Report details which Tottenham star is one of the most fouled in the Premier League (not Kane)
By Matt Farr
Tottenham attacking midfield star Dele Alli is one of the most-fouled players in the Premier League this season, according to a report.
The Daily Star claim that Alli has been fouled a grand total of 63 times this season, placing the 21-year-old as the fifth most-fouled player in the top flight.
Alli’s trickery and jaw-dropping talent has seen him run riot in the Premier League this term, where he has ruined a number of opponents.
The England international has become an unlikely prolific goal threat for Tottenham, leaving pundits open-mouthed with an incredible 19 goals and 10 assists in all competitions.
Therefore it comes as little surprise that his opponents have done everything in their power to stop him in his tracks, bringing Alli to the ground on 63 occasions from his 30 appearances.

He is however, some way off the top of the list, with reported Tottenham target Wilfried Zaha leading the way, having been fouled an incredible 90 times.
But that will surely please Tottenham fans, with the statistic proving that their potential summer signing is a real nuisance in the Premier League, and can do job required of him at White Hart Lane.
A second Tottenham regular joins Alli in the top 20, with Danny Rose (48 fouls) standing in 16th place.
The 26-year-old’s bombing runs down the left-flank has provided Tottenham with an added attacking threat, contributing two goals and four assists.
Surprisingly though, there is no place for the likes of Harry Kane or Christian Eriksen in the top 20.
