The England and Spurs midfielder missed the first three matches of his club’s Champions League campaign this season after picking up a ban in last season’s Europa League, but he was back in the Lily White’s starting line-up this evening – and he didn’t disappoint.
After picking up a creditable draw away at Real two weeks ago, Mauricio Pochettino’s men knew a win tonight would perhaps put them in the driving seat to win their group – and Alli fired them ahead after just 27 minutes:

Harry Kane might be the superstar striker at Spurs, but Alli has definitely got a really great ability to sniff out a goal from absolutely nothing – some of the world’s greatest-ever poachers would be proud of this strike!
That’s only his sixth goal in all competitions this season – what do you think of it?
