Watch: Dele Alli produces brilliant flick to keep ball in play in before Spurs goal


The Jose Mourinho era has got off to a good at Tottenham, and the new boss will have been really impressed with Dele Alli’s brilliant improvisation against West Ham.

The England international looked to have let the ball out of play, but he managed a piece of genius, not only to keep it in play but to get the ball forward to Son Heung-min who raced forward and played in an assist for Lucas Moura.

The goal was Tottenham’s second of the day shortly before half-time, and they soon went three ahead after the break at the London Stadium.
