Tottenham Hotspur maintained their 100% record on the road in the Premier League this season with a 4-0 win against Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday, but Spurs fans weren’t impressed with Dele Alli’s performance.
While a brace from Harry Kane and further goals from Ben Davies and Moussa Sissoko gave Mauricio Pochettino’s men a comfortable win in Yorkshire, Alli was disappointing and was booked for diving.
Having only just been punished with a one-match ban at international level following his middle finger salute, the 21-year-old probably should be looking to keep his head down but the simulation will only keep him in the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
Tottenham supporters were quick to have their say on the incident and his showing against the Terriers via social media, and while some said that he “needs to be dropped”, others went further and believe “he doesn’t care about the club anymore”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
That's the kind of crap Jamie Vardy does. It's a two game suspension if called a penalty and reviewed. He doesn't need another suspension.

Dele Alli needs to be dropped for a few games. Sonny deserves to start over him. #COYS

Running round like a big time Charlie throwing his hands in the air when he goes to ground! His control isn't great just now either!

He doesn’t care about the club anymore. All about making himself seem a wonderkid for Real Madrid to buy, when in reality he’s miles off.
