Dele Alli was struck on the head by a plastic bottle during Tottenham’s Carabao Cup quarter-final against Arsenal.
The England ace, who netted his side’s second goal in the2-0 win at the Emirates,was hit by the object with just over 20 minutes left.
Alli was by the touchline after the ball had gone out of play, in front ofArsenalsupporters, when the incident occurred.
The 22-year-old responded by holding up two fingers to signal the 2-0 scoreline to Arsenal fans and was subsequently spoken to by referee Jon Moss.
Arsenal are analysing CCTV in a bid to identify the supporter who threw the bottle.
Alli played an influential part in proceedings at the Emirates, supplying the opener for Son in the first half before producing a sublime finish to doubleTottenham’s lead on the hour mark.
His response to being struck by the bottle went down well with Spurs fans…
Today’s the day Dele Alli became a Spurs legend.

I proper love how Dele Alli likes to wind up Arsenal fans. It’s nothing against that fanbase I just think it’s great to see a player embracing the rivalry properly

You’ve gotta love Dele Alli. Great performance, great goal and great reaction to being hit by missile. Worthy mom. Very mature performance from whole team tbh. Their gloating after league game definitely made us more determined. Rose and Davies also excellent but real team win.
