Tottenham fans react on Twitter as Dele Alli is axed against Crystal Palace

By Amir Mir

Mauricio Pochettino made the huge call to axe Dele Alli against Crystal Palace – and Tottenham fans agreed with the decision.

The reigning PFA Young Player of the Year makes way for summer signing Vincent Jansen as Pochettino selects a two-pronged attack for the Premier League encounter at White Hart Lane.

Supporters felt that Alli’s performance against Everton last weekend, and a poor Euro 2016 resulted in him being dropped, but another fan asked why playmaker Christian Eriksen was not given the same treatment following his poor performance at Goodison.

Alli shone for the north London club last season, following his move from League One side MK Dons, as the 20-year-old helped his side into the Champions League.

But supporters were now hoping that this decision will show that no Tottenham player is safe from the axe and they have to continue to deliver.
