

On a handful of occasions this season, the former MK Dons player has been booked for diving, some of which have been committed in a bid to win his side a penalty.

Questions have been raised this season over Alli’s form, which has dipped, but he has appeared to shut down the critics for now having scored twice and created an assist in his last two outings.

The furore surrounding Tottenham at the moment is related to Harry Kane and the goal that he believes should have been awarded to him against Stoke City last weekend.

Spurs won the contest 2-1, with both goals being credited to Christian Eriksen, but according to BBC Sport the North London outfit will launch an appeal to give the winning goal to Kane, who claims that he got a touch on the ball before it hit the back of the net.

Today, Spurs posted a tweet of well-wishes to Alli on his 22nd birthday, but it swiftly got hijacked.
