By Alex Taylor
BT Sport pundit Jermaine Jenas has recreated Dele Alli’s stunning solo goal against Crystal Palace last season.
The former Tottenham star took a touch, before flicking the ball over his head and striking the ball into the net, just as Alli did in the 84th minute at Selhurst Park last season for Spurs.
The Premier League shared the impressive recreation via their official Twitter account on Thursday evening.

Jenas himself played for Tottenham on 200 occasions, scoring 26 times and supplying 22 assists.
Alli became a regular in the Spurs first team last term, scoring 10 goals and providing nine assists in 33 Premier League appearances in a sensational debut campaign that saw Tottenham finish third in England’s top division.

Spurs agreed to pay an initial £5million for the youngster, rising to a potential £11million depending on triggers such as Premier League and international appearances.
Crucially, Tottenham also agreed to MK Dons’ request for Alli to be loaned back to them for the second half of his first season at White Hart Lane.
It is looking like money well spent by the London club following the impressive way Alli has adapted to the Premier League.
