Twitter enraged by outrageous Alli dive

Minutes into the second half against Bayer Leverkusen, Dele Alli fell in the box. What looked like a nailed on penalty for Mauricio Pochettino’s side was waved away by the referee like a petulant child does when faced with a bowl of brussel sprouts.

With the game poised at 0-0 and the result mattering so much to their respective seasons, this decision could have seismic consequences.

Understandably, Spurs fans were furious that the referee refused to give them the spotkick, particularly with their specialist 12 yard man, Vincent Janssen, on the pitch. Other fans were not quite so forgiving of the England youngster…

Naturally, some fans slipped into the realm of paranoia.

However you want to look at it, Alli did not come out well from that phase of play.

Was it that bad? Really? There was a little contact, after all…

At least, in the deepest corners of Twitter, there are some who are willing to give Alli the benefit of the doubt.

Maybe a dive, maybe a penalty, either way Alli is not a popular chap.
