Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli has been hit with a three match suspension by UEFA for violent conduct in the match against Gent. The 20-year-old was expected to face retrospective punishment for his extremely poor tackle on Gent’s Brecht Dejaegere when the two teams met each other in the Europa League knockout stages.

Spurs failed to progress past the last 32 stage after a 3-2 score on aggregate. After suffering a 1-0 loss in the first leg, Tottenham could only manage a 2-2 draw in the return leg at home. This disappointing result was only compounded by Dele Alli’s sending off in the game.

Spurs never recovered from the red card given to the midfielder, who is one of the most influential players for the club. Alli has been in sensational form this season and has taken his game to the next level. Last season, he was one of the surprise names to break through into the Premier league squad. Now, he happens to be one of the top names in English football. The ban means that he will effectively miss the first three games of the Champions League group stages next season. Spurs are overwhelming favourites to secure a second straight campaign in the premier European competition.

Spurs are on the verge of qualification to next season’s Champions League after opening up a two-point advantage over Manchester City in the third spot. The club have been on an amazing run of form in the Premier League, losing just one game since the middle of December.

They have only dropped points against Manchester City, Sunderland, and Liverpool in this run. Other teams dropping points has enabled the club to take advantage in the race for the top four. Even though these dropped points have resulted in Spurs falling out of the title race, Pochettino will see this campaign as a significant step in the right direction if they finish in the top two places.

The club are 10 points behind Chelsea with 10 matches left in the campaign. Spurs are also in the FA Cup semifinals and are hoping to win the title for the ninth time in their history.

Watch the challenge Alli made here.

Tottenham new stadium

Tottenham’s new stadium saw artificial lighting for the pitch being tested in the past week. The moveable lights are expected to help the pitch grow but there was no grass on the surface as per the video.

Football.london claims that the new pitch could be laid as early as October. The report adds that construction firm Mace revealed at a “Business Community Liaison Group” at Lilywhite House that the pitch would be laid in October.

The report adds that the dates for the test events would be revealed a month ahead of their schedule. The construction firm and club are certain that there would be no more delays regarding these events.

Football.london further claimed that an artificial NFL pitch has been installed at the base of our new home.

The latest revelations are good news for Tottenham fans who have been waiting for the stadium to be completed.

We all know that our first visitors were supposed to be Liverpool and we have been playing our Premier League home games at Wembley so far. Tottenham did play all their home games at Wembley last season as well and so, playing at this venue shouldn’t be a problem for the team.

Tottenham will play their Carabao Cup Third Round clash against Watford at Stadium MK. The decision was taken with the help of the FA as Wembley is unavailable on Wednesday.

This would be our second home stadium this season after Wembley. Stadium MK will hold special memories for Dele Alli as we signed the youngster from MK Dons a few years ago.

The Englishman has become a crucial player for us and the midfielder spoke about returning to his old stomping ground.

The 22-year-old claimed that he tried to push the stadium to be selected for the clash against Watford.

Alli added that he was excited as the rest of the Tottenham players would visit Stadium MK. The 22-year-old had even hyped up the venue to his teammates.

It isn’t easy to make it to the top level and Alli added that his initial aim was to break into the first-team at MK Dons and then take it from there.

Ryan Mason

Former Tottenham star Ryan Mason’s football career came to a premature end after he picked up a skull fracture while playing for Hull City.

The former Spurs was facing Chelsea and hung his boots in 2018 but is adored by many fans.

Now 27, the midfielder shared a video of him scoring a goal for us four years ago and what a strike it was from the Englishman.

This was Mason’s first goal for Spurs and it came in a League Cup fixture against Nottingham Forest.

The midfielder might not have been the most gifted player ever but he always gave 100% on the pitch and his move to Hull City, unfortunately, did not work out.

Mason played for numerous clubs in the English system, serving stints at Millwall, Yeovil Town and Doncaster Rovers.

The former Spurs star also had one cap for the England national side in 2015 and a number of fans tweeted their love for the player after his post.
