Rival fans accuse Tottenham Hotspur star Dele Alli of diving to win penalty

Dele Alli has developed quite the reputation in the Premier League over the last two-and-a-half years.

The majority of that is positive, but there is a side to the Tottenham Hotspur midfielder that rival fans have an issue with.

This season, the 21-year-old has been prone to play-acting, and was recently brandished with a yellow card for diving in the box against Liverpool.

On Sunday, Alli came under fire once again after the referee pointed to the penalty spot in the 88th minute of an FA Cup fifth-round clash between Rochdale and Spurs at Spotland Stadium.

Alli went to ground under the challenge of Harrison McGahey, and some felt that the England international hit the decks too easily.

A matter of minutes after Harry Kane netted from the spot, Rochdale secured a dramatic equaliser to make it 2-2 in the dying moments.

While much of the focus was on the League One club’s comeback, rival fans took aim at Alli.
