Tottenham star Dele Alli was announced as the winner of the PFA Young Player of the Year award earlier along with N’Golo Kante, who was announced as the PFA Player of the Year for the 2016/17 season. It certainly was a well-deserved win for both the players and there can be no complaints.
Alli wins the award for the second consecutive time, after winning the same for the 2015/16 season as well. He has been sensational for Tottenham all season and has become an important part of Mauricio Pochettino’s plans at White Hart Lane. The young Englishman, who recently turned 21, has scored 20 goals and 11 assists in 44 appearances.
He even scored in the FA Cup semi-final loss against Chelsea and this award should heal some pain that Tottenham suffered on Saturday. It was an agonising loss as Spurs conceded 2 goals against the run of play.
Nevertheless, Spurs supporters were right behind their team and it looked as though Tottenham may yet make a comeback, until a Nemanja Matic wonder goal sealed things in Chelsea’s favour. This leaves Spurs with only one good shot at silverware this season, with them trailing Chelsea by 4 points.
The Tottenham faithful were delighted with Alli’s win and they took Twitter to express their joy. We managed to gather some tweets and put it together.
