Revealed: What Dele Alli said to Patrick van Aanholt and Crystal Palace staff after Spurs win

It was a dramatic finish to the game at Selhurst Park

Dele Alli is no stranger to the dark arts of football and he made few friends at Selhurst Park as Tottenham left it late to defeat Crystal Palace.

Harry Kane headed home a late winner on the stroke of full time to maintain their unbeaten start to 2018 and move them above Chelsea into fourth.

However, Mauricio Pochettino could do without the drama surrounding England international Alli as he got into more trouble at the end of this clash.

He wanted a penalty after a challenge from behind from Patrick van Aanholt but enraged the home fans with the way he threw himself over goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey.

Van Aanholt approached the former MK Dons midfielder as the teams left the field and Alli couldn’t resist the chance to continue the conversation.

Kane and Christian Eriksen acted as peacemakers in an attempt to cool the tensions in the wake of the late victory.

However, they couldn’t prevent him getting involved in another exchange with the Dutchman and Palace staff as he entered the tunnel.
