Video: Dele Alli is Taking a Battering on Twitter After Embarrassing Dive v Huddersfield

Dele Alli may be one of the most talented players in the Premier League, but the Tottenham midfielder is being torn to pieces on social media this afternoon, following a horrendous attempt to win a penalty.

Spurs are currently 3-0 up against Huddersfield at the John Smith Stadium, with Harry Kane dominating proceedings having scored an early brace for the visitors.

Former Premier League referee Graham Poll even went as far as to call for Alli to face retrospective punishment for his behaviour following the incident.
