In-form Tottenham Hotspur star Dele Alli scored the first of his side’s three goals in the opening 45 minutes against Watford at White Hart Lane, and it was a stunning strike.

Spurs knew that they needed to take all three points in order to keep themselves in the title race and maintain the pressure on the leaders Chelsea before the visit of the Hornets, and they certainly were well on their way to doing that at the interval.
The 20-year-old received the ball from Heung-min Son ust outside the corner of the penalty area, before unleashing an unstoppable curling effort into the far corner.
Tottenham supporters were quick to have their say on Alli’s brilliant goal – which was his 16th Premier League goal of an extraordinary season – and some believe he is already the best English midfielder since Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction to the goal…
