Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Alli display v Bournemouth
By Amir Mir
Dele Alli was substituted in the 72nd minute, as Tottenham produced a poor display in their goalless draw against Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon- and fans on Twitter questioned why Alli was subbed.
Spurs maintained their unbeaten record in the league, but missed the chance to go top of the league, as they failed to take their chances at Dean Court.
The north London club missed a number of good scoring opportunities and are in third, with 19 points from nine games, before the rest of the weekend fixtures.
Supporters felt the White Hart Lane outfit lost their attacking threat when Moussa Sissoko was brought on for Alli midway through the second-half.
The England international, who has scored three goals in eight Premier League appearances this season, scored a late equaliser in the club’s last league fixture against West Brom.

But, manager Mauricio Pochettino decided to bring off the attacking midfielder, which did not please the away support.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Pochettino should take a huge slice of the blame today. Poor subs bringing off Son and Alli – our biggest goal threats.

perhaps. But he's always in thick of it. Really tries for team. Eriksen, Alli & Son non existent 2day but focus on EL

The only question I would ask today was taking Sonny off. Thought he was worth a go from deeper with Eriksen & Alli misfiring #COYS

Keeping lamela on was baffling as was taking alli off. 4 dropped points in two games for poch to sort out. Has to do it quick #COYS

Poch should never have taken Alli off #COYS

I thought Alli had a good second half. Son barely had a kick but I'd have fancied him to score given a chance.
