Respected journalist slams the PFA after this PL star misses out (not Mane)
By Matt Bullin
The Telegraph’s James Ducker tweeted his outrage after Tottenham star Dele Alli was snubbed for the PFA Player of the Year shortlist.
Alli has enjoyed a hugely successful season at Spurs and has been shortlisted for the PFA Young Player of the Year award.
The shortlist Alli missed out on, the Player of the Year, includes N’Golo Kante, Harry Kane, Eden Hazard, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez.
The shortlist for the Young Player of the Year, which Alli made it onto, also includes Michael Keane, Jordan Pickford, Leroy Sane, Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku.
In Ducker’s tweet from his personal account he stated that it was ‘ludicrous’ that Alli had been overlooked for the main award shortlist.

He said: “How is Dele Alli not on the main PFA shortlist as well as the young player one? Ludicrous.”

Lukaku and Alli’s teammate, Kane, were nominated for both awards so it does seem odd that Alli was overlooked for the main award.
The 21-year-old has been in red-hot form all season and has scored 16 goals and provided six assists from midfield in his 30 Premier League appearances.
The starlet has also already amassed 17 caps for England and scored two goals.
